At first, the rumors about a romance between Scarlett Johan
sson and Sean Penn seemed like just that: rumors. Johansson and husband Ryan Reynolds had only recently filed filed for divorce when outlets such as Us magazine started reporting in February that the star of “Lost in Translation” and the Oscar-winning former husband of Robin Wright were an item.
But their appearance together at Reese Witherspoon’s recent wedding made their “in a relationship” status more publicly official. And now Us — apparently America’s No. 1 tracker of all rumors pertaining to ScarJo, 26, and Penn, 50 — is reporting that the two may have taken things to another level by moving in together.
Of course, the source for said information is someone defined as “an insider.” And Johansson is apparently spending a lot of time under Penn’s roof after residing temporarily at a West Hollywood hotel. So this arrangement could be temporary as well.
But between this and the rumors that swiftly circulated yesterday about Johansson possibly being pregnant — her rep quickly shot down that one as false — it’s clear that Johansson and Penn are now, officially, the gossip-driving couple of the moment.
And that means it’s officially time for you, the Celebritology audience, to assess the union between Black Widow and Jeff Spicoli. Is it an ideal match between two respected actors, or weird in an Angelina Jolie/Billy Bob Thornton kind of way? Vote in our poll and weigh in.
