Hollywood stars Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson have fuelled reports of a budding romance after enjoying a cosy lunch date together in Los Angeles on Monday (28Feb11).
The actor, 50, finalised his divorce from his wife Robin Wright Penn last year (10), while Lost In Translation beauty Johansson split from husband Ryan Reynolds in December (10).
Speculation that Penn and Johansson were dating emerged in January (11), prompting firm denials from the 26-year-old actress' representatives.
But new photos of the rumoured couple, obtained by Tmz.com, seem to suggest they're more than just friends - the blonde beauty is caught resting her foot in Penn's lap while dining at Cuban restaurant Versailles in the shots.
