Sean Penn made the Flag Day screening at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday a family affair. The 60-year-old actor posed on the red carpet with both his 30-year-old daughter, Dylan, and his 27-year-old son, Hopper.
Penn both directed and stars in Flag Day, and his real-life kids appear in the film as his character's children. Penn plays John Vogel, a father who lives a double life as a counterfeiter, bank robber and conman in order to provide for his daughter.
Dylan looked chic at the premiere in a little black dress with an eye-catching belt, while Hopper looked sharp in a black bowtie and suit. Penn shares Dylan and Hopper with his ex-wife, Robin Wright.
Last August, Penn married 29-year-old actress Leila George. During his appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers, he said they had a virtual ceremony due to the coronavirus pandemic but that his two children were present. George is the daughter of actor Vincent D'Onofrio and actress Greta Scacchi.
"We did a COVID wedding," Penn shared. "By that, I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom and we were at the house with my two children and her brother, and we did it that way."
