I imagine finding out your boyfriend once dated Scarlett Johansson would be a strange experience ("Omg. Her?"), but finding out while perusing Tumblr and seeing a picture of the pair pop up would add a whole new level of crazy. This is exactly what happened to Lena Dunham who found out her boyfriend Jack Antonoff dated Johansson while checking out Old Loves, a Tumblr full of photos of former celebrity couples. It's basically a bunch of pictures that make you go, "No way! They dated?!" (For example, I just found out Lenny Kravitz has dated both Kylie Minogue and Vanessa Paradis. "No way!") 

In a recent interview with Grantland's Bill Simmons, Dunham spoke about finding a picture of Antonoff and Johansson on the website. "The craziest thing that ever happened to me, was like, Old Loves is my passion, I check it like once a week and I was going through it and I saw my boyfriend and his girlfriend from high school… I know I shouldn't spill that in a public forum, but you can Google it." Reportedly, Johansson and Antonoff dated in 2001 when they were both 17-year-olds attending New York City's Professional Children's School. 

Dunham went on to say, "I was like, 'My mind is going to explode.' I really did think I was hallucinating. It would be like seeing my parents… She's beautiful, he's beautiful, but it was just so surreal to be looking through this blog that gives me so much pleasure and then there's my boyfriend."

As for the picture itself, Johansson is still super recognizable, but Antonoff looks quite a bit different than he does now — 13 years will do that. He doesn't have the black-framed glasses he's always wearing nowadays and his hair is much… larger.
