Photos began to emerged of Naylor and Johansson wandering around Manhattan this weekend with their arms entwined around each other like eager high schoolers. Naylor apparently tried to stay incognito under a hooded sweatshirt, hat and dark sunglasses, but to the New York tabloid press, he was easy prey.
Naylor is a freelance creative director and art director in Manhattan.
The New York Post reports that he has lived in Amsterdam for several years while working at various ad agencies including Wieden & Kennedy. Sources say Naylor is originally from Arizona and graduated from Westmont College in California.
A source tells told the Post that he and Johansson met about six months ago through mutual friends and started dating shortly after, but so far have tried to keep their romance out of the gossip print.
But on Saturday night, Johansson and Naylor were seen out having dinner with three friends at Bowery Hotel restaurant Gemma. According to the Post’s spy, “ScarJo was rubbing his back and kissing his neck. He was wearing a short- sleeve, V-neck T-shirt and had tattoos up his arm.”
British Celebrity Reporter Nigel Pandomonium, a columnist and regular contributor to IC said, “we all knew that Scarlett was seeing Nate. I saw them at a gallery earlier this month and told them they made a great couple. Nate is a great guy and you know my feelings for Scarlett.”
