Sean Penn is banging Vincent D’Onofrio’s 24-year-old daughter Leila George


It feels like Sean Penn has been searching for his next big love affair since Charlize Theron ghosted him so hard last year. Penn tried to make something with Minka Kelly happen, but it seems like that was a no-go. There were other sightings with some “mystery” 20-somethings too. But yesterday, some photos came out of Sean in Hawaii with a young woman. At first, no one could ID her and all of the sites were running headlines like “Sean Penn makes out with mystery blonde” and “Ham-Face Attacks Innocent Young Woman” (okay, I’m only teasing about that last one). So who is this young woman being seduced by Senor Ham? She’s Vincent D’Onofrio’s daughter. Hmm…

Sean Penn has a new woman in his life — and she’s got a famous dad! The actor was spotted locking lips with Leila George, the 24-year-old daughter of Law & Order: Criminal Intent star Vincent D’Onofrio, in Hawaii on Wednesday. In photos that surfaced Thursday, George, an actress and Australia native, looked cozy swimming with Penn, 56, in the Oahu ocean. Before getting out of the water, the actor held her face in his hands and landed a kiss. They were joined on the getaway by Australian actress Gracie Otto.

George was born in 1992 to D’Onofrio — who recently starred in The Magnificent Seven — and his then-girlfriend Greta Scacchi. George recently starred in the TV movie Mother, May I Sleep with Danger alongside James Franco and Tori Spelling. Her new film, The Long Home, also stars Ashton Kutcher, Josh Harnett, Robin Lord Taylor and Franco, who is also directing.

Penn, meanwhile, split with Charlize Theron in June 2015. The former couple were first photographed together in Hawaii in 2010. He was previously married to Robin Wright from 1996 to 2010, and Madonna from 1985 to 1989. Penn has two children from his marriage to Wright: daughter Dylan Frances, 25, and Hopper Jack, 23.

Didn’t Greta Scacchi also have an affair/relationship with Daniel Day Lewis? Greta had great taste in men, because Vincent D’Onofrio is amazing. He’s like Orson Welles to me – I’m attracted to him even when he’s a lot heavier. I don’t know if Vincent has much of a relationship with Leila, although I think I remember hearing over the years that he did try to be involved, even though he and Greta fell out rather spectacularly back in the day. Still, I think it’s interesting that Leila doesn’t use her father’s name. Leila D’Onofrio would sound nice, but I bet everyone would be like, “Oh, I loved your dad in Full Metal Jacket.”

Anyway, Leila is absolutely trying to make the most out of her dalliance with a Ham-Face. People is already running a “getting to know Leila George” piece, and my guess is that Leila will get some auditions out of this. Is it worth it? Would you bang a Ham-Face (who is 32 years older than you) just to further your career?

      And plus 50 shades of wrong and ewwww

      • Little Darling says:

        I remember when he dated the folksinger Jewel, and at that point he was a good 14 years older than her. It was when he was separated from Robin Penn, and she was my
        age at the time, 19 or 20, and I thought he was so old and gross back then. I’m 40 now and my opinion of HAM FACE (love you Kaiser for that one!) hasn’t changed.

    • susie says:

      he has a daughter OLDER than his girlfriend! ewwwww……

      • annaloo. says:

        God, he is disgusting. I cannot with men like him! These guys preach such social awareness and do-gooding in the world, but it’s obvious they are not into seeing women beyond 20-something playthings. Ugh. It’s sickening. Oh well, gurl, I hope you get a bump in your career.

      • beebee says:

        People have kids at all kinds of different ages. What about those who marry or date someone a mere 20 years younger, but the older individual in question became a parent in their teens? Would you use that to discredit them?

        Not the case with Penn and this girl, but I wanted to make that point.

        Who I really cringe for are teenage parents whose children grow up to date or marry someone 30+ years their senior. Madonna was 14 years older than the mother of her ex boyfriend Jesuz Luz, and Clint Eastwood was 16 years older than the mother of his ex wife Dina Ruiz.

    • Riley says:

      Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!! He is disgusting!

    • beebee says:

      He dated Jewel in 1995 during one of his many premarital “estrangements” from Robin Wright. So tacky that Robin had two children by him, broke up, THEN finally married him after 8 years of on-again/off-again periods. What was the point?

    • AuntSass says:

      Megan- I literally just choked on my coffee so bad I had a coughing attack. That comment is a perfect summation. Brilliant. Lmfao!!!!

    • Kate says:

      50 shades of barf.

  2. lisa says:

    oh dear, if i was detective robert goren i’d be very unhappy

    • Lisa says:

      Ham-Face better watch his back if he tries anything with Leila. I’m sure Vincent isn’t very happen either. What father would be?

      • Kelly says:

        If we’re lucky, Vincent will give Sean Penn the paternal ass whuppin’ he’s needs and we want to see.

    • Holly hobby says:

      She resembles her a mom a lot. I remember Greta from Presumed Innocent. I do hope Vincent kicks ham face in the rear.

  3. HappyMom says:

    She’s a beautiful girl. She really could do so much better than him. Daddy issues?

    • Secret squirrel says:

      She looks a lot like her mother Greta, also gorgeous.

      This relationship is just wrong though. I don’t care about the age gap, but Sean is a known problem.

    • MsGoblin says:

      I love how People magazine is describing her as “paving her own way” in Hollywood.

      Yeah, right.

      • Squiggisbig says:

        I think I would ride my dad’s coattails for fame before I would ride that honey baked ham

      • ell says:

        hahaha, she’s scott eastewood 2.0 but slightly worse, at least isn’t f-ing sean penn.

      • Aussie girl says:

        SQUIGGISBIG for the win!!!

      • delorb says:

        LOL Sounds like she’s using her father’s name AND Sean. But I ain’t mad at her. If that’s how the game is played, then play it!

      • Kitten says:


      • Justjj says:

        Hey in Hollywood many ways have been paved with sexual favors… I don’t think I would do it. Ham face just gets under my skin, mostly because he seems to treat women like sh*t but also because I think he’s full of sh*t and his acting is over hyped in recent years. Plus he sounded like a tool talking about that Bob Honey book. I get being confused when you’re 24 though. She’ll probably look back and cringe.

      • Lahdidahbaby says:

        Squiggisbig, you are for sure the champion of the day! 👏

      • FF says:

        Nepotism IS “paving your own way” in Hollywood, as they see it. I don’t think they know any other way.

        Not least, having two famous name parents gets you through a few more doors and at least get you seen more than people without it.

        Wonder how long before she starts ghosting him?

    • ichsi says:

      She has an AMAZING body and yes, it’s super gross, I just wish Sean Penn would go away, but I looked up Greta Scacchi again and she’s married to her cousin? Whut? All of this is just… ew.

  4. BeBeA says:


  5. It'sJustBlanche says:

    This probably won’t be the career boost she’s hoping for.

    Also: ewww.

  6. ell says:

    i was looking forward to this post since i saw the pics yesterday on the daily mail. i mean, it’s not like we needed any more confirmation sean penn is gross, but so far at least he’s dated younger but age appropriate, this one’s younger than his daughter.

    on a different note it’s a mystery to me why any woman of any age would date him.

    • milla says:

      she is also gross. she is an adult. they share the grossness (is that even a word???)

      i get she wants attention and he seems charming and intelligent. also, he wants to feel young, so its a win-win or gross-gross in this case.

      • ell says:

        ‘he seems charming and intelligent’ he really doesn’t though? he’s among those few hollywood men who puzzle me as to why they get women at all.

      • Lisa says:

        More like he has clout in Hollywood and knows the right people who could help her career. Yuck!

      • Timbuktu says:

        I’m with you, ell. I’m not saying he *IS* that way, but to me, he always looks very mean and nasty. He’d have to actually be a major sweetheart to get me to overcome first impressions, and I somehow doubt he is one. But he definitely doesn’t “seem” charming or intelligent to me.

    • milla says:

      i was saying it in a superficial way. as in, he is the type who will talk about books, all the world tragedies, quote some big leaders, big poems, but has no depth. he is playing the artist/humanitarian card. superficial charm at its finest. that is the only explanation of how he got beautiful women who are also famous.

      • Timbuktu says:

        I don’t see him talking about books or poems either. Tragedies – yes, with a lot of cussing and a lot of arrogant opinions.

  7. Easypeasy123 says:

    I live in Dallas and often see young women with gross old men. You could do way worse than Penn (physically anyway) if you’re banging someone for money and influence.

  8. Betsy says:

    That’s such a gross word.

  9. Neelyo says:

    I saw Penn on Late Night with Colbert recently and I was worried for his health. He’s seriously shaky and seemed 20 years older than his actual age.

    I was wondering if this was the daughter of Scacchi. I’ve always loved her. She’s so gorgeous, aging naturally and just like this sophisticated European icon. That said, the daughter has none of the interesting features of either of her parents.

    • Roxanne says:

      Loved daddy Vincent as Thor in Adventures in Babysitting.

    • Ally8 says:

      Ditto. Noticed the literal trembling when he was on Bill Maher. Early stages of Parkinson’s, perhaps, or if he’s still drinking in earnest, the shakes?

      Anyway, I love Greta Scacchi and I’m mortified for how awful it must be for her to see her young daughter with this aged mean creep.

      • PunkyMomma says:

        Saw him on Maher, too, and though he seemed a bit shaky and fragile.

        (Maybe it wasn’t such a hot idea to visit El Chapo.)

  10. Mannori says:

    So gross, both of them, not only him.
    And is also worth notice how this girl, specially in the pics on the beach without makeup on, resembles so much to Robin Wright in her State of Grace days, which is the movie where Sean fell in love with her.

    Seems like the old prune is still searching a Princess Bride lookalike in every woman he had after her. It’s been talked also about the physical and personality resemblance between Robin and Charlize too: two icy, cold, blonde b*tches.

  11. Naya says:

    The only consolation I take from this is that Sean likes his women blonde and assertive. Madonna, Robin, Scarlet and Charlize are anything but wilting wall flowers. When I see a girl that young I always worry that the guy will steam roll her, so heres hoping she is tougher than she looks.

    • OhDear says:

      Given his (alleged) history, my worry is that he likes them assertive so that he can feel more accomplished when he acts in a domineering role over them. I hope she’s ok/will be ok/will get out quickly and safely.

  12. Lara K says:

    I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

  13. Itchyandweird says:

    Sean Penn likes to present himself as this idealistic crusader but I guess that doesn’t extend to women. “Gross” is right.

    • Soror Bro says:

      You could say that about a lot of Hollywood liberals. Most of them talk the humanitarian talk but they’re really just shallow capitalists.

  14. Jusayin says:

    Think about that for a second. He was 32 years old when she was born. 😝

    Love Vincent D’Onofrio. He’s currently awesome in Daredevil. So scary in that role.
    And he’s a couple of years older than Sean Penn. And Sean Penn’s daughter is a year older than his current girlfriend. I’m sorry that’s just too much for me. Blech.

  15. Lex says:

    Even if I hated my father more than anything, if being openly related to him could help my showbiz career, I’d go there. But never, ever, ever would I stoop to effing a known abuser and a geriatric and irrelevant one at that. Gross, gross, grosz.

  16. Alix says:

    Vincent D’Onofrio is TEH HAWTNESS at any size.

    Leila does look just like her mother, she’s very pretty. Anyone know where her surname’s from? Is it just a stage name? Why on earth she’s stooping to the level/gross factor of Sean Penn is beyond me.

  17. ElleBee says:

    I Am Sam is one of my favourite movies and I refuse to let it be tainted by the fact that Sean Penn is a creep V_V

  18. Hejhej says:

    Greta Scacchi is such a beautiful woman and a good actress too.

    As for the coupling – yuck. Yuck. It’s especially yuck because the girl looks so much like Robin. I guess he never got over her for real.

  19. Marie says:

    I never get why young women waste their youth on old men.

    • ElleBee says:

      Idk why women waste their youth on THESE TYPES of old men. I know of relationships where the man is significantly older but it works out fine. But Sean Penn…..uuuugh waste of time for sure

  20. Brunswickstoval says:

    As for Scacchi having great taste in men. Wasn’t there a scandal when she married her first cousin? Going from a very vague memory now so am sketchy on details. Will google

    Ok so they had a kid together. Tore her family apart

  21. AG-UK says:

    @ Kaiser I thought it was Isabella Adjani and DDL, who he dumped by fax or something (oh back in the day the FAX) when she was preg. Can’t remember the full story

  22. Pandy says:

    She’s a year younger than his daughter FFS. Grow up Sean. You’ve become a joke now.

  23. Bess says:

    Sean Penn is repulsive in every way.

  24. anon says:

    Do you think he can maintain an erection without Viagra?

    This seems like an opportunistic “relationship.” Yuck

    • Mannori says:

      specially considering his obvious use of steroids, HGH, plus that “healthy” strife of his: smoke, boozing, blowing….I’d say yes, he needs extra help….yuck

  25. Green Is Good says:


  26. JeanGenie says:

    Penn’s body looks a lot better than my 35 year old husband’s.
    So there’s that.

    • Shark Bait says:

      It doesn’t match his” hard living” face.

      • JeanGenie says:

        Yep. Definitely a lights out for sex scenario with that dude.
        But I suspect it would be good sex… You know, if it were with a grown woman.

      • jinni says:

        @JeanGenie: I get there is a major age difference between these two, but when did 24 year old women stop being grown women? At that age most women have already graduated college, are working at their career, have their own place, are old enough to drink and vote, so what about the age doesn’t read grown?

        I don’t get why people love to infantilize women that are in May-December relationship so much around here. Sure she’s young, but she isn’t underage or even just became legal and I doubt anyone is forcing her to be with him.

      • jinx says:

        A woman’s bod is not the same at 24 than say at 42. Everything changes actually. Life experiences. Sexuality. Self awareness. Of course a woman at 24 is ‘grown up’ but she is still at the very beginnings of her life as a woman. Big difference. Older men will bone young women and vice versa until the end of times. Literally, the only way to stop this behaviour is if the sun exploded.


    Eeeewwww, she’s my age and he’s older than both of my parents. He’s not even a ‘well preserved’ or charming older man. *barfs*

  28. Jeanette says:

    The “ham face” description makes me laugh waayy too hard!

  29. MrsBPitt says:

    The only way I could bang Penn is if I was totally drunk, and he had duct tape over his mouth, and a paper bag covering his face! Umm, on second thought, not even then! Nope…

  30. tealily says:

    Look at the body language in that Daily Mail photograph. She does NOT look like she’s as into that kiss as he is.

  31. spidey says:

    I’m older than him and he gives me the creeps.

  32. dodgy says:

    She can do a lot better. Sean Penn is ugh.

  33. Jayna says:

    Desperate, young, nobody actress using Sean for pap attention. She wouldn’t get this kind of coverage riding daddy’s coattails. It’s being on the arm of some famous a actor or pap target actor to stir up interest.

    Sean is pathetic. Twenty-four? LOL

    I adore Vincent.

  34. badoodie says:

    I’m sure Leila’s mother isn’t batting an eye at this since Greta has a son by her first cousin.

  35. moon says:

    Vincent D’onofrio is one of the nicest guys in the industry actually, he’s very humble and mentors a lot of young actors in NYC. And I don’t mean mentor in the casting couch way, he gives free acting classes when he has the time. I’m sure no father would be happy seeing his daughter date someone twice her age, especially when that someone has a terrible record of hitting women. Let’s hope Leila is a smart girl who milks this for all its worth and then gets the hell out.

  36. Freyja says:

    Sorry, but this is disgusting. He’s so sleezy and has the face of a pimply ass.

    His daughter is older than his gf. I wonder how that makes her feel.

  37. Peanutbuttr says:

    If the sugar daddy was Gianluca Vacchi, I’d be the first in line. Otherwise, no.

  38. Jenny says:

    Yuck! He is so gross in every way, always was. Why on earth would any woman, regardless of her age, want to bang that abomination??

  39. Kassie says:

    Nothing against older men, but this one? Eww

  40. Penelope says:

    Never knew Greta also has a son with her first cousin! Interesting.

  41. lucy says:

    “banging”? Ouch! A rather crass choice of wording, yes? Is the Donald Trump coarseness leaking into our tasteful blog? (Feeling emotional—it’s been a rough week!)

    • caitlinK says:

      Pretentious comment, yes? Sorry for your rough week; amazingly, others have them too–and still allow people to use the words they choose to w/out criticism/questioning of their morality or taste.

  42. Lis says:

    If I was Vincent (and I do love him as an actor) I would go and punch Sean Penn in his dirty old man face. What is wrong with men who can’t date women even remotely close to their own age??? Yuck.
