Having split from husband Ryan Reynolds last year she has become one of the most eligible young ladies in Hollywood.
So when Scarlett Johansson walked the Oscar red carpet on Sunday night the question on everyone's lips was who she'd bring as her plus one.
However the 26-year-old star was clearly intent on enjoying the evening with friends and turned up with her agent Joe Machota.
The pair were also spotted at the Vanity Fair after party and a spokesman told Us magazine that the relationship is strictly platonic.
The Iron Man 2 actress has most recently been linked to Sean Penn.
She has also been seen in the company of Saturday Night Live comedian Jason Sudukis and He's Just Not That Into You co-star Justin Long since her split from Ryan.
