We wish this was #FAKENEWS... but it isn't.
THIS IS HOW DICTATORSHIPS START!!!
CNN immediately (and rightfully) protested the decision saying:
Now that's how you make a red carpet debut!
On Thursday, Sean Penn and his girlfriend Leila George D'Onofrio hit the red carpet at an event hosted at the LACMA in El Lay. This appearance is BIG because it marks the first time the twosome have attended an event as a couple. Well, well!
And the duo certainly proved they know how to make a statement as the Mother, May I Sleep with Danger? actress donned a red wig next to Penn who was casually cool in a denim button-down.
As you surely know, Sean and Leila made headlines earlier this week when they were spotted locking lips while enjoying the water in Hawaii. LOVES it!
We're honestly so happy to see Sean out and about with his latest squeeze as he didn't necessarily have the easiest breakup with Charlize Theron. While Miz Theron has since clarified what exactly went down between herself and the Mystic River star, their split still didn't seem like a pleasant experience. Just sayin'!
What do YOU think of Sean new's 24-year-old GF? Are you a fan?
