Why Scarlett Johansson And Sean Penn Split

It was one of Hollywood’s strangest hook-ups – so what was the real reason behind Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn’s split?

Apparently 50 year-old Sean “didn’t want anything serious” with Scarlett, 26. The couple dated for five months, fresh from Scarlett’s divorce from husband of two years, Ryan Reynolds and Sean’s divorce from Robin Wright.

Despite the recent break-up the pair were spotted at the Spike TV Awards in LA looking pretty chummy. However partygoers say Scarlett pursued Sean at the party, making sure they were photographed together.

“A photographer asked for a shot,” said a source. “Before Sean could say no, she said yes.”

Despite attending the White House Correspondents’ dinner together last month, Scarlett was notably absent from the Cannes Film Festival premiere of Sean’s latest film, the award-winning The Tree Of Life, fuelling speculation of a rift.

The Lost In Translation actress is rumoured to have chased Sean following his split from his ex-wife last July, even though he wasn’t looking for a relationship.

Do you think Scarlett and Sean made a good couple?
