We recently had some pics of Scarlett Johansson and her inexplicable new beau Sean Pean, jogging around their neighborhood. These images sparked some controversy. Apart from the rather odd pairing of Spicolli and Black Widow, it also appeared that Scarlett had put on some significant weight, with some speculating that perhaps she had a little miniature paparazzi avenger growing within her.
Checking her out on the red carpet for a Children's Defense Fund benefit, she doesn't seem to be any thicker than she was in IRON MAN 2. Of course, there could be generous application of Lycra at work under that dress, holding back the accumulated cellulite. She doesn't look like she's beefed up anywhere else though, so maybe it was as the press agents claimed, namely an unfortunate draping of clothing around her midsection. That still doesn't explain why she's dating Mr. Liberal Agenda personified. I guess we'll just have to continue speculating about that.
