Scarlett Johansson 'smitten' with Sean Penn -- Us

By Liz Kelly

With apologies to all the guys who thought they might finally get a chance with Scarlett Johansson after the actress announced a split from husband Ryan Reynolds in December, I regret to inform you that Jeff Spicoli -- aka actor activist Sean Penn -- has already beaten you to the punch.

According to Us, Penn and Johansson met when she was staying at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont and bonded over a mutual desire to help Haitian earthquake victims and, doubtless, being fabulous.

"Scarlett first reached to Sean when she was planning to visit Haiti with Oxfam," said Us's source. "She knew Sean was living their [sic] in a tent and turned to him for advice."

While it's true that there's nothing quite as irresistable as a middle-aged tobacco-stained Jeff Spicoli living in a tent, we hope ScarJo is well aware of Penn's recent split from wife of 14 years, Robin Wright, with whom he had a somewhat stormy relationship.

But while it lasts, we'll be busy thinking of a cute name for the couple. PennJo? ScarPenn? SeanJo? The possibilities are, seemingly, endless.

[Somewhere, Dorkus, Sas & byoolin begin a game of rock-paper-scissors to determine the next contestant for Ms. Johansson's affections. The Lovelies Mrs. D,S & B watch and knowingly roll their eyes.]

Run, ScarJo, run! Otherwise it's probably only a matter of time till you're beaten by the punch, too.

Dorkus-

Nope. Payback for not telling me when Ryan Reynolds was in Austin at a public party. Sorry toots.

It's the bad boy thing. Scarlett should talk to Robin Wright and Sandra Bullock about how well THAT kind of attraction turns out.

Cali, since it was brought up that Sandra spent New Year's Eve with Ryan Reynolds, I'm doubting ScarJo would want to talk to her.
