Is Sean Penn trying to make Freida Pinto his next girlfriend? Ugh.


Sean Penn has been sort of desperate ever since his split with Charlize Theron. I believed – and I still believe – that Penn was looking to score a hot young actress girlfriend immediately so he could flaunt it in the media. Like, “Sean Penn moves on with Famous B-List Actress, 31.” And the subtext would be “there’s nothing wrong with Sean Penn, his HamFace is still desirable, Charlize is the one with the problem!”

He tried to score Minka Kelly – he bought dinner for Minka and her friends for her birthday – but it is believed that Minka shut it down. After that, he tried to score with Emmanuelle Vaugier and I think they probably legitimately went on a few dates. But maybe Penn thinks he needs someone with a bigger profile. Someone like… Freida Pinto?! Freida split with Dev Patel last December and there were some rumors she had moved on with an Indian billionaire, although she’s been playing her romantic life close to the vest following the Dev split. So maybe Sean thinks there’s an opening for a HamFace. NO FREIDA NO.

He recently split with long-term girlfriend Charlize Theron. And Sean Penn has been making the most of the single lifestyle, partying the night away at The Nice Guy bar in West Hollywood on Sunday alongside a host of pals to celebrate actress Freida Pinto’s 31st birthday.

The 55-year-old star was trying to keep a low-profile as he left the venue at the end of the night, before the birthday girl followed suit later on. The Mystic River actor looked dapper as ever in a dark suit and a navy shirt as he made his grand exit, only to be greeted by a mob of excitable female fans.

Freida was the last member of her party to leave the venue, sporting a cute and casual outfit for her big night on the town.

Well, it was a birthday party and it didn’t sound like an intimate, just-the-two-of-us event and they didn’t even leave together. Still, it does seem like Sean Penn is making sure that he gets a lot of (Ham)face-time with the younger, beautiful actresses. I do not believe Freida would be dumb enough to get with Sean Penn. Do you?

    Stay away from that one too, jerk! (and I’m not even her fan).

  2. Sarah (another one) says:

    He has a M.O. Didn’t he first get with Minka Kelly when he went to her birthday party and paid for a bunch of stuff?

  3. HH says:

    It’s not even about being dumb enough; it’s about who she likes. And there is so much judgement to be had if she is even interested in Sean Penn (or someone like him).

  4. Hannah says:

    Freda is a vegetarian she doesn’t eat ham!

    I don’t know if she’s dumb or not, but i do know that she might be needing a job, and Penn can be manipulative enough to try and promise all these, no offense, C-list actresses he’s been hanging around with, “something”. He knows that’s the only way he can get a grip, because, well, i don’t even have to explain it: look t him! The fact that Charlize dumped him without even blinking doesn’t help him and he looks kind of desperate. Also hanging out with Madonna makes him look like he really doesn’t know how to be alone.

  6. Jayna says:

    I think he’s back after Madonna. He showed up at her NYC concert last month, and now a few weeks later he shows up at her concert in Canada. And she dedicated a song to someone special in the audience, and it was a song she’s never sung live before.

    Secret lyrics

    Things haven’t been the same
    Since you came into my life
    You found a way to touch my soul
    And I’m never, ever, ever gonna let it go

    Happiness lies in your own hand
    It took me much too long
    To understand how it could be
    Until you shared your secret with me

      he needs madonna on his side because of the Lee Daniels sue. He went as far as writing in the legal papers that Madonna herself would testify in his favor, that he was never arrested for domestic violence. He’s a manipulative a**hole, I don’t even think that he has a real romantic interest in madonna.

      • FingerBinger says:

        Madonna and Sean have been friends for years. They went to Haiti. He went to her concert some years ago. They’ve been circling each other for years before the lawsuit.

      • alice says:

        yes, @fingerbinger. I’m aware they’ve been friends for years now but that doesn’t change a bit the meaning of my comment. He even wrote her notes recognizer her “work” and she was surprised enough to spill about it on one f her concerts. He’s working his a** extra now, to get her on his side, IMHO, because of the lawsuit. That’s at least what appears to me.

    Maybe she thinks the press attention would boost her stock..long time without a hit…but I’m thinking the story is overblown.

  8. alice says:

    PS: can somebody help this guy to get the right hair piece? he’s been trying for years now, poor thing and he always looks like he’s carrying a dead wet animal on his head. Charlize tried to convinced her to let the grey hair grown and own it, but as soon as she dumped him he added longer plugs and came back to dye brown that whole mess.

  9. Kelly says:

    Nooooooooo! Run, Freida, run!

  10. Saks says:

    Maybe he just likes to celebrate birthdays… :P

  11. Chloe says:

    She’s a terrible actress (though she was sweet in Slumdog) and her career has gone no where. Stunning but I think insecurity could make her do it if she’s feeling desperate.

  12. Priya says:

    Oh gawd. Dating that grumpy, old, self absorbed man? He doesn’t seem very kind. He seems at the very least emotionally abusive, prone to stonewalling, etc.

    He looks like a car salesman from the 70s. Or an Atlantic City casino owner. I can’t imagine wanting to kiss him, let alone sleep with him.

  13. Maria says:

    Well, she is a has-been Z lister who dated her teenage co-star in order to stay relevant. I do believe she would stoop low enough to date Sean Penn. Doesn’t matter what you think of him, he is a famous A listers while she is like an Indian Kim K.
