Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn call it quits

June 3, 2011 | 11:30 am

Scarjopenn Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn have called it quits. After a whirlwind romance, reports People, it looks like this rebound relationship ran its course.

The A-list couple caused a media blitz when they were spotted together in Cabo San Lucas in March and then reportedly moved in together in April. Baby bump buzz and a trip to the White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington, D.C., only fueled interest in the couple.

However, things didn't seem quite so lovey dovey when ScarJo skipped out on Penn's big Cannes premiere for "Tree of Life" in May. She stayed back in the States to film "The Avengers" in New Mexico instead. So far, a source has confirmed the break up to People, but no explanation was provided.

Both actors had gone through public divorces recently. Penn and Robin Wright were officially over in July 2010; Johansson and Ryan Reynolds split in December.
