Their romance speculation was fueled after a picture was taken when they were enjoying a cozy lunch date in Los Angeles on Monday, February 28.
Hollywood stars Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson have fueled reports of a budding romance after enjoying a cozy lunch date together in Los Angeles on Monday, February 28 . The actor, 50, finalized his divorce from his wife Robin Wright Penn last year, while "Lost In Translation" beauty Johansson split from husband Ryan Reynolds in December 2010.
Speculation that Penn and Johansson were dating emerged in January, prompting firm denials from the 26-year-old actress' representatives. But new photos of the rumored couple, obtained by TMZ.com, seem to suggest they're more than just friends - the blonde beauty is caught resting her foot in Penn's lap while dining at Cuban restaurant Versailles in the shots.
According to TMZ, the two were smiling and laughing throughout the meal, which Johansson reportedly paid for.
