Is a Scarlett Johansson & Josh Hartnett reunion happening?


I always forget that Josh Hartnett and Scarlett Johansson were a thing. Apparently, they dated for more than a year, circa 2006-ish. They met while filming The Black Dahlia, and while together, they were very low-key. Very few photo-ops, and they even made a point of not standing together while they promoted The Black Dahlia. Much like ScarJo and Ryan Reynolds made it a point to rarely be photographed together… and Gwyneth and Chris. When you put it in perspective, the whole “we’re so private” thing just seems like you’re already thinking ahead to the breakup. Anyway, ScarJo and Josh. She was young, he was tall, they were hot together. Some might even claim that Josh was Scarlett’s first love. And now there are rumors about them again:

It seemed like old times for newly single Scarlett Johansson and Josh Hartnett when they dined in the garden of the Chateau Marmont on Feb. 15. The pair, who split in 2006 after dating for more than a year, “were extremely cozy all night, practically on each other’s lap,” an eyewitness tells Star. “She even fed him bites from her plate.”

Notes an insider: “Josh was her first love.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Not to quote Paris Hilton, but that’s hot. I would be into this re-coupling. ScarJo & JoHart are much, much sexier than ScarJo and Ryan Reynolds, Justin Timberlake, or any other dude you want to put her with.

That being said, I think ScarJo is just in some kind of “I’ll literally screw anybody” phase of her post-split era. I doubt this is going to turn into any kind of lasting relationship. But you never know.

    She was awful in that movie, totally miscast. So was he. As a big James Ellroy fan I was appalled.

  2. Aria says:

    Love the idea of these two together again!

  3. Katie says:

    Wow, that is the worst picture of her ever.

    I really don’t care about either of these two. I’m kind of glad Scarlett and Ryan are over though just b/c I’ve liked him for years and I don’t think she can act so I didn’t like them together. Also he just seems so much more clever and funny than she is.

  4. Cheyenne says:

    @normades: I agree about her but not about him. I thought he was great in that movie.

  5. Happymom says:

    What’s the deal with him? He really fell off the map. I would assume she’d pick someone a bit more successful-but for a fling-maybe so.

  6. Maritza says:

    I’d prefer to see her with Benicio Del Toro, now that would be an interesting match.

  7. devilgirl says:

    That has got to be the most unflattering dress ever.

  8. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    I’ll do him! I love him…

    Scarjo, not so much

    I so totally agree with you!

  10. Fire says:

    LOVE that last picture – thanks Kaiser!!

  11. PrettyTarheel says:

    I’m with Martiza. Benecio Del Toro-They could have elevator romps all over LA.

  12. MNGIRL76 says:

    He is always around town! I live by the house he owns, he has come into our record store, & hangs out at Bryant Lake Bowl, and I still have yet to catch a glimpse of him! I guess he came in w/Scarjo. Reports are they are super down to earth & very nice. Who knows -that was awhile ago. My boyfriend said he wasn’t super tall (1st ? I asked!) But my boyfriend is 6’2 so…..
    I still think Harnett is pretty hot.

  13. MNGIRL76 says:

    But…WHY doesn’t he do something about those eyebrows! If that were my boyfriend I would Duck tape him to a chair or manicure them in his sleep! (after I spiked his PBR with sleeping pills! Apparently men r 2 big of babies 2 handle a little bit of twee-zing pain!)

  14. lacy says:

    Good-looking couple. What’s he been doing with himself?

  15. louise says:

    Why is Josh famous? In the early 2000′s he was huse but for the life of me I can’t think of any films he was in except Pearl Harbor. That’s only because it just came on tv.

  16. truthzbetta says:

    He’s reasonably hot. She’s overrated. Got nothing most chicks don’t have and missing a few things a star really needs. Great face and acting ability especially.

    I assume she works the casting couch that Dame Gwinnie is too talented for.

  17. launicaangelina says:

    liked him in 40 days and 40 nights

  18. Newbie says:

    I’ve never understood her hotness. But she seems like a really nice gal, albeit innocent. If they’re together right now, good for both of them. And yes, that dress cuts her off in all the wrong places.

  19. Stephanie says:

    The only movie I can remember seeing him in was O, a modern remake of Othello. He played Iago.

  20. Scarlet Vixen says:

    I’m not a fan of hers (sorry, but I have a thing for Ryan Reynolds, Gerbil face that he is!). But I like the idea of these two getting back together! Mr Vixen & I dated years ago when we were young–22 & 23–broke up, then he found me years later. First time around we were too young, too busy with our careers, etc. But we were each the other’s “one that got away.” We’re now married with 2 awesome kids. :-D

  21. Amber says:

    I liked Josh in Lucky Number Slevin

  22. Mouse says:

    Never saw that movie, never even heard they were together actually but I wasn’t so big into reading gossip schtuff then.

  23. mindi says:


    ew he is way to old for her. she could do so much better than his wolf looking @ss.

  24. lisa says:

    Wow… people are so hard on Scarlett

    I can’t believe she ended up with boring stone face Ryan (ok that was hard).

    Never got them as a couple. Scarlett is a beautiful girl. She is super sexy in photos, but for some reason it always seems masked on films. I love her voice. and sad her marriage ended, but I never liked Ryan. I don’t find him sexy in the least.

    not sure who I would pair Scarlett up with. Ryan… I don’t care who he ends up with at all.. He is not on my radar.

  25. Micaela says:

    I loved Josh in Black Hawk Down. He is super sexy and very attractive. But,
    my favorite is Ryan Reynolds. It would
    not be a bad thing for Scarlett and Josh to hook up again if he were single.
    He is supposed to be married to a model.

  26. Rudypatudie says:

    Just curious, but has anyone heard of her NOT spreading for anyone? Seems like you don’t need a ticket for this ride. All free……anyone who wants one…….anytime…….come and get your ride…..
