When you're the child of divorced parents, it can sometimes be a struggle welcoming your mom or dad's new partner into the family. Unless, you know, your pops happens to bring home an Oscar-winning former model who's known as one of the most badass women in the biz.
Sean Penn did just that, and daughter Dylan couldn't be more thrilled about his relationship with Charlize Theron.
"She's awesome," the 23-year-old model told Us Weekly of her father's girlfriend. "They've been away for months working together in South Africa, so I haven't seen much of either of them. She's great and they're amazing together. As long as my dad's happy, I'm happy for both of them."
Apparently, Theron has a special skill that Ms. Penn finds especially endearing.
"Well, she's brilliant for one thing," Penn said. "And, she's the only woman since my mom [Robin Wright] who can shut my dad up. The only woman! That is a f---ing challenge so...She's a powerhouse."
Respect. Clearly, Papa Penn has a thing for strong women. Show that dude who's boss, Charlize. (Us Weekly)
