Scarlett Johansson’s new boyfriend is a French ‘urban art’-scene hipster

In yesterday’s post about the NYC premiere of Hitchcock, I mentioned that Page Six was spreading a rumor about Scarlett Johansson having a new French-y boyfriend. At the time that I wrote the post, the mystery dude had not been identified. Thankfully, Page Six got on it and they found out the dude’s name: Romain Dauriac. He IS French. And he’s a “former editor” of a “French urban art magazine.” Because of course. That is exactly the kind of dude ScarJo goes for. Apparently, Scar and Romain were hanging out together when she was in France earlier this month – remember her stupid “Lucky You” tattoo? Yeah, the tattoo was done by a mutual friend of both Scarlett and Romain. Here’s more:

Looks like we’ve found Scarlett Johansson’s “lucky” new guy.

French journalist Romain Dauriac has been revealed to be ScarJo’s new boyfriend. Dauriac is the former editor of French urban art magazine Clark, and is the current manager of a creative agency.

The couple are friends of French tattoo artist Fuzi Uvtpk, who recently inked the actress with a horseshoe tattoo inscribed with “Lucky You” on her rib cage. Dauriac reportedly has a Uvtpk tat that reads “Lost Illusions.”

Page Six revealed today that the blonde beauty was looking cozy with a dark-haired man who spoke French Thursday night. The two snuggled up during a dinner date at the Beatrice Inn, looking “lovey-dovey and holding hands under the table all night,” says a witness. “They were holding each other while outside smoking in the cold.” We’re told that Johansson’s new guy was “dark-haired and slightly taller than her but skinny” and that “he may have been speaking French at one point.”

Before Dauriac, the “Hitchcock” actress was dating ad exec Nate Naylor for the past year.

Well… ScarJo exasperates me, but I think I might prefer this mess to what her ex-husband did. Ryan Reynolds went from Scarlett to an underwear model to Blake Lively and then ended up engaged and married, like, within a year. I want to think Scarlett is just returning to her man-hungry, boy-crazy roots – because Scarlett was ALWAYS a man-eater. She just tried to pretend she was just a down-home girl who wanted to get married. So… at least she’s owning it, I guess. I can’t imagine that she’s gone into this relationship thinking, “Yes, I want to marry this French hipster!”

    Just sounds like the 180 rebound she always does. Still trying to figure out who she is via various penises belonging to various types of dudes.

  2. marie says:

    of course he is.. she wants so much to be taken seriously-but falls short so I think she tries to find that through her bfs (as of late anyway)

  3. KellyinSeattle says:

    I guess Justin Theroux was already taken.

    When one is hungry, everything tastes good.

    i love her. so what if she likes different types of men. she’s having fun. at least she doesn’t cheat, do drugs, drink, have babies form every guy, or lose herself in her men. she’s on broadway! going to see the play! can’t wait. but i am not a fan of this look she wore at the premiere.

  6. Darlene says:

    I read somewhere he’s married with a pregnant wife! I’ll try to find the source…

  7. Shitler says:

    He looks dirty. Yuck. I feel like she dates all these men to give herself some semblance of depth

  8. INeedANap says:

    She keeps dating these hipster artsy dudes — Sean Penn, that ad exec, this guy…methinks she is trying to be “cool” and “edgy” by proxy. She has always seemed like the kind of girl who thinks she has more cred than she really does, so I feel like she keeps dating these kinds of guys mostly for image.

  9. Sharon says:

    In first place she looks beautiful in the premier.

    Second, she looks like she can`t be with a man in her life-

    Third, She has not very good taste in men.

    But I love her in every single way and i can’t wait for the film

  10. Incredulous says:

    Fuzi Uvtpk is an actual name? It reads like the letters you pick out playing scrabble.

  11. wanderlust says:

    this is a relief. I was praying that it was not Gaspard.

  12. Keesa says:

    When I read the heading I instantly thought “she dates all these edgy artsy guys to seem cool” and it seems I’m not alone.
    She’s gone by the roster.

    All that’s left for her, is James Franco. He ‘seems’ aartsy and edgy and cool and deep and smart and all round awesome…. Just her type!

    Oh wait, they can’t date, they are the male and female versions of one another, and such a relationship cannot exist, because they need to date someone who is 100% in that realm to validate themselves.

  13. wonderwoman21 says:

    She’s such a wannabe lmao

  14. Izzy says:

    French dude looks like Perez Hilton. And I don’t mean that as a compliment. But hey, he’s smart, right? So maybe he’ll finally teach ScarJo the difference between “ambiguous” and “ambivalent.” (Confused? Google for video footage of ScarJo, Renner and Hiddles doing a red carpet interview together. It’s somewhere out there. And it exposes her for the wanna-be intellectual she really is.)

  15. Kosmos says:

    I’m definitely not a fan of hers, but she should be able to date anyone she likes. The dress is horrid on her, and those shoes, too. Basically, I have never liked her body, but if she wears the right thing, she can look fairly good. She does have a pretty face, but that’s about it, sorry, meh.
