Sean Penn And ScarJo Are Kaput! My Thoughts
People reported that Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson are no longer an unlikely couple.
In fact, they're no longer a couple at all.
And I can't say I'm wildly surprised.
Most showbiz relationships don't last, but this one -- a starlet looking for a daddy -- had an even lower chance for survival than most because it seemed more like a kinky sexual liaison than an actual pairing.
ScarJo must have been in way over her head.
And Sean probably overestimated the allure of a double-Oscar-winning political type with a too-strong sense of self.
My feeling is they should have never gone public as a couple (which they did at Reese's weeding, among other high-profile events).
I mean, I've had sex with people, but that doesn't mean you bring them to a friend's wedding!
