Sean Penn has a new lady love — and she’s got a famous father!
On Wednesday, Oct. 5, the 56-year-old actor was spotted kissing 24-year-old Leila George, the daughter of “The Magnificent Seven” star Vincent D’Onofrio. In the photos obtained by Page Six, George and Penn looked cozy as they swam together in the Oahu ocean. After they finished swimming, Penn cradled George’s face in his hands and smooched her. The rumored new couple was joined by Australian actress Gracie Otto during their getaway.
This isn’t the first time Penn has been spotted romancing a lady in Hawaii. Penn and “Mad Max: Fury” star Charlize Theron were first photographed together in Hawaii in 2010. They parted ways in June last year. Before getting together with Theron, Penn was previously married to “House of Cards” actress Robin Wright from 1996 to 2010, and Madonna from 1985 to 1989. The actor shares two children with Wright: daughter Dylan Frances, 25, and Hopper Jack, 23.
As for his new lady love, there’s not much known about George as of now. According to People, George is the daughter of D’Onofrio with his ex-wife, actress Greta Scacchi. She is an up-and-coming actress who has appeared in a few TV projects. The Australian actress recently starred in the TV movie “Mother, May I Sleep With Daughter” alongside Tori Spelling and James Franco. George played Leah, the daughter of Spelling’s character.
George also has some theater experience. She made her theater debut in the Perth Black Swan State Theatre Company’s production of Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull” in 2014. Her Australian-Italian mother appeared alongside George during the production. “I said at the start it was a dream to be able to work with her and it has been,” George told Perth Now of starring in the production with Scacchi.
George will soon appear in the upcoming film “The Long Home,” which also stars Josh Harnett, Ashton Kutcher, Robin Lord Taylor and Franco. The latter is directing the movie based on William Gay's novel of the same title.
