Recently single Scarlett Johannson and Macaulay’s little brother Kieran Culkin have sparked “are they or aren’t they” rumors, as the pair were spotted out at a burlesque club in Paris recently.
ScarJo and Culkin reportedly took a stroll around the Champs-Élysées, stopping for dinner at a spot called Pizza Pino before heading over to the Crazy Horse burlesque show. But it bears mentioning that both Johannson and Culkin grew up in Manhattan and attended the Professional Children’s School as teens.
The outing may have been a stress reliever for Johannson, who has had a bit of a tumultuous year. The starlet, 28, split from Ryan Reynolds in December, and has since been linked to Sean Penn and tenuously to Justin Timberlake. (The singer and ScarJo are reportedly “just friends.”) And just this month, racy nude shots of Scarlett were leaked as part of a celebrity cell phone hacking ring.
After the in-demand pics of the curvaceous star began circulating, her lawyer Marty Singer had some cautionary words to those who might consider trafficking in Scarlett Johannson nudes. Singer warned:
“The highly personal and private photographs at issue capture our client self-posing in her own home in a state of undress and/or topless… If you fail to comply, you will be acting at your own peril. Please govern yourselves accordingly.”
No one in Johannson or Culkin’s camp offered comment on the rumors. Later this month, Kieran Culkin will appear in the newly released film Margaret with True Blood actress Anna Paquin.
