Scarlett Johansson, 26 and Sean Penn, 50. New couple alert? It may just be so. If true, this one certainly came out of left field.
Sources tell Usmagazine that the couple have hooked up.
Johansson announced her split from husband Ryan Reynolds a few weeks ago. Penn is currently single and on the mingle since his divorce from wife of 14 years, Robin Wright, was finalised last year.
This unlikely liaison reportedly kicked off when Johansson was staying at Chateau Marmont in LA, early January. She has been based in LA whilst filming her latest movie, We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon.
“Their first hook-up was in Scarlett’s Bungalow,” says an insider.
And what brought the unlikely couple together? Johansson has admired Penn for his humanitarian work in Haiti. “Scarlett first reached out to Sean when she was planning to visit Haiti with Oxfam,” says the source. “She knew Sean was living there in a tent and turned to him for advice.”
The trip never eventuated for Johansson, but the source continues, ‘”Scarlett’s smitten with him.”
Stranger things have happened at sea.
Oh, the scandal!
