Are Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds reuniting?

Are Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds rekindling their romance post-divorce? The former spouses were reportedly spotted on a Saturday night dinner date that appeared rather intimate.

“They were leaning in closely to each other when talking,” a gawker at L.A.’s Little Dom restaurant told People magazine. “They were being flirty.”

“Scarlett was being very flirty with him, staring into his eyes and listening very intently to everything he was saying,” another spy (who may or may not have been the same person) told Life&Style magazine. “The way Ryan looked at her, you could tell he still has feelings for her.

“Scarlett kept pinching Ryan’s cheeks and caressing his face, and while they were chatting, Ryan would rub her back periodically. Something’s definitely up.”

Now that Sean Penn is out of the picture, do you think Scarlett and Ryan will give it another shot?

Name tribute

Miranda Kerr has revealed the origin of her son’s name, Flynn. It honors the supermodel’s high school boyfriend — and husband Orlando Bloom is OK with that. And understandably so: After they had been dating for two years, her ex-beau died in a car accident.

“After he died, I wrote him a letter that said I hoped to name my first child after him in some way,” Miranda told Australia’s Daily Telegraph. “I told Orlando, and he was the one who said he’d be happy to do that. Orlando’s a good guy.”

Demi’s turnaround

After receiving treatment, Demi Lovato is speaking candidly about her self-destructive behavior — and how her loved ones were aware of it.

“I wasn’t going to continue to be alive if I continued to treat my body the way I was,” the Disney star told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. “I was unmedicated for so many years, and it led to so many problems, which eventually led to some of my biggest problems, which were anorexia and bulimia and cutting.”

And evidently she couldn’t hide them.

“It was the elephant in the room,” Demi said. “Everyone knew about it, but didn’t know how to approach it. It was affecting every area of my life. I was being cranky, I was irritable, not pleasant really to work with. I became a little brat on set, and I just had so much growing up to do. Ultimately, I was never intentionally attempting to be that way, but I had so much going on in my head.”

Did her beau at the time, Joe Jonas, know what she was going through?

“Joe was my best friend for years prior to that so he knew,” said the former “Sonny With a Chance” actress. “Obviously I’m not superclose with him anymore just because a lot has happened, but I was very thankful to have the support of many, many friends even up to this day.”

Seems like at least some of them should have tried to get her help. But hey, Demi got it herself.
