Scarlett Johansson Vs. Sean Penn: A Comparative Timelineby Scott Alden on April 4, 2020
Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn's relationship was recently made "official" when they attended Reese Witherspoon's wedding (gasp!) together. Both parties are obviously benefiting from the arrangement (Sean Penn being one of the coolest dudes living today and Scarlett Johansson being, you know, really hot).
However, it is a 24-year difference that we're talking about. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it, but perhaps a comparative timeline will helps us to understand what the age gap in the Seanlett Johanpenn (you got something better?) relationship actually means.
