Despite rumors, Sean Penn and Charlize Theron are not yet engaged. The 38-year old Theron’s 18 karat diamond ring snapped in a photo was a $4, 900 gift to herself. The couple were spotted on a Hawaiian beach last year, and have appeared at several Hollywood gatherings, including the premiere for Theron’s film “A Million Ways to Die, ” the Met gala and the after party for the Oscars. If the couple do tie the knot, it will be the first marriage for Theron, and Sean Penn’s third time around, after his marriage to Madonna in the 80s and his divorce form Robin Wright in 2010.
Model and now actress, Dylan Penn, Sean’s daughter with Wright, is continuing the family tradition after placing #68 in Maxim’s Hot 100 in 2014 with a role in her first major motion picture, Condemned, set for release in 2015. This horror flick will cast her along side Lydia Hearst, daughter of Patty Hearst, and is the project of fashion Mogul Eli Morgan Gesner, who is the founder of Zoo York, which sells skateboards and skateboard fashion apparel. Gesner directed Skateboard Jungle a tribute to his passion for small wheels.

In 2014, Sean Penn was the recipient of This World: The Value Network’s Champion of Jewish Justice Award for his self-sacrifice in helping Orthodox Jewish entrepreneur, Jacob Ostreicher, escape from a Bolivian prison. Ostreicher was imprisoned without charges and in inhumane conditions since 2011. As it turns out, Sean Penn’s paternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Russia and Lithuania. Penn’s receiving the award is thought to be in part because of an article Rabbi Shmueli Boteach wrote after Ostreicher’s escape: Sean Penn, My Unlikely Hero”:
Rabbi Boteach wrote: “Penn had no obligation to risk his life for Ostreicher. I’d like to think he was moved by the simplest of reasons – to save another human being in need.”
