Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn flew down to Cabo San Lucas for a whirlwind 24-hour vacation during Scar Jo’s day off from filming We Bought A Zoo. Things are really heating up!

It’s official. There is no way Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn are “just friends.” People is reporting the random new couple flew down to Cabo San Lucas March 1, enjoyed a fancy meal of lobster and margaritas and returned the next morning. Romantic rendezvous? We think so.

According to the report, Sean, 50, and Scarlett, 26, left Los Angeles early Tuesday morning on a private jet and were spotted later that evening having dinner in Cabo. Unfortunately, the escapade was cut short and the couple returned to the States early Wednesday morning, because Scarlett is in the middle of shooting We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon.

Scar Jo — who split her hubby of two years, Ryan Reynolds, in December — and Sean — who recently divorced his wife, Robin Wright, after 13 years — were first spotted flirting together in early February at a party celebrating Black Swan. Although the actors’ reps denied any romance between the two at the time, they haven’t commented since. From the looks of things, Scarlett and Sean are definitely a couple.
