Why Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn Split

After scaling the ancient ruins of Sean Penn, Scarlett Johansson is back to being solo. While the obvious reason is that she got tired of going to bed at 7 pm and preparing his Metamucil, surprisingly, that wasn't it.

Sean Penn was actually the one who ended things, according to reports.

An insider revealed that, after five months of dating, Sean didn't want anything serious so he broke up with Johansson.

Last Sunday, during Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards, Scarlett apparently did her best to be near Sean.

"She pushed herself into his conversations," a witness said. "She sat down between him and Robert De Niro. Robert was like 'What?' and made a face."

She's got some balls to interrupt Robert De Niro. I guess she hasn't seen Cape Fear.

"A photographer asked for a shot," said a souse. "Before Sean could say no, she said yes."

Penn ended his marriage to Robin Wright in 2010, and hasn't wanted anything serious since. If dating a 25 year-old post divorce doesn’t scream, "rebound", then we need to redefine the word.

In related news, Sean Penn apparently offered a role for Into the Wild to actor Zach Galifianakis. Galifianakis responded by telling Penn he didn't have time to talk because he had to go to Arby's.

Zach Galifanakis is like a crazy man who lived in the woods and somehow made his way into the movies. He's also rumored to have told Penn: "send my Jews the script."

Let's hope the rumors are just that, because we really don't need another Mel Gibson in Hollywood.
