Justin & Scarlett Get Steamy In New Video

Scarlett Johansson may have squashed rumors that she's dating Justin Timberlake (she told E!'s Giuliana DePandi on the Grammy red carpet that they're just friends and have "a lot of friends in common") but it's fun to watch their dramatic relationship play out in his new video.

The actress makes out with the singer in a pool in the video for "What Goes Around ... Comes Around," which debuted on iTunes last week. There's lots of kissing, whispering and canoodling going on between the pair, who play a new couple in the video.

In one scene, Timberlake tells friends that Johansson's character is "the one." He later finds her making out with his buddy, which leads to a high speed car chase that leaves one of them dead.

"We turned the video into a short film," Timberlake told MTV recently. "It's a drama. It's serious."

The video was directed by Sam Baer, whose credits include Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Blind Melon's "Rain" and Green Day's "Boulevard of Broken Dreams."

Since his split from Cameron Diaz, there have been reports linking the pop singer with Johansson.

They reportedly got close at the Hennessey Super Bowl party at Mokai, where, spies tell the New York Post, "they were talking, dancing, holding hands all night — it was very cozy."

Us Weekly reported last month that Timberlake's decision to cast Johansson in the video pushed his relationship with Diaz to the breaking point.

"(Cameron) could not believe he went behind her back to put her in the video," a friend of Timberlake's told the magazine. "Cameron was very jealous of Scarlett."

Diaz and Timberlake announced the end of their relationship Jan. 11. The couple had dated since 2003.
