AceShowbiz - Amid her alleged romance with "Saturday Night Live" star Colin Jost, Scarlett Johansson was spotted stepping out with Bobby Flay. The actress was snapped having a dinner with the chef in New York City over the weekend.
In some photos obtained by Daily Mail, the 32-year-old actress was pictured leaving a restaurant with the 52-year-old celebrity chef. The pair looked cheerful as the "Ghost in the Shell" star sported a smile during the night out.
Both were clad in casual outfits, with Scarlett donning a creme jacket over a striped shirt and a pair of boyfriend jeans. She completed her laid-back look with a black belt, white sneakers and a mini black backpack, which she held in one hand. Meanwhile, the Food Network star opted for a black top and jeans, which he paired with leather boots.
The news came after Scarlett was said to be dating Colin for months. However, a source told Page Six that Colin seemingly had nothing to worry about since it was just a friendly dinner. "Simply put, they are friends as well as neighbors [in the Hamptons]," said a Scarlett rep.
Scarlett and Colin were indeed "going strong" with their romance as they made first public appearance at a "SNL" after-party following the show's season 43 premiere late September. "They are still getting to know each other, but she is really into him and it's getting more on the exclusive level," a source said of the couple.
The lovebirds were seen kissing in the rain while dancing to the performance of Diana Ross during a Hamptons party over Labor Day weekend. According to witnesses, the couple romantically "kissed outside and didn't care that it was raining."
The lovebirds first sparked dating rumors after they were spotted "making out at the bar" during "SNL" wrap party at the ice rink at Rockefeller Center back in May. "They would make out a bit, then go back to talking. They were at the bar in front of everyone... they made out at least twice... Then they went back to talking and hanging with other people," said a source.
