Johansson and Pean were spotted holding hands Saturday night after the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, DC.
To fuel the rumours that the pair have been dating for some time now, Scarlett was also wearing Sean’s dinner jacket over her shoulders as they walked hand in hand in the chilly night air.
The 26-year-old actress split from husband Ryan Reynolds last year, while 50-year-old Penn has been through no less than 3 attempts at divorce from his wife Robin Wright Penn before it was made official.
Rumours surfaced about the budding back in February when Penn and Johansson were seen to be on a lunch date.
A spokesperson for Johansson brushed off the speculation insisting, “Scarlett and Sean are not dating – they have been friends for years,” but the statement failed to silence gossip about the alleged romance.
To add to the media speculation surrounding this pair, the spokesperson also denied that Scarlett is pregnant with Penn’s baby.
