Some Stars Have All the Luck!

Despite all the heartbreak and betrayal going around, some ladies seem to have all the luck. Scarlett Johansson is one of them. While she generally manages to keep her personal matters out of the press, that doesn't keep the public from noticing the presence of her newest beau, French journalist Romain Dauriac. The two were spotted over the weekend cuddling and holding hands at a trendy (and private) New York City restaurant The Beatrice Inn.

But rumors are often swirling about the actress's romantic life. She's been loosely linked with some of the sexiest men in Hollywood including Josh Hartnet, Derek Jeter, Jared Leto, Sean Penn and even Justin Timberlake, after her (pre-Jessica) cameo in his What Goes Around Comes Around video in 2007.

At least one relationship is "on the record." Johansson was married to actor Ryan Reynolds back in 2008. In fact, the two had an affair that closely mirrored Reynolds' current relationship with Blake Lively - they dated for a little over a year and were wed in an ultra private ceremony. Hopefully the similarities end there as Johansson and Reynolds split soon after, though not before buying a 3 million dollar home together.

On or off the record, Johansson doesn't seem to be complaining. This romance may even stick. Her new man is the head of a "creative agency" and previously edited a French art magazine. She, of course, has the edge of a born-and-bred NYC woman and inherited her Danish architect-father's impeccable taste. If nothing else, the two must be having a lot of fun together.

Nobody's life is perfect, but it seems this starlet, Scarlet, is living up to the inscription of her latest tattoo. That's right, inked on her rib cage, just under her right arm is horse shoe! Framed with by two words that speak the truth: "lucky you."

As the French say, "bonne chance" to the new lovers!
