Scarlett Johansson & Sean Penn are probably boning


I read a version of this story yesterday on Jezebel’s tabloid round-up, but it barely registered because it sounded more like Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn had merely had a conversation at a party, and Us Weekly was trying to make that conversation into a full-blown affair. But Us Weekly just released their online version of the ScarJo/Sean hookup, and it does sound more compelling than I realized. After all, ScarJo likes an older man (Benicio del Toro and the elevator), and God knows that she’s probably the #1 Hot Bachelorette these days, so she can have her pick of the litter. I think that’s where she found Sean too – the litter pan.

That was fast. Just weeks after announcing her split with hubby Ryan Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson, 26, has a new leading man in her life — Academy-Award winning actor Sean Penn, 50!

A source tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands now) that the duo began their fling in early January when she was staying at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont while filming We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon.

“Their first hook-up was in Scarlett’s Bungalow,” says the insider.

Nearly twice her age, the Milk star might seem an odd choice for Johansson, but the source points out that a common cause brought them together.

“Scarlett first reached to Sean when she was planning to visit Haiti with Oxfam,” says the source. “She knew Sean was living their in a tent and turned to him for advice.”

While the actress didn’t end up going on the trip, she did develop feelings for Penn (who split from wife Robin Wright after 14 years of marriage last August).

“Scarlett’s smitten with him,” the insider says.

For more on Johansson and Penn’s budding romance — including details on how they fooled partygoers at L.A.’s Sunset Tower Hotel in February — pick up the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands now!

Yeah, I doubt ScarJo is “smitten”. Girl probably just wants to get laid, well and often. Sean’s good for a fling, I guess, although I think he’s still technically dating some model chick. But, whatever. It’s not like Sean has a reputation for being faithful. And ScarJo… well, Sean is probably a better pick than some of her other rebound hookup choices. I’d like to see her with someone really fun, though. God knows Sean isn’t Mr. Fun Times.

    Ewwwwwwww! Just Ewwwwwwwww!

  2. mln76 says:

    Gross, Sean Penn just isn’t a good egg.

  3. brin says:

    I don’t get his appeal at all. There’s also a story of him hooking up with Charlize Theron.

  4. Rita says:

    “so she can have her pick of the litter. I think that’s where she found Sean too – the litter pan.”

    I understand women who are not into recycling (can be such a mess) but please don’t litter.

  5. Darlene says:

    You in danger, girl. He crazy.

  6. Motor35 says:

    didn’t he beat on madonna?
    if so, did he also beat up robin?

  7. Marjalane says:

    Can you imagine going from looking over at Ryan Reynolds in bed, (Hey! I think he’s cute!) to looking over at that old cruster, Sean Penn?! I am shuddering.

  8. gabs says:

    Didnt he also hook up with Natalie portman once? Oh scarlett. Well at least she is more Kate Hudson and not a Cameron Diaz.

  9. guesty says:

    that trojan vibrator do! ha. completely believe they’re doing it. thought I read somewhere awhile back that it was over with to’s ex & sean penn…idk tho.

  10. Jane says:

    She sure has a thing for douchebags, huh?

  11. Caitlin says:

    Ugh, not Sean Penn, possibly the biggest douche in all of Hollywood. I don’t care HOW badly she may need to get laid…BAD, bad decision.

  12. Quest says:

    Is she a clothes-peg for any douche-bag that comes a knocking?


  13. tango says:

    Well. From one douchbag to another. Though douchebags are many times pretty good in bed. So maybe that’s the appeal. She just closes her eyes.

  14. Henriette says:

    Dislike Scarjo. Hate Sean. They’re perfect for each other… at least for some skanky drunken (he’s an alcoholic) sex.

  15. brin says:

    Guess Scarjo just has a thing for gerbils and weasels.

  16. Rita says:


    OMG, please say it ain’t so about Penn and Theron. She’s so incredibly beautiful and talented. Someone get her a movie role that’s deserving of her, pleasssse.

  17. Isabel says:

    Ewie! I don’t like that at all!

  18. brin says:

    @Rita….I read it somewhere online, I’ll look back to find out where. Let’s hope it’s not true.

  19. OtherChris says:

    She’s pretentious enough that this makes sense. I just hope they don’t breed, because they will create the most pretentious baby every who will come out of the womb dressed in black and holding a book of 19th century German poetry.

  20. Micaela says:

    US just wants to sell more mags tomorrow when their magazines come out.

    What a rediculous story. Johansson is with Ryan Reynolds where she belongs!

    What sensible woman would leave Ryan for
    tht old man?

  21. knitter says:

    Sure, Sean Penn isn’t perfect. No one is. But at least he passionately cares about the big issues in life, such as making the world a better place for everyone, and he does his best to act on that. He’s certainly a lot more interesting and attractive than most other people in Hollywood.

  22. Sunnyjyl says:

    I am so judging this. Ewwww…

  23. beth says:

    dude scares me. probably still good for a few f*cks, tho.

  24. Micaela says:

    What a coincedence, Ryan Reynolds and
    Scarjo staying in the same hotel!

  25. brin says:

    @Rita…finally found it…it’s in the National Enquirer so chances are good it’s not true, but suposedly they were all over each other at the Chateau Marmont (wonder if Lindsay stopped by after court!).

  26. jenniferb says:

    Look, he may be a douch, but he’s totally intense. I can see how that might translate into a very hot, no conversation boning.

  27. lio says:

    Hot couple! (yeah, I know: I’m apparently the only one to think this 😉

  28. Embee says:

    I’m scared for her.

  29. Rita says:


    I love you gals who are like a dog with a play towel. You ain’t going to let it go until you get it right. Thanks!!!

  30. brin says:

    @Rita….hey, I just wanted to make sure I didn’t imagine it (ugh), hope I didn’t spoil your day!

  31. Maritza says:

    He is such a downgrade for her, I don’t believe there is anything between her and Sean Penn. I bet they were talking about making a movie together.

  32. DGO says:

    Oh Scarlett, NO!!!!

  33. Rita says:


    You never spoil my day and only add to the pleasure of living it.

  34. Anti-icon says:

    Gross. If any woman actually shows him the time of day (or more) at this point, it is because Penn still has massive movie-making power in Hollywood. That has got to be it. No other reason I can even entertain without getting nausea.

  35. brin says:

    @Rita….Awww…back at ya, gf!

  36. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    are you freaking fracking kiddin me?

    He must be hung, cause damn, I dont see it.

  37. JenJen says:

    She called him for advice about sleeping in a tent in a devastated third world country but decided to pass, uh-huh. Perfect come-on for a perfect A-hole.

  38. futureperfect says:

    simply meh…

  39. The Bobster says:

    She’s banging Spiccoli? Ewwwww, just ewwww.

    I mean he’s so old…and ugly…and nasty…

  40. Venus says:

    Disgusting (if true). Regardless of whether he is a d-bag or not (I lean toward he is), Sean Penn is old enough to be her father — she’s young (and probably stupid) so her going with him I can forgive, but he should be ashamed of himself.

  41. Micaela says:

    US Weekly sucks if they have to resort to smearing people’s reputations to sell their magazines.

    Give the couple a break, he loves her and she loves him. Their love for each other will withstand the test of time.

    Even if they divorce, if they really love each, their love will survive.

    Is there a fan club that supports both of them?

  42. Angel says:

    Don’t like her. But good match 😉

  43. Chris says:

    Does this give hope to 50 year old men all over the world?

  44. PrettyLights says:

    Oh ScarJo, you’re so young and gorgeous, go find a hot young thing and show him how it’s done… I have no opinion on Sean Penn personally but if I were in her position I’d be out finding the hottest guys I could, no offense to anyone in the 50 year old range…he just doesn’t do it for me and she has the pick of the litter.

  45. Micaela says:

    PrettyLights, I think that she is not looking because she already has what she wants with Ryan Reynolds. He has not been seen with anyone else, either.

    I have nothing against Penn. He is just not her type. Johansson likes good looking guys with good bodies. She had that with the guy she went with before Reynolds….

    The story was not believable.

  46. jzhz says:


    He just seems like like a bowl of sad with some anger sprinkled on top.

  47. jen says:

    What the HELL did she do to her hair? It looks like she drenched it in Aqua Net while in a wind tunnel.

  48. crazydaisy says:

    @ OtherChris – very funny image of their baby!

    I have to say I can see these two together. Although Sean is pretty wrinkly at this point, he has that edge that Scarlett seems to share. Too bad SP’s not ten years younger. They might have a real chance at something.

    Kid Scarlett might enjoy a fling w the old Pennster, but I doubt she’s ready to give up the touch of taut, young skin forever. Which means if he’s not careful, Sean could be headed for heartbreak!

    On the other hand, maybe this whole story is a crock.

  49. sweetzy says:

    whats wrong with her?? wanna be like catherine zeta jones?

  50. Micaela says:

    Crazy Daisy,

    the whole story is a CROCK!
