SCARLETT & RYAN
MOVING ON … And How!
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds‘ breakup three months ago appeared to be drama-free; their post-split lives, however, have enough international intrigue for a James Bond movie. Johansson, 26, took a 24-hour trip to Cabo San Lucas with Sean Penn, 50, after an intimate lunch together at a Cuban restaurant in L.A. on Feb. 28. Neither of their reps will comment on their relationship, but there are reports that the pair will soon travel to Haiti, the earthquake-devastated country where Penn has been heavily involved in relief efforts. Meanwhile in Cape Town, Reynolds, 34, has been getting cozy with German model Agnes Fischer, 25. Their reps are keeping mum too, but the pair have been spotted on and off the set of his new political thriller Safe House.
Christina Aguilera‘s friends are worried about the singer, 30, after she was detained for public intoxication March 1. “Her boyfriend is a bad influence,” a pal tells Scoop of musician Matt Rutler, 25, who was arrested for a DUI the same night. Adds another friend: “We hope she takes a step back and focuses on herself for a while.” Maybe not just yet. Says a third pal: “Her friends don’t approve of Matt. But she has fun with him.”
HALLE & GABRIEL
MAKING IT WORK-FOR NOW
Halle Berry, 44, and Gabriel Aubry, 35, seem to have set their custody dispute aside-for at least a New York minute. The two are in the Big Apple with daughter Nahla, who turns 3 March 16, while Berry shoots her next movie, New Year’s Eve. Berry reportedly won permission to take Nahla to Manhattan against Aubry’s wishes. Despite their disagreement, Aubry flew to N.Y.C. on March 6 with Nahla, who, says a passenger, was “very well-behaved.”
COURTENEY & DAVID
COSTARS AND CRASHES
It was just another day at the office for Courteney Cox, 46, and the cast of Cougar Town when they arrived Feb. 26 at the posh Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu for a week of filming. But after it wrapped, rumors sprouted that Cox and costar Brian Van Holt, 41, extended their trip to spend some alone time. Not true, a source says: “Almost everyone in the cast and crew stayed after filming was complete to have dinner with [show producer] Bill Lawrence.” Meanwhile, things were not going so swimmingly for David Arquette, who was involved in a car accident March 4. The actor, 39, later tweeted he was “fine” and even joked, “I have dragon’s blood running through my veins,” riffing on Charlie Sheen’s “tiger blood.”
