Scarlett Johansson and Jared Leto Secret New Couple?

Scarlett Johansson was at the star-studded Democratic National Convention to lend her support to President Obama’s second bid for the presidency, but was the actress also making a personal second bid for a relationship with ex-boyfriend Jared Leto?

The 27-year-old Scarlett was seen holding hands with Leto, leaning against him, grabbing his wrist, and smiling.

Currently the actress is in a relationship with art director Nate Naylor, but their body language has us wondering if some fireworks were being sparked between the two former flames who dated back in 2004.

Well, in this case, where there’s smoke, there isn’t fire, Scarlett’s rep tells Hollyscoop exclusively:

“Scarlett is still dating Nate. Scarlett and Jared have remained friends, nothing more, nothing less,” her rep states.

“This is very innocent. Scarlett wasn’t even aware that Jared was going to be at the DNC where Scarlett was giving a speech. Let’s concentrate on the message of the speech as that exponentially is more important and interesting,” her rep adds.

Scarlett took the stage last night in a faded American flag graphic tee, channeling her superhuman Avengers star power, to encourage the youth vote and get a younger demographic more enthusiastic about voting.

She recounted how even as a child too young to vote she would help her mother cast her ballot while pledging her allegiance to re-electing President Obama in November.
