This morning, Page Six has an interesting little advance article from Life & Style and now L&S has released the full piece to us. Sources claim that soon after Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson’s divorce was finalized, they went out to dinner and ScarJo seemed like she was ready and willing to “give it another go”. Sort of. She was extra flirty!
Six months after their marriage fell apart, Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson were spotted together at an intimate dinner in LA on July 9, Life & Style has exclusively learned.
The two exes dined at Little Dom’s in the Loz Feliz section of LA. The duo arrived together and sat at a secluded booth in the back of the room, a fellow diner tells Life & Style.
“Scarlett was being very flirty with him, staring into his eyes and listening very intently to everything he was saying,” says the eyewitness. “The way Ryan looked at her, you could tell he still has feelings for her.”
While the couple’s marriage officially ended on July 1, it seems they haven’t closed the book on their relationship just yet. Scarlett quickly moved on with a much older Sean Penn, but the pair called it quits in June.
On their July 9 date, “Scarlett kept pinching Ryan’s cheeks and caressing his face and while they were chatting, Ryan would rub her back periodically,” the eyewitness adds. “Something’s definitely up.”

Ugh. My take on this story is that it probably did go down, maybe a little less touchy-feely, but something like this went down. I think ScarJo was just doing that thing that some girls do – she was making sure that some dude still wants her, even though she threw him over. I think Scarlett got thrown over herself by Sean Penn, and she’s flailing around, trying to act like it wasn’t a huge hit to her ego. That’s how I take it – she’s making herself feel better by making sure she could still have her ex.
Meanwhile, Us Weekly claims that Ryan has a new girlfriend. The woman? CHARLIZE!! Ol’ Rose Boobs Theron is getting on Ryan Reynolds? Bizarre.
All year long, Hollywood watchers have wondered which starlet would snag newly single Ryan Reynolds. Mystery solved!
A source tells the new issue of Us Weekly (out Wednesday) that the Green Lantern star, 34, and Charlize Theron, 35, “have been dating — for months! They’re exclusive, and it’s very hush-hush.”
While the two haven’t been photographed together, a witness noticed Reynolds’ motorcycle at Theron’s home all morning on June 5, then saw the actor exit her house around 3 p.m. — and she left just minutes later.
Has Reynolds (who split from wife Scarlett Johansson last December) found a perfect match?
“They’re both career-focused,” explains the source, “but not in a crazy way.”
For instance, don’t expect to see the stars side-by-side on a red carpet. “She won’t go to an event with him,” the insider says of Theron, who split with love of nine years Stuart Townsend in 2010. “That’s not her style.”
Meanwhile, Reynolds hasn’t completely shut off contact with famous ex Johansson, 26. He and the Iron Man 2 actress were spotted having a cordial dinner last Friday at Little Dom’s in L.A., an observer confirms to Us.

While I kind of like Charlize for her ice-queen persona (she held with it after Nicole Kidman abandoned hers), I think she might be kind of a pill in her personal life, and I’m pretty sure Ryan is as well. Is this a case of two surly personality-types finding true love? Or is it just a hookup situation, nothing serious?
UPDATE: So, I know Lainey said Ryan was in Canada when the alleged ScarJo date went down, but L&S, People Magazine and Us Weekly are all saying it took place, and that there was some touching. The magazines are getting “leaks” from someone’s publicist, so something went down.
