London: Actors Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn have added fuel to the rumours that they are dating after they were spotted holding hands at a White House party.
There have been denials from the two ever since rumours first surfaced, but pictures taken as they left a politically charged event in Washington D.C., showed differently.
Johansson, 26, and Penn, 50, were photographed strolling casually through the grounds of the president’s home holding hands, with the actress wrapped up in his suit jacket.
In February a spokesperson for Johansson had denied the two were dating.
“Scarlett and Sean are not dating – they have been friends for years. Nothing more, nothing less,” the Daily Mail quoted the spokesperson as saying.
“They have been talking over the last few months regarding Haiti Relief and Scarlett’s upcoming trip to Haiti as Oxfam’s Global Ambassador,” the had person added.
