SCARLETT Johansson's new mystery man is 38-year-old advertising executive Nate Naylor, who the Hollywood beauty has been dating for about six months.

Photos emerged of Naylor and Johansson wandering around Manhattan at the weekend with their arms around each other.

Naylor apparently tried to stay incognito under a hooded sweatshirt, hat and dark sunglasses.

But the New York Post revealed that the tall, dark and handsome Naylor is a freelance creative director and art director in Manhattan.

He lived in Amsterdam for several years while working at various ad agencies.

Sources said he is originally from Arizona and graduated from Westmont College in California.

An insider told the Post Naylor and Johansson met about six months ago through mutual friends and started dating shortly after, but so far have tried to keep their romance low-key.

But on Saturday night, ScarJo and Naylor were spotted having a cozy dinner with three friends at Bowery Hotel restaurant Gemma.

A witness said: "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. "

Johansson, who will star as the superhero Black Widow in the upcoming movie The Avengers, married Safe House star Ryan Reynolds in 2008. They split in 2010.

She quickly rebounded with Sean Penn, who she dated for five months, until they called it off in June. Reynolds is now dating Gossip Girl star Blake Lively.

Press-shy Naylor was photographed with actress Kristen Johnston at the Atlantic Theater Company's spring gala in 2008.

Sources described Naylor as a nice guy, but added that he "keeps to himself."

Meanwhile, Johansson and Reynolds have put the home they once shared on the market for $3.6 million.

The 263 square metre mid-century house is situated in the Los Feliz Hills in Los Angeles and features four bedrooms and three bathrooms, Radar Online reported.

The eco-friendly home features solar panels, while the kitchen, living room and den all have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool, and the master suite has a private garden and outdoor bath.

The pair bought the home in 2008 for $2.9 million and listed it for sale on Monday.
