Since leaving now ex-hubby Ryan Reynolds last December, Scarlett Johansson has been linked to a number of new suitors including Sean Penn (gross!), Kieran Culkin and Bradley Cooper. But now US Magazine brings us news that her latest something something is Joseph Gordon-Levitt. They both have many things in common – they were both child stars, they’ve both starred in superhero movies, they both juggle a number of extra-curricular projects – and most notably, they are both yids. Basically the two were spotted kissing last July while having dinner in New York. They’ve known each other for a while, and in 2010 there was talk of a zombie based romantic comedy, Breathers: A Zombie’s Lament. “They first met about a film they wanted to do together,” one source told Us, “but it’s gone beyond that now.”
I don’t know what’s more exciting, the Jew thing or the zombie thing. I’m hoping this develops into both deeper professional and personal relationship. Fun trivia fact? Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s parents were amongst the founders of the Progressive Jewish Alliance.
