Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac attend NYC event together amid messy divorce
Just last week, French advertising executive Romain Dauriac had labelled his estranged wife Scarlett Johansson's work schedule as only allowing their daughter to be "raised by nannies and helpers" and she was lamenting humanity's "loss of compassion", but theirs might be a true Hollywood romance after all as they were pictured together in New York City on Wednesday night.
The pair, who wed in 2014 and have a three-year-old daughter Rose, are in the middle of a very public divorce, but the Avengers star put on something of a brave, albeit uncomfortable, face with Dauriac.
Johansson has pleaded for privacy out of respect for her daughter, saying: "As a devoted mother and private person and with complete awareness that my daughter will one day be old enough to read the news about herself, I would only like to say that I will never, ever be commenting on the dissolution of my marriage," she said in a statement.
And Dauriac issued a statement of his own condemning her divorce filingm, "It is unfortunate, especially for our daughter, that Scarlett filed in court and made our personal differences so public.
"I would implore her to withdraw her action promptly and to go back, as uncomfortable as it might be, to the negotiating table."
This was all just days before posing together for this picture.
Confused? You're not alone.
