Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn are no longer dating, a source tells PEOPLE.

Speculation about the pair began after Johansson did not attend the Cannes Film Festival with Penn for his movie The Tree of Life. She has been working on The Avengers in New Mexico, reprising her role of Black Widow from Iron Man 2.

Johansson, 26, and Penn, 50, made headlines when they took a whirlwind trip to Cabo San Lucas after being spotted getting flirty together during a lunch date in Los Angeles.

The pair attended a White House Correspondents’ Dinner party in Washington D.C. in April and had been spotted in a series of cozy outings in L.A.

The reason for the split wasn’t immediately known. Reps declined to comment.

Now that the media frenzy has died down between the 4 month relationship between Scarlett and Sean, I’d like to put my two cents in. It bothered me that ever since Scarlett and Sean had started dating that just about everyone out there had already decided the two weren’t right for each other. The way I look at it, that’s a decision to be made between Scarlett and Sean and not the whole world. Scarlett and Sean should be remembered for all the charitable work they’re doing around the world to help others out that are less fortunate and not for what may or may not have happened during their short relationship together. I’m glad they will continue their friendship and I wish them all the best!
