Well, it looks like Sean Penn has really moved on from his longtime girlfriend Charlize Theron. Penn was photographed with rumoured girlfriend “Friday Night Lights” actress Minka Kelly at a swanky Napa Valley restaurant. Read below for the full details.

According to SFGate, Kelly celebrated her 35th birthday with no other than Penn at French Laundry.

Sources also said that it was Penn who picked up the tab at the pricey restaurant. In fact, Kelly even posted a dessert photo on her Instagram with the caption, “Birthday festivities off to a pretty magical start.”

Kelly might have conveniently cropped out Penn in the picture but we all have inkling why “magical” is the appropriate term to use that night.

Theron ended her relationship with Penn after more than a year pf dating, but it seems like Penn was really in it for the long haul.

“I’m self-proclaimed bad at mathematics but I can do two plus two: 53 years old plus finally beginning to figure out why you haven’t been happy in a single relationship? It could seem too late,” Penn said in an interview with Esquire.

Well, can’t blame Penn if he’s starting to date again.

On the other hand, Kelly is no stranger to famous boyfriends. She previously dated Derek Jetter of the Yankees for three years.

Penn and Kelly met at a Haiti charity event.

Well then, folks, let’s see how this will go.
