Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn have officially come out. Of all places to show the world they are indeed a C.O.U.P.L.E they chose Reese Witherspoon’s weekend wedding to agent, Jim Toth.
It was Reese and Jim’s big day. Among those in attendance was a veritable who’s who of celebrity stardom. Newly single Renee Zellwegger, Toby Maguire, Robert Downey Jr, a pregnant Alyssa Milan and, drum roll…. Scarlett Johansson, 26, partnered by none other than Sean Penn, who is 50. Johansson and Penn nearly stole the show turning up together.
A close friend of Johansson told PopEater: “Scarlett is Jim’s client, but no one, including the bride, knew she would have turned up with Sean Penn,” they said. “Turning up at a wedding with your boyfriend is definitely a huge statement, especially that wedding. What it’s doing is announcing to the whole of Hollywood that they are serious.”
Another friend said: “Scarlett is head over heels in love with Sean. She normally tries to hide away from public attention, but when she’s with Sean she doesn’t care.”
Penn is known for his charity work in Haiti. Reports say the pair plan to head to Haiti in Spring. With this very public wedding appearance, it appears they are indeed a couple. Albeit a few years between them, but when you’re in love, does age matter?
