Scarlett Johansson has reportedly ended her whirlwind romance with Sean Penn after only four months. Scarlett, 26 and Sean, 50 quickly turned heads early this year when the two were spotted enjoying a meal in Los Angeles with Scarlett’s leg playfully set on Sean Penn’s lap. Days later the two were spotted in Cabo San Lucas. To further fuel the speculation of the unusual couple Scarlett and Sean turned up together at Reese Witherspoon’s wedding in March. After all the public sightings neither Sean nor Scarlett commented on the status of their relationship.
The intensity around Scarlett and Sean’s relationship reached a peak when rumors caught fire that Scarlett may be pregnant. The actress was spotted jogging with her beau Sean with what appeared to be a small tummy bulge. It was the only time that her publicist made a comment stating that the photos were “misleading”.
Scarlett and Sean were again spotted at the White House Correspondent dinner and after party. But alas the fast pace relationship that also speculated Scarlett moved in with Sean did not last.
People magazine reports that Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn have called it quits. According to People, Scarlett was a no show at Cannes with Sean as he promoted his new film “The Tree of Life”. Scarlett has reportedly been working on “The Avengers” in New Mexico – which seems like a plausible excuse to be missing in action. But the bigger problem came when Sean was spotted getting cozy with young women other than Scarlett – we’re guessing the newly divorced Scarlett wasn’t very happy about that.
