Scarlett Johansson & Sean Penn’s Mexican Getaway: Is it Romance or Just Sex?
So, Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn are boning. It’s official now. Us Weekly reported it about four weeks ago, much to the dismay of ScarJo’s rep, who issued a denial to Gossip Cop (reps lie, how shocking). Then on Tuesday, TMZ got their hands on a photo of Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn eating lunch together - with ScarJo’s foot on Sean Penn’s dong.
Okay, maybe that was too graphic, but it wasn’t like she had her foot on his knee, it was definitely in the crotch area (swimsuit area?). Now People Magazine (for goodness sake) reports that Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn have jetted off to Mexico - they have taken their love (of screwing) to Cabo.
It was a short getaway, but Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson made the most of it.
The pair left on a private jet from Van Nuys airport Tuesday morning, then were spotted having dinner in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, that night, according to sources. Early Wednesday morning, they returned to Los Angeles where Johansson is shooting the film We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon.
On the menu during their Mexican meal? Penn, 50 and Scarlett Johansson, 26, reportedly enjoyed lobster and, of course, margaritas.
Earlier this week, the twosome were seen sharing a casual lunch at the popular Los Angeles Cuban restaurant, Versailles, where Johansson had her leg draped over Penn.
On Feb. 5, the couple raised eyebrows when they stayed unusually close to each other at a party celebrating Black Swan at the L.A. hotspot Sunset Tower Hotel, then reportedly left together. “They were flirting with each other all night, pretty much ignoring everyone else,” a source told PEOPLE at the time.

Neither of their reps have commented on the pair’s most recent sightings.
Johansson and Ryan Reynolds, 34, split in December after two years of marriage. In August of 2009, Robin Wright, 44, filed for divorce from Penn. The couple had been married 13 years.
Wait, so the trip to Mexico wasn’t even a 24-hour thing? That’s so weird. Sean Penn probably needed to make a “quick stop” in Tijuana to see a man about a goat (“goat” being “a brick of cocaine”). This whole thing is so bizarre, it really is. If it was just about screwing, I would understand it, you know?
Sean Penn seems like the kind of guy who would be good in bed (and a douchebag everywhere else), and I could see how a 25-year-old woman would think “Yeah, I need to get laid properly by a dude who knows what he’s doing.” But this Scarlett Johansson-Sean Penn thing just feels like… she’s gotten emotional about it. Like, it’s an actual romance and not just a sex thing. Ugh.
