Sean Penn & Scarlett Johansson Aren’t Great Dinner Guests

Here are Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson holding hands as they leave a party after the White House Correspondents Dinner. Not exactly a scandalous story considering the history these two have of diddling each other publicly. The most interesting part of the story, however is how they behaved while at dinner. According to Us Weekly:

Despite being in the presence of President Barack Obama and celebrities like Mila Kunis and Donald Trump, an eyewitness tells Us Weekly that Scarlett Johansson was engrossed in an “intense” makeout session with Sean Penn at Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, D.C. It happened right as the main course of the dinner was being put on the table,” the witness says, adding that Johansson, 26, sat in Penn’s lap during part of the meal.

To put into perspective why this behavior is awkwardly inappropriate, aside from basic social conventions and manners, here they each describe their motivations for being at the dinner in the first place:

I really want to get more involved,” she [Scarlett] told Us. As for Penn, 50? “Well, the dinner, but I also have a lot of meetings on The Hill this week,” he told Us. “I’m mostly here for Haiti, and I want to help bring some attention to that crisis.

Look, I’m no high-powered celebrity looking to throw my fame behind a worthy cause. I usually just cut and upload photos and make sure Fish doesn’t get arrested in the bushes outside of Jon Hamm‘s house. But if I was at the fanciest dinner I’d likely ever be at in my life and some chick was making out with a dude who looks like her dad at the table next to me, I probably wouldn’t be interested in their political opinions.

    I like you, Photo boy.

  2. Keep up the good work PB.

  3. Mr Hand

    Are you *STILL* on dope, Mister Spicoli??

  4. dude!

    Two losers at a dinner for losers

  5. Scarlett Johansson’s is again a “Victim of Angles and Weird Shirts”. Nice beer gut!

  6. JC

    Lucky for me that I was never interested in their political opinions in the first place.

  7. Ness

    She needs to do some more running if she doesn’t want to show off her ::cough, cough::pregnancy ::cough:: . I mean how dare the press photograph her at another mysterious angle.

  8. Deacon Jones

    What happened to her tits????

    Or I should ask, where did they go?

  9. RoboZombie

    Like we need more proof Sean Penn is a colossal douche.

  10. Well you know what they say about the golden rule for dating; the man’s age, divided by 2, plus 7. If this were true, Scarlett’s only 6 years off, which isn’t so terrible right…right???

    She looks pregnant to me….also the fact that she went back to her roots…can’t bleach hair when you’re pregnant…hmmmmmm.

  13. I was trying to think of something funny, but Sean Penn is an asshole just kept coming into my head.

    If Scarlet is going to suck face for Haiti, I wonder if she’ll fuck for Japan?

  15. Bucky Barnes

    To be fair all they can do is make out because Madonna locks the penises of all the men she fucks in her trophy case. Poor Sean has had to sit down to pee since the mid ’80s, which may be part of the reason he’s always so cranky…

    The more she hangs out with this hideous scumbag, the uglier she gets.

  17. AlexK

    These two just make me sick. What the hell is going on there anyway? Does he have her parents tied up in the basement or something? What the fuck could a hot piece like Scarlett see in a dipshit, poser, asshole like Penn?

  18. UnholyKrep

    Well Penn is a wee pixie, so if Johansson is shorter than Penn that makes her just about the size of an action figure.

  19. stevebeagle

    he needs a shoe to the ass.

  20. That Guy

    She likes intellectual guys. :P

    • Cher X

      If that’s the case, what is she doing with HIM?

    • puttypants

      Penn an intellectual. Have you ever heard him try to talk? He can’t put two sentences together in any coherent form. They are disgusting.. 26 and 50 OIY…He’s a pedophile.

  21. oj

    What’s that dripping down her ankle?

    I wish I could be Sean Penn’s penis for just one day.

  23. jumpin_j

    So she’s dating someone who could be her father? Hmm, nope. Don’t see a problem.

  24. When he got up, was Sean Penn sporting a tent? Because that would have been awkward.

  25. Jerry

    They were engaged in a spirited bout of Skanko-Roman wrestling.

  26. Krissy

    Yeah, she doesn’t look pregnant at all. Nope, not one bit.

  27. E

    I don’t understand the “OMG THEY WERE MAKING OUT IN FRONT OF MILA KUNIS AND DONALD TRUMP!” Obama’s the President, so that I get. But really? Mila Kunis’s presence demands the restriction of PDA?

    bad bad angle !!

  29. The Critical Crassness

    Is it just a coincidence that Sean Penn is looking better than he has in years and that ScarJo is looking more and more like middle-aged house-frau? I think not!

    • Jock McCrock

      haha yes, i’ve seen that happen with inter-generational romances – the older one seems to suck all the lushness out of the younger one until they both sort of match.

      • Snarky_Pup

        It’s true. Younger women who marry older dudes actually age faster. In a couple of years, Sean is going to be thinking that Madonna and Robin still look pretty damned good compared to an aging porker like Scarlett. It’s all downhill from here.

  30. delia

    he’s sucking the pretty right out of her, she looks like a soccer mom now, and she’s younger than mila kunis!

  31. See Alice

    The biggest part of the story (dont know why it wasnt mentioned here ) was his inaction during the pledge . What losers . His claim to fame is Fast Times and hasnt done anything decent since .

    • Really

      I understand the anger at not saluting the flag (although I think we overemphasize the importance of an inanimate object), but the second part of this statement is just ridiculous. Whatever you may think of his politics, he has put together a solid acting career.

  32. method roughing

    Who was Mila Kunis servicing at the white house? Most ridiculous story I ever read

  33. Schmales

    I’m pretty sure she’s pregnant

    She gave up Ryan Reynolds and went for that troll? What an idiot.

  35. eww

    I want the story on TruMP being there after his crazy birther bs.

  36. The Lord Almighty

    Hey Sean, stop wasting time and money on Haiti. There are plenty of places that deserve it more. How much has the world pumped into that place to date and the result is zero? They’ll never get their act together and will sit with their hands out expecting everything to be handed to them rather than get off their asses and fix their own problems.

  37. method roughing

    RETRACTION : Oh now I understand how she could’ve end up at the White House.

    I have to cut back on roughing on impulse.

  38. Mel Gibson's Shrink

    I am 24 and the thought of having sex with a 40 year old (much less so FIFTY) guy makes me want to vomit for days straight. I don’t give a fuck’s ass how famous and rich he is, no old fart is putting his dick in me. Scarlett’s got herself some daddy issues. And she is pregnant.

    • The Lord Almighty

      Well not to worry after 29 (Female expiration date) no man under 40 will want you so it’ll all sort itself out. The light that burns twice as bright only burns half as long.

      • Mel Gibson's Shrink

        Yeah, that’s why you see all those cougars around with men young enough to be their sons. I am sorry if it hurts your feelings but over the hill men are gross.

      • Dirty old whore

        Yes, young men they PAY :) If you’re a woman over 30 and not rich you’re invisible to the opposite sex. Tick tock tick tock listen to your clock, its running out of time.

      • puttypants

        You know what’s a turn on in women…fun, funny, cute, smart…. no girls you don’t expire at 20 unless you’re vapid and vacant….maybe for some guys but who’d want those guys anyway cause they’re idiots. You’ll never expire if you have the above qualities.

    • Mel Gibson's Shrink

      @Dirty Old Whore – Maybe yours, mine is not running out of anything. And are you trying to tell me that young women go out with old farts for their sexy bodies and their stash of Viagra? You know full well that they go out with them for their money or just cause they have daddy issues.

  39. Superficial Bitch

    Two words kids: Daddy Issues.

    dont understand why actors even get invited to all these types of things. where people are actually doing things with their lives and make decisions for us, while they just actors in films. how are they supposed to act like? just eat their meal trying to look educated and nod to conversation they have no idea about.

  41. Madonna in her prime? The Princess Bride? Scarlett Johansson? Penn has always looked like he loses fights for a living. All I can say is this dude must have his rap DOWN.

    What kind of drugs does he have her on?

  43. Anyone who has heard Scarlett speak for any length of time knows there’s only 1 reason Penn is with her currently.

  44. Bree

    I’m not sure why they were invited, but laugh all you want… Don’t want to gross everyone out, but CLEARLY these two have hot sexual chemistry and for anyone who has, you (we, I…) know how powerful it is… It won’t last forever, so let them enjoy it!

  45. the captain

    you start to wonder why they call hm “Sean Anal”?

  46. I like that Mila Kunis was put in the same category as the President and Donald Trump.

    That person sounds very untrusted, I believe he’s fucking old douchebag.

  50. LeeLee

    She’s not pregnant…she’s fat. As for Sean and the age difference, it’s some times about passion and chemistry, and other times about covering one @ss. In this case, I choose option two. Their relationship is way too ostentatious, bordering on publicly inappropriate, to be anything heart felt or even real. And let’s not forget his ‘acting’ with James Franco.

    I’m bi–but not much on guys–, and I could never ‘act’ that attracted to a man. I’ll never be able to look at Sean with a woman again, and not be like…well now, who’s the boytoy that you see every other Monday? Lol. She looks happy though; maybe he bought her a vintage Barbie Fold and Fun house from 1994 on eBay….LOL!

    With regard to his politics…just never mind. There are very few celebrities who balance their views…
