Do friends play footsy? That's the question being asked after TMZ scored a fuzzy photo of Scarlett Johansson's sought-after tootsies in the vicinity of Sean Penn's lap during a lunch meet-up on Monday at a Cuban eatery in Los Angeles. A source claims they were "smiling and laughing" while chowing down, and the actress, who called it quits with Ryan Reynolds in December, picked up the tab.
The oddball pair were first linked in February, when Us Weekly labeled them "undercover lovers" and claimed ScarJo, 26, was "smitten" with the notoriously crankypants do-gooder, 50, who, after a few unsuccessful attempts, finalized his divorce from Robin Wright in July 2010. Scarlett's rep has previously denied the dating speculation, insisting that the two are merely longtime friends with a shared interest in Haiti.
