Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn split up earlier this month but have made it clear that they intend to remain close friends. The couple had only been dating for a few months when they decided to split, yet they have still been seen out and about together, enjoying each other’s company.
A source close to the Hollywood couple said, "If you remember after Scarlett confirmed her split from husband Ryan [Reynolds], the two continued to see each other and have dinner together. She is incredible. Just because you are no longer with someone doesn't mean you stop caring about them and never want to see them again. She still cares a great deal about Sean and couldn't imagine seeing him at an event or award show and not saying hello. Only children act like that!"
Scarlett Johansson was married to Ryan Reynolds for two years before the couple split in December 2010. Although they do still remain good friends, Ryan has admitted that he has never quite gotten over the pain of the break up and that he may never do so.
