The low-key flashing of a huge diamond engagement ring at last week’s Venice Film Festival set tongues wagging that 28-year-old Scarlett Johnasson was engaged to her French journalist boyfriend, Romain Dauriac. And although the Lost In Translation star herself has stayed tight-lipped about her new bauble, insiders have spilled that they’re “very happy”, with their rep adding, “I can confirm that Scarlett and Romain are engaged. They haven’t chosen a date for the wedding.”
But with the pair only together for 10 months, and Scarlett’s post-Ryan Reynolds dating choices random to say the least (including flings with Sean Penn and New York advertising exec, Nate Naylor), insiders have been left wondering if ScarJo is rushing into things as a reaction to Ryan publicly flaunting his love with new wife, Blake Lively.
“The engagement was a surprise,” spilled a source. “Not only because they haven’t been together that long, but because what happened with Ryan seemed to have put her off the idea of marrying again.”
Scarlett herself insisted, “I never think about marriage… It’s really not important to me.” But Hollywood sources have spilled that Ryan and Blake’s PDAs may have influenced Scarlett’s whirlwind engagement. “Scarlett is [annoyed] that he’s not under her spell anymore,” spilled one.
