Reese Witherspoon may have tied the knot over the weekend, but it wasn’t her “I dos” or her wedding gown that stole the spotlight. Scarlett Johansson is making news of her own by attending Witherspoon’s nuptials to Hollywood agent Jim Toth with Sean Penn as her plus one. The couple was rumored to have gone on a romantic getaway a few weeks back to Mexico but now it seems things have gotten a little more serious with them. Actually, when ScarJo was photographed with her foot in Penn’s lap, things became a little more clear, but that’s neither here nor there.
Scarlett and Sean had been rumored to be dating for awhile now, but going to the wedding on Saturday together the two made it official. According to Hollywood etiquette showing up together at an A-list wedding together is a huge step. Scarlett – who announced her separation from husband Ryan Reynolds last year after two years of marriage – is allegedly completely smitten with Sean and wants everyone to know they are dating.
“Scarlett is Jim’s client, but no one, including the bride, knew she would have turned up with Sean Penn,” a friend of Scarlett’s tells me. “Turning up at a wedding with your boyfriend is definitely a huge statement, especially that wedding. What it’s doing is announcing to the whole of Hollywood that they are serious.”
Their reps are keeping remarkably quiet about the alleged lovers relationship but rumors say they’re due to visit Haiti together sometime in the spring where Sean has been actively involved in relief assistance following the earthquake in 2010. Sean is super talented, but I wouldn’t call him sexy. He’s decent looking, but I think I just can’t seem to get the image of him playing Spicoli in ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High‘ out of my head. Clearly the 24-year age difference doesn’t faze them and they appear to be genuinely happy together, but how do you go from Ryan Reynolds to Sean Penn?!
