Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn were spotted holding hands when they attended the White House Correspondents Dinner after-party on Saturday evening (30th April 2011). Scarlett Johansson has been rumoured to be dating the Oscar winning Hollywood actor and the pair were spotted getting close to each other at the exclusive bash, reports People Magazine.
Speculation surrounding the couple's relationship first arose after they were photographed having lunch together in Los Angeles at the beginning of March. A trip to Mexico followed shortly after, but Johansson's spokesperson played down the vacation. The couple were then spotted together at Reese Witherspoon's wedding ceremony but representatives were again on hand to deny rumours of a romance. However, the couple stepped out together at the Vanity Fair/Bloomberg bash in Washington on Saturday night and were spotted "hand holding" outside the party. They reportedly left the event together at 2.30am. Recent reports have suggested that the couple are now living together in the actor's Malibu home, following Johansson's split from husband Ryan Reynolds.
Scarlett Johansson and Penn were joined by the likes of Arianna Huffington, Sean Penn, Amy Poehler and Michael Bloomberg at the star-studded bash.
