Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn split

Scarlett Johansson, 26, and Sean Penn, 50, have broken up. There was no immediate reason given for the split, though it was rumored as early as April that the relationship was winding down, with Scarlett sick of Penn’s controlling ways. When Penn attended the Cannes Film Festival to promote his new film, The Tree of Life, last month without Scarlett on his arm, speculation began to circulate that the affair was over. Scarlett turned to Penn immediately following the breakup of her marriage to Ryan Reynolds last December. For his part, Penn split from his wife of 14 years, Robin Wright, last year. He has a daughter, 20 and a son, 18 from his marriage.

    True love can die apparently. 🙂 She had it all with Ryan Reynolds… She be dumb.

    Christie gets me. lol FINALLY a smart girl. I am just waiting for obvious Jo-Anne to chime in. “Umm Jeff they weren’t going to last”.

    Scar-Jo is exactly what is wrong with MANY but not all women today. They have something good, then they throw it away because their daddy didn’t lvoe them, some boy in 7th grade broke their heart, or Oprah told them to always be trading up. Unlike the movies she will not realize that there is nothing wrong with somebody who treats you right. SHe wants the bad boy for the challenge. She wants the drama, the fights, the idea of trying to tame the untameable. YIKES.

    If these two can’t make it, there’s no hope for anyone else 🙁

    Don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone, right Scar-Jo?

    7’s end up with 7’s, 8’s with 8’s so on and so on. There are only two major reasons why 5’s end up with 9’s, money and performance in the sack. Seeing as Sean Penn couldn’t nail down his old marriage I’m ruling out the second option and seeing as Sar-Jo is the 9 and they are both wealthy it was shocking they were ever an item to begin with.

    im not surprised.

    An attractive young impressionable woman hooking up with an aging screen legend??? This phenomenon continues to baffle the clueless. She can do without him as she has her own money/fame. He can snag another 20 yr old beauty with a snap of his finger. The world keeps on spinnin’.

    “Unlike the movies she will not realize that there is nothing wrong with somebody who treats you right. SHe wants the bad boy for the challenge. She wants the drama, the fights, the idea of trying to tame the untameable.”

    How do you know that Ryan Reynolds treated her right? And how do you know that she wants the ‘bad boy?’

    Aren’t you assuming a lot?

    obvious Jo-Anne here…

    JEFF’s opinion is exactly what is wrong with MANY but not all men today…
    they think they know what women want…

  12. TheTruth • June 4, 2011 @ 12:49 PM

    I think this was just a rebound relationship for SJ, possibly even trying to make RR jealous. After all, RR is the playa ending one “marriage” with AM and filing for this divorce first.

    IMHO there’s a difference with what women really want, and what they say they want. The truth is it’s a bit of both.

  13. Irony • June 4, 2011 @ 3:52 PM

    Jo-Anne, we do know what women want. Mel Gibson made a movie about it for us.

  14. jeff • June 5, 2011 @ 12:53 AM

    Jo-Anne is what’s wrong with many women out there. Probably why men cheat. lol

  15. Jo-Anne • June 5, 2011 @ 6:40 PM

    haha Irony!
    Jeff is what Jo-Anne rejected repeatedly years ago…ool

  16. jeff • June 5, 2011 @ 9:33 PM

    LOL I didn’t know lesbians could date males? I thought they liked otherwomen.

  17. Shug • June 6, 2011 @ 11:29 AM

    LMAO! As many mature people have said before. What does a 50 year old have in common with a twenty-something year old (other than their careers and divorces) Sean Penn tho?? He’s had some really beauties, but that pesky control issue keeps coming up…hmm!

  18. Jo-Anne • June 6, 2011 @ 5:30 PM

    “I didnt know lesbians could date males?”

    do they turn into pumpkins if they do?

  19. C-Dub • June 6, 2011 @ 8:39 PM

    No jo-Anne but it doesn’t exactly make them lesbians. No they enter the ‘bi’ area. Education continues. Jeff and Jo-Anne are why I look at this site ha ha. Love it.
