Scarlett Johansson, Sean Penn on the rocks

Well, that didn’t last long. Since dumping gorgeous husband Ryan Reynolds, 34, (aka People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive“) last December, Scarlett Johansson, 26, decided to move on to the much older Sean Penn, 50, whose marriage to the beautiful Robin Wright ended in divorce last year. Apparently the two lovebirds have been fighting on the set of ScarJo’s latest movie, We Bought a Zoo, because Penn’s been behaving like a control freak. “Sean’s been coming to the set daily and watching Scarlett’s every move,” an insider told the Enquirer. “He scowls at any guy who talks to Scarlett or even looks at her unless it’s work-related, and he demands that people bend over backward to accommodate her. If Scarlett’s hungry, Sean orders a set assistant to get exactly what she wants from a local restaurant. If he notices a smudge on her skin or a problem with her wardrobe, he orders the makeup and costume people to fix it. It’s bizarre that he’s involved in such tiny details. Scarlett is a free spirit, and she was attracted to Sean for his bad boy reputation. She thought he’d be a fun rebound after her failed marriage, and she respects him as an actor and activist. But she wants superstar Sean, not someone who acts like her dad.” Scarlett and Sean were first seen together in February. “Scarlett first reached to Sean when she was planning to visit Haiti with Oxfam,” a source told Us Weekly magazine. “She knew Sean was living there in a tent and turned to him for advice.”

    No wonder he acts like her dad, he’s old enough to actually be him. I can’t believe she dumped beautiful Ryan and then starts hanging out with Sean (if we’re being honest, Penn is not easy on the eyes). Maybe she didn’t feel like anyone looked at her as long as she was with Ryan. I bet it was a blow to her self esteem, especially when he was voted sexiest man. Ryan’s better off without her, now he can find someone who will support his accomplishments instead of being jealous.

    Ohhhh so she’s one of those bitches that can’t decide what she wants! I hope she gets crabs.

    I never thought Scarlett would go for an old guy such as Sean Penn, he is freaking old!!! what do you get from an old guy anyway except jealousy. She is after all a Blonde girl and born this way ;)))

    Andrea, I am with you, she dumped the gorgeous hunk to be with Sean Penn. Scarjo is not too bright.

    I agree with you, that she was jealous of Ryan and was
    competing with him. Everytime, RR is on a tabloid in
    a positive way, she has to show herself up in the media even if it’s in a negative way. Like playing footsie in Sean’s crotch, sitting on his lap, gropping, etc. I still think she wants to make Ryan jealous. But, Ryan seemed very happy at ComicCon and at WondeCom. She wanted to be with Penn, she deserves whatever he dishes out. Dumb, Dumb!

    Oh really, where’s the news factor about anyone breaking up in Hollywood. How UN-news can you get!!!

    Doesn’t Penn have a daughter the same age as her? Dirty old man.

  10. MP • April 8, 2011 @ 12:21 AM

    what on earth is ScarJo even thinking? what is wrong with her?? well good for RR to have gotten away, it seems his career and image are both stable, not sure what HER deal is…

    If you want to date a bad boy, that’s what you get. No time to say more.

    Germain on April 7, 2011 7:49 AM thats rude, im sure if you were no longer in love with the man/woman you married you wouldnt stay just because you wanted to look good to the rest of the world. does anyone really have any reason to have negative comments about someone for leaving a marriage they are unhappy in?

    brenda on April 7, 2011 8:59 PM it didnt say they are actually IN a relationship, maybe he is treating her that way because he thinks of her as a child.

    i love ryan and i have never liked scarlett, i have no idea why. i think ryan should get back together with rachel mcadams.

    There is something wrong with that girl! She bounces from one guy to the next constantly. Let’s talk about Sean Penn! He is this political activist who see’s all these things wrong with the World as he lives his cush cush life..and then goes and dates a woman half his age!!! What could they possibly have in common except for one thing!! Sean Penn is a dirty old man and typical Hollywood scumbag $%#$^!!
