Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans have been romantically linked after her split with husband, Romain Dauriac. The duo were apparently spotted getting close as they sat next to each other at the Oscars 2017.

A source told Star magazine: "Scarlett and Chris both asked to be seated next to each other at the ceremony. It sure looked like something was going on — he was whispering in her ear, she kept blushing. Timing is everything."

Meanwhile, Johansson is currently gearing up for the custody battle of her two-year-old daughter Rose after her split from Dauriac.

The Lucy star had recently said that she does not believe that humans are meant to be in a monogamous relationship. During an interview with Playboy magazine, she said: "I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it's a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing. I don't think it's natural to be a monogamous person. I might be skewered for that, but I think it's work. It's a lot of work."

"And the fact that it is such work for so many people—for everyone—the fact of that proves that it is not a natural thing. It's something I have a lot of respect for and have participated in, but I think it definitely goes against some instinct to look beyond," she added.
