Did Scarlett Johansson's brief entanglement with Sean Penn make her appreciate what she had with Ryan Reynolds (and his abs)? Us Weekly claims the actress can't get her ex-husband off her mind.
"Scarlett has been chasing Ryan to get him back," contends a source. "She has been calling him incessantly trying to see him, trying to meet up with him or see how he is."
But Reynolds has supposedly been keeping his distance. "Scarlett is surprised that Ryan doesn't drop everything to be with her when she was the one who left him," says a spy. "He still loves her, but he does not want to get played again."
The pair finalized their divorce on July 1, seven months after they announced their split. Still, that didn't stop them from meeting up for dinner in Los Angeles a few days later.
"Scarlett was being very flirty with him, staring into his eyes and listening very intently to everything he was saying," a spy told Life & Style last month. "The way Ryan looked at her, you could tell he still has feelings for her."
ScarJo's rep, however, downplays the reunion speculation, telling Us, "Scarlett has remained friends with Ryan, and she's still very fond of him, but there's no talk of reconciliation."
And what of the actor's rumored hookup with Charlize Theron?
Us says it's already fizzled because he wasn't looking for anything serious. Plus, "They're both too busy," says an insider.
