Are Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn not only dating, but getting serious? According to reports, yes, after a short-but-romantic vacation getaway to Mexico.
“She thinks Sean is amazing,” says a friend of ScarJo’s to PopEater.

It’s a celebrity fashion clash of cuties from the Academy Awards.
Cuties may not even do these two justice, based on the dresses they donned Sunday night. Black Swan star Mila Kunis’ gown can best be described as head-snapping for reasons we don’t even need to get into here. But seriously, wow.
Mandy Moore, meanwhile, was also on hand to perform “I See the Light” from her hit animated film Tangled, and looked so beautiful it was hard to believe this was Mandy Moore. No offense to Mandy Moore, it’s just … wow again.

Being pregnant and engaged to Benjamin Millepied, that is!
Accepting the Desert Palm Achievement Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, the tight-lipped star gave a brief, adorable shout-out to him:

That’s because the actor is no longer dating Mila Kunis. He and the beauty ended their eight-year relationship over the weekend, as the latter’s rep says “the split was amicable, and they remain close friends.”
Kunis has already been nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in Black Swan. Oscar buzz is also circulating around the actress, who has been open in the past about her views on marriage.
