The two-time Academy Award-winning Actor has been seen around Hollywood with another actor's daughter. After being spotted together in trendy Los Angeles restaurants and exclusive hot spots, Sean Penn seems to have found a connection with Vincent D'Onofrio's 24-year-old daughter Leila George D'Onofrio. E! News reported that Penn and D'Onofrio have been seeing each other for a couple of months. Leila George D'Onofrio, daughter of "Magnificent Seven" actor Vincent D'Onofrio, posted a picture of her and Penn together in a recording studio on Instagram last week. 

Penn recently broke off from a year and a half long relationship with actress Charlize Theron last year in July.

Despite rumors that Theron "ghosted" on Penn, the "Mad Max: Fury Road" actor clarified the breakup in an interview with E! News. 

"We were in a relationship and then it didn't work anymore. And we both decided to separate. That's it," Theron said. 

Penn also split from actress Robin Wright in 2010 after a fourteen-year marriage. 

What does the future hold for Sean Penn and Leila  D'Onofrio?

Since Sean Penn's relationship with D'Onofrio is relatively new, it's difficult to say where it's heading. Leila George D'Onofrio seems to be following her father's acting pursuits.

She recently starred in the Lifetime movie "Mother, May I Sleep with Danger" with James Franco. Leila joined Franco again in "The Long Home", which is slated for a 2017 release. 

As for Penn, the Academy Award-winning actor recently lent his voice for an animated role in "The Angry Birds Movie", and audiences will see him again in "The Professor and the Madman" with Mel Gibson and Natalie Dormer. He will also appear as Andrew Jackson in the historical miniseries "American Lion" next year. 

What's missing from this story is Vincent D'Onofrio's opinion on his daughter's new relationship with fellow actor Sean Penn.

Whether he's approving of his daughter dating a man who's only one year younger than him is still uncertain, but a comment on the blossoming relationship should be expected within the next few months.
