They supposedly split up just a few weeks ago.
But last night Scarlett Johansson was back on the arm of Sean Penn as they posed back stage at the Spike TV 2011 Guys Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

Earlier they avoided posing together on the red carpet, with Sean sneaking in the back door, while Scarlett arrived in a stunning white Valentino dress.
At the event Penn accepted the Guy Movie Hall of Fame award from Robert De Niro for his role in Fast Times on Ridgemont High.
Sean and Scarlett set off a media frenzy after they went on a romantic getaway to Cabo San Lucas earlier this year.
They were also spotted together on a flirty lunch in a Los Angeles restaurant in March of this year when Scarlett rested her legs on the actor's lap.

Her new fitness regime is just another thing she now has in common with one of the beauties at the event, another newly minted singleton Cameron Diaz, 38.
The blonde is reported to have split from her baseball pro lover Alex 'A-Rod' Rodriguez, 35 , but betrayed no sign of sadness at the high-spirited event, despite opting for a funeral black suit.
