The second Scarlett Johansson steps out into the spotlight with a member of the opposite sex, she is rumored to be dating him. But now having been spotted several times with U.K. rocker Dan White, the Daily Mirror is convinced the couple are officially dating.
According to the Daily Mirror's report, Johansson was introduced to The Tribe's guitarist at a nightclub in London. Johansson is currently in the U.K. shooting for her new film, Under the Skin.
They got on like a house on fire and Scarlett was into his band's music. There was an instant connection. They've been seeing each other for a good few weeks. Dan's proper happy about it -- and what guy wouldn't be? He already thinks the world of Scarlett, one source told The Daily Mirror
Johansson's high profile divorce with actor Ryan Reynolds was finalized in July this year. The couple started dating discreetly before exchanging vows at a rural wedding in Vancouver in 2008. They listed irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce.
Since then Johansson has been linked to a whole string of new men. The first was Sean Penn. The rumors started when the couple went to Mexico on a private jet and were spotted having a romantic dinner in Cabo San Lucas. They were also spotted walking hand in hand when they returned to L.A. the next day. But it turned out to be a whirlwind relationship that ended before it even started.
Then rumors started to surface about a potential relationship with Bradley Cooper, and next rumors regarding her long-time friend Justin Timberlake. A cozy meal in Paris with Kieran Culkin caused speculation about a potential new beau.
In October she was linked to 50/50 actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and recently she was dating Kate Moss' ex-boy toy Jefferson Hack, the Daily Mirror reported. The Mirror is convinced that Johansson's relationship with White is official.
It's not just her love life that has brought Johansson into the spotlight recently. She swept headlines after a 35-year-old hacker in Florida admitted to being involved in a hacking incident in which nude photos of the actress were distributed on the Internet.
Christopher Chaney said that he would plead guilty at the Los Angeles court where he is slated to face federal charges. He told officials that he had started celebrity hacking out of curiosity but it soon became an addiction he could not control.
I know what I did was probably the worst invasion of privacy someone could experience. I'm not trying to escape what I did. It was wrong. And I have to just face that and go forward, Chaney said.
