Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn spotted holding hands, report says
Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn were spotted holding hands on Wednesday, while dining at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, according to People magazine.
The two were seen drinking red wine and eating a salad (Johansson) and a burder (Penn) until 11 p.m., when they went to the valet with Penn's arm reportedly around his date's lower back.
Earlier in the month, Johansson and Penn were spotted on a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where they dined on lobster and margaritas.
Johansson, 26, and Penn, 50, have not commented on the reports but Johansson's spokesperson denied the two were dating in early February.
"Scarlett and Sean are not dating, they have been friends for years," Johansson's representation told E! Online. "Nothing more, nothing less. They have been talking over the last few months regarding Haiti Relief and Scarlett's upcoming trip to Haiti as Oxfam's Global Ambassador."
Ryan Reynolds, Johansson's husband of two years, filed for divorce in December. The two were wed on Sept. 27, 2008 in Canada after dating for about a year. They have no children. Reynolds cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, according to the legal papers.
Wright first filed for divorce in December 2007 but later withdrew her petition in April 2008. She was back in court in April 2009 asking for legal separation, but the couple reconciled a month later. The actress sought divorce a second time last August citing irreconcilable differences. The two officially divorced on July 22.
It was the second marriage for Penn, 49, and Wright, 44. The couple has two children together, 19 year-old daughter Dylan, and 17 year-old son Hopper Jack. The divorce was finalized in Marin County, California.
Johansson is currently shooting "We Bought A Zoo" with Matt Damon in Los Angeles and is set to reprise her "Iron Man 2" role as the Black Widow and her alter-ego Natasha Romanoff in the spinoff film "The Avengers," set for release on May 4, 2012.
