Steven R. McQueen made headlines this week when he stepped out on the town with girlfriend Dylan Penn, confirming the Vampire Diaries star is dating the 22-year-old model. The two were spotted kissing at an L.A. charity gala, and now we want to know everything about this stunner! Here are five things to know about the girl who stole Steven’s heart...
Her father is Sean Penn. Dylan has not one, but two famous parents. Her father is actor Sean Penn (maybe you’ve heard of him?), whose gala she and Steven were attending when they were photographed together. Apparently, Sean is totally fine with his daughter’s relationship with Steven: "Steven had met Sean before the event last night," a source told Us Weekly. "[Sean] loves his daughter, really whatever makes her happy is fine with him."
Her mother is Robin Wright. Dylan’s mom is the gorgeously talented Robin Wright. We will always have a special place in our hearts for Robin for her turn as Buttercup in Princess Bride, but she is perhaps better known these days for her killer portrayal of Claire Underwood in House of Cards, for which she recently won a Golden Globe. Robin recently shared her own happy relationship news, announcing her engagement to actor Ben Foster.
She may have dated Robert Pattinson. Steven isn’t the first vampire-themed man to have on her arm. Or so the rumors say. Dylan rose into the public eye last year for allegedly dating Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson. Who knows what really happened, but it seems Dylan has graduated from vampire to vampire hunter. Upgrade!
She is a gorgeous model. Dylan definitely inherited her parents good looks. She landed a photo spread in the January 2014 edition of GQ, and her mother’s model genetics definitely shine through. The buxom blonde looks like a natural in the beach spread.
She’s a Woody Allen fan. Or at least, she used to be. Apparently, the filmmaker’s trademark humor was enough to frighten away her fears when she was young. In GQ, she fondly shares her memory of the first time watching a Woody Allen film: “It was the first night I was left home alone — my brother wasn't there and both my parents were going out, and I was really freaked out,” said Dylan. “And I was pretty young, like 10, 11. My mom tucked me in her bed and put on Annie Hall and said, ‘Don't worry, it'll be fine.’”
