Scarlett Johansson and her new boo Sean Penn appeared to go public with their rumored relationship this past Saturday night (Apr 30) as they were photographed holding hands after attending White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, D.C.

The 26-year-old actress, who recently split from husband Ryan Reynolds last year, has been linked to  the 50-year-old Penn ever since the two were spotted enjoying what appeared to be a lunch date back in February.

A representative for Johannson brushed off the speculation by insisting, “Scarlett and Sean are not dating – they have been friends for years,” but the statement failed to silence gossip about the alleged romance.

Johansson and Penn have now confirmed the rumors that the two are in fact a couple after they were photographed holding hands following the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C.

Don’t know how he did it, but Sean just scored one of the HOTTEST acts in Hollywood! He better keep that Viagra close by, because he’s sure as hell is going to need it.
