Maybe she's just not that into him.

Actress Scarlett Johansson, that is. If not, she wouldn't be the first.

A Rossville man who was the object of a 2010 restraining order requested by reality TV celebrity Kim Kardashian is now in a North Georgia jail for sending naked pictures of himself to a lawyer for Johansson.

Dennis Shaun Bowman sent about 60 emails to Kevin Yorn, a Glendale, Calif., attorney for Johansson, according to a Catoosa County Sheriff's Office incident report. Some of those emails contained pictures of Bowman, who is 29. And, in some of those pictures, Bowman is nude.

On Friday, the sheriff's office arrested Bowman, of 87 Belmeade Drive, on seven charges of distributing obscene materials. He remained in the Catoosa County Jail on Monday on a 4,500 bond.

Bowman's Twitter account is filled with messages to Johansson, 29, a Hollywood actress known for her roles in films such as "Lost in Translation," "Iron Man 2" and "He's Just Not That Into You."

Between July 28-29, he Tweeted at her more than 100 times.

This is not the first time Bowman has been arrested for contacting Johansson's attorney. In January, private investigator Jon Perkins told the Catoosa County Sheriff's Office that Bowman left 82 voicemails and more than 100 emails with Yorn's office in one week.

Perkins told police that Bowman thought he was dating Johansson, and that he needed Yorn's help to keep the relationship going. The sheriff's office charged Bowman with harassing phone calls.

Bowman has been in the news in the past for his obsession with another celebrity.

In January 2010, Kardashian filed for a restraining order against Bowman. According to the restraining order, he began Tweeting at her frequently in the fall of 2009, then moved from his Georgia home to Calabasas, Calif., to be near her, then began showing up at her events dressed like the Batman character The Joker.
