Is there trouble in paradise for Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn? The new couple haven’t been shy about hot-and-heavy PDA for the past few months, and a source tells the New York Daily News that their relationship is “romantic”… but that didn’t stop Sean from chatting up some new lady friends at the Cannes Film Festival.
After attending a black-tie benefit, followed by a private party on a yacht (Stars! They’re so not like us!), the Oscar winner was sighted back at his hotel. But although his room was on the ground floor, he took a ride to the third floor with a blonde and a brunette described by the paper’s source as “super-hot.” “They weren’t sharing the elevator. They were going up together,” the source clarifies.
ScarJo and Sean are reportedly still a couple, but have had “some tension” lately, according to the source.
Seriously, Sean? You’re hooking up with one of the hottest women in the world — yet you’re already tiring of her?
Fists of Ronnie
And speaking of trouble in paradise, it seems the “Jersey Shore” crew has already brought their signature mix of fist pumps and fisticuffs to Italy, where they’re filming the phenomenon reality show’s latest season. And this time, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro got the best of Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, according to TMZ.
The day after their (alleged) fight, paparazzi spotted The Sitch looking red-faced — literally — while Ronnie was photographed sporting cuts on his knuckles.
Why the bro-on-bro violence? Evidently, it had something to do with Ronnie’s on-yet-again romance with the inaccurately nicknamed Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola.
Surprised? Us neither.
These days, celeb DUI busts are practically routine — but Estella Warren managed to get herself into a fairly spectacular display of disorderliness late Monday night. As a result, she also faces charges of hit-and-run, assault, and felony escape, per TMZ.
The “Planet of the Apes” star reportedly hit three L.A. neighbors’ parked cars with her Toyota Prius, kicked one of the arresting officers … and then, back at the precinct, proceeded to wriggle out of her handcuffs and bolt through a back door before being taken back into custody. (Proof that actresses today are too bony!)
The former model also allegedly tried to flee the scene, according to a man whose car she (allegedly) hit.
“I yelled at her, but she drove off and hit my car again as she carried on down the street,” the man relayed to Radar Online. “I immediately called the police, and when I went outside I could see her car in the distance.”
“I believe she hit at least two other cars before she stopped. When I approached her she was obviously drunk and acting crazy,” he added. “When I told her she had to wait for the police to arrive, she lashed out at me and started to ‘girl-slap’ me on my chest and arms. We tried to calm her down, but she abandoned her car and started walking away to her [nearby] house. ... I followed her, and the police arrived and arrested her in the street. She started arguing with them too, and she struck one of the officers.”
Yikes! Somewhere, Estella’s publicist is probably shouting, “I prayed for her to get her name in the press again … but not like this! Not like this!”
