Nothing like date night in the City of Lights!

Scarlett Johansson and her boyfriend, Nate Naylor, headed out to dinner with friends in Paris Sunday night. For their evening out, the pair both kept it casual -- the bespectacled Johansson, 27, wore a scoop-neck t-shirt and showed off her toned legs in black shorts.

En route to the restaurant, Naylor and Johansson weren't shy about showing their affection for one another, though that wasn't always the case. Although the We Bought a Zoo star has been seeing NYC-based ad executive Naylor for nearly a year, she and Naylor didn't step out publicly together until late January.

In the May issue of Vogue, cover girl Johansson -- who, prior to meeting Naylor, briefly dated Sean Penn -- opened up about how her man is adjusting to his new life in the spotlight. See more photos of the lovebirds in Paris.

"It must be very strange for him," the Avengers actress, who divorced Ryan Reynolds in 2010, mused of her non-celebrity beau. "It's totally bizarre. It's an adjustment -- I mean, it's got to be an adjustment for him way more than it was for me at nineteen. But he's remarkably good about it."
