The pair were spied on a cosy dinner date at an exclusive gastro pub in Santa Monica
Hot new couple alert! Newly single Scarlett Johansson only announced her split with hubby Ryan Reynolds back in December, but already the Hollywood rumour mill is abuzz with romance rumours.
Earlier week, the starlet was spotted on a cosy date with actor Jason Sudeikis, according to reports.
It’s thought Scarlett and the Saturday Night Live star stepped out as a twosome for the very first time earlier this week, to visit swanky Santa Monica eatery, Father’s Office.
According to onlookers, the pair met up with two friends, on what looked suspiciously like a double date.
‘It definitely looked like a double date,’ one eyewitness told Life & Style magazine.
‘Scarlett and Jason were flirting and making lots of eye contact. He reached across the table twice to grab her hand.’
But before you get too excited, it seems love might not be in the air after all. This morning a rep for the star has shot down reports she is dating.
‘Scarlett is not dating Jason, nor is she dating anyone for that matter,’ the spokesman said in a statement. ‘It was just a friendly outing amongst friends.’
