While Scarlett Johansson took to the podium during the final night of the Democratic National Convention on Thursday to show her support for President Barack Obama, another famous face appeared to be giving the actress a little support, as well.

As seen in these exclusive photos, it's none other than Jared Leto, who was romantically linked to Johansson a few years back. But her rep assures us that despite what it may look like in the photos, this was a purely platonic encounter.

The two cozied next to each other while taking in the festivities along with a star-studded bunch including Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde, Zach Braff, Don Cheadle and Elizabeth Banks.

Scarlett's DNC speech targets young voters

As they watched the action unfold during the convention, Johansson and Leto could be seen holding hands, leaning against each other, conversing, laughing and taking a moment to snap a few pics of themselves.

At one point, the actor even playfully grabs ScarJo's ankle as she stands up.

Johansson's rep tells E! News, "Scarlett is still dating Nate [Naylor]. This is very innocent. Scarlett and Jared have remained friends, nothing more, nothing less. Let's concentrate on the DNC and her speech, which is exponentially more important."
