Rumors of a fling between Sean Penn (50) and Scarlett Johansson (26) have been flying around the celebrity world and the Internet since January. Now, we at Celebrity News and Style have seen clear photographic evidence that Scarlet is more than a little keen on Sean, or at least that her foot is very comfortable in his lap! The pair was photographed having a cozy lunch in Cuban restaurant, Versailles, in Los Angeles, this Monday.
The pair smiled and laughed throughout the meal and appeared very happy. However, either Scarlett is a thoroughly modern woman or Sean is no gentleman: sources inside the restaurant say that Scarlett paid for the whole meal.
Despite the age difference (let’s face it, Sean is easily old enough to be Scarlett’s father) she is said to be “smitten with him”. She spent the lunch date with her foot in his lap!
The couple do have interests in common, though, such as relief for victims of the Haiti earthquake, and Scarlett first contacted Sean for help in arranging a visit to the scene of the natural disaster. Both of them also have been through divorce proceedings in the last year, with Sean and ex-wife Robin Wright-Penn finalizing their divorce last July and Scarlett and husband, Ryan Reynolds, filing for divorce last December.
“TMZ” broke the news of the cozy lunch date, and it was with a sense of irony that an ad for wrinkle cream was placed under the article. Scarlett, what are you doing!
