It’s hard to find an eligible award-winning actor who wants to settle down, folks. That’s the only reason we can imagine for Scarlett Johansson moving in with Sean Penn, which is what Us Magazine says just happened. Having failed to save her marriage to Sexiest Man (With A Movie To Promote) Alive Ryan Reynolds, ScarJo only spent a couple months as single woman before mags (like Us) started hooking her up with two-time Oscar winner Penn. Though she initially denied the affair, photos of them playing footsie and jogging together have trickled out since. And now they’re supposedly shacking up!
According to the magazine, the pair love “staying in” and hanging out with Sean’s two children—the oldest, 20-year-old Dylan, only six years younger than Scarlett (Sean, the scamp, is 50). Considering Penn went from Jeff Spicoli to credible dramatic actor in no time at all, while Reynolds will be lucky if he can go from Van Wilder to Green Lantern after a decade of unsuccessfully trying to show his range, there may be more logic to this pairing than initially obvious. We’re not going to bother explaining what Penn could be getting out of it. Plus there’s always true love.
