About Why Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn broke up

Hollywood has been abuzz with speculation about why Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn’s short-lived relationship fizzled so quickly.

And now it appears that there may be an answer to the riddle.

According to reports, the 50-year-old actor ‘did not want to be tied down’ to 26-year-old Lost In Translation actress.

Commitment-phobe? According to reports, Sean Penn did not want to be tied down to Scarlett Johansson, who was said to be ‘desperate’ to be pictured with the actor at the Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards last week

Sean split with Scarlett after five months, because he ‘didn’t want anthing serious,’ a source told Us Weekly.

It has also been revealed that Scarlett was desperate to reignite the flame, especially at the recent Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards in LA, where the former couple were snapped together.

Speculation was rife that they may have reunited when they were spotted back in each other’s arms that night.

But a witness to the event told the magazine this was simply not the case.

‘She pushed herself into his conversations,’ the insider told Us Weekly.

‘She sat down between him and Robert De Niro. Robert was like “What?” and made a face.’

And in an even further embarrassing revelation, Scarlett was desperate to get a snap with her former lover.

‘A photographer asked for a shot,’ the witness said. ‘Before Sean could say no, she said yes.’.

Earlier Sean seemingly avoided Scarlett on the red carpet by sneaking in the back door while the actress arrived in a stunning white Valentino dress.

At the event Sean accepted the Guy Movie Hall of Fame award from Robert De Niro for his role in Fast Times on Ridgemont High.

Sean and Scarlett’s relationship from the start surprised everyone when it came out of the blue, but according to the insider it was all a result of Scarlett’s pursuing.

The actress is said to have initially chased Sean following his divorce from ex-wife Robin Wright, even though he wasn’t looking for a relationship.

‘Scarlett pursued him,’ they said.

Sean and Scarlett set off a media frenzy after they went on a romantic getaway to Cabo San Lucas earlier this year.

They were also spotted together on a flirty lunch in a Los Angeles restaurant in March of this year when Scarlett rested her legs on the actor’s lap.

Speculation that there has been trouble brewing in their fledgling relationship began when Scarlett was noticeably absent from the premiere of Penn’s latest film, The Tree of Life, at the Cannes Film Festival last month.

A source then confirmed to People Magazine last week that the pair has indeed called it quits and are no longer an item.
