Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has been spotted smooching with a gorgeous girl pal.

The LOST IN TRANSLATION star, 19, was seen locking lips with blonde fashion designer Tara Subkoff at New York's trendy HIRO bar.

An onlooker explains, "Tara took Scarlett to a dark corner of the bar, where she proceeded to administer a very long and lingering kiss.

"People who saw it were shocked.

"Then she did it again. Maybe she thinks Scarlett's hot."

Johansson - currently dating actor PATRICK WILSON - is in the Big Apple filming blockbuster SYNERGY with Dennis Quaid.

Subkoff is the girlfriend of The Royal Tenenbaums director Wes Anderson."
