Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson appear not to be concerned about what the media makes of their time together after taking off on a day-long vacation to Mexico.
The couple's publicists have denied reports of a romance, but the story refuses to die because they keep being spotted together.
Johansson, who split from husband Ryan Reynolds in December (10), was photographed resting her foot affectionately on Penn's lap during a lunch date in Los Angeles on Monday (28Feb11), and now the two stars have been spotted holidaying together in Mexico.
According to, the pair left on a private jet from Van Nuys airport on Tuesday morning (01Mar11) and were spotted dining in Cabo San Lucas later that night.
The break appears to have lasted just a day for Johansson, who was back on the set of new film We Bought a Zoo on Wednesday (02Mar11).
