Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn Are NOT Dating
2:51 pm, February 9th, 2011
This may actually be a case of ‘Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.’ Gossip Cop has been hearing lately that the two have been spending time together – whether it becomes (or is) romantic, is still to be determined.
We’ll update when more info is available.

According to the magazine, just weeks after Johansson and Ryan Reynolds announced their split, she and Penn “began seeing each other.”
“Their first hookup was in Scarlett’s bungalow” at the Chateau Marmont hotel in L.A. on January 4, says a so-called “insider” for the mag.
More recently, claims Us Weekly, they had a “secret sexy fling” after the two attended a party for Black Swan at the Sunset Tower Hotel in L.A. on February 5.
The celebrity weekly reports the two were spotted outside the hotel smoking cigarettes, and then went back inside the party. While Penn was talking to a group of people at the event, Johansson “pretended she didn’t notice, batting her eyelashes while chatting with other partygoers.”
Penn then left the party and “five minutes later, Johansson did the same,” as part of an elaborate ruse to throw off “their status as a couple,” says a breathless Us Weekly.
A mag “source” concludes, “She’s smitten with him.”
OK, let’s look at this objectively. Johansson didn’t look at Penn when he was talking to people at the Black Swan party, and then they left separately five minutes apart.
Clearly, Johansson’s “smitten” and they’re having a “sexy secret fling.”
Actually, the two are friends, who both have an interest in Haiti’s plight, and that’s what they talked about over smokes outside.
A rep for Johansson dismissed the Us Weekly story that they’re “undercover lovers” by saying, “There is no truth to this at all.”
