Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson broke up because she wasn’t intellectual enough for him. From The National Enquirer:
“It was the last straw when Sean disparaged [Scarlett’s] lack of education about politics and urged her to go to school. Scarlett loves him, but she had to end the romance because she felt she had no breathing room.” The May-December romance began to unravel when [Johansson] felt a little out of her depth intellectually when she recently attended a White House gala. That convinced Penn, 50, that the pillow-lipped beauty — who never attended college — needed to get more education. Back in 2003, she had applied for New York University’s arts program but was rejected. “Sean suggested Scarlett take a political science course,” revealed an insider, “and it rubbed her the wrong way. She’s a free spirit and just became fed up with him trying to take over every aspect of her life – from career choices and work habits to people she associated with.”
Sean Penn fellates Hugo Chavez at every opportunity and hires photographers to follow him around in Haiti, so he’s probably as qualified to lecture anyone else on politics as Lindsay Lohan is to be an AA sponsor. In addition, it’s Scarlett Johansson. As long as she never gets a breast reduction, the rest of the world couldn’t give a shit less if she confuses Richard Marx with Karl Marx. And if she never releases a cover of “Hold On To The Nights,” that’d be cool too.
