London: Scarlett Johansson has opened up about her relationship with Sean Penn for the first time, admitting they were seeing each other.

The 27-year-old, who looks as sleek as the leopard she’s walking with in a 40s style frock in the picture, was snapped by Princess Diana’s favourite photographer Mario Testino.

The New York-based actress told Vogue that she had been seeing actor Sean Penn, who is Madonna’s ex.

“We spent time together, yeah. I never put a title on it, really, but we were seeing each other. He’s a remarkable person, he really is,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.

More recently she has been dating New York–based advertising creative director Nate Naylor.
