Who Is Sean Penn's New Girlfriend?

Scarlett Johansson, who? Penn has reportedly been seeing up-and-coming producer Shannon Costello since July

Sean Penn has a new lady in his life -- and it sounds like they've got a lot in common. People reports that Penn, 51, has been seeing Shannon Costello, 26, since the beginning of July. The Tree of Life actor met the lovely brunette while working on something close to his heart: his J/P Haitian Relief Organization. Costello is the former communications director of the charitable organization also an emerging producer who has worked on the documentary Waiting for Superman and the ABC News show 20/20.

Penn and his new gal (formerly misidentified by the press as Stacey Koplin) have been spending a lot of time together on both coasts this summer, hanging out on the beach in Malibu, Calif., and dining in fancy restaurants in Miami. (After a recent dinner at Japanese restaurant Nobu, the paparazzi snapped the casually-dressed pair holding hands.) They've also been seen doing plenty of ordinary things together around Los Angeles, like running errands and jogging. Star couples: They're just like us!

In fact, the couple seems remarkably un-scandalous... except for the fact that they reportedly started seeing each other less than a month after Penn's breakup with Scarlett Johansson.

According to various sources, Penn (recently divorced from longtime spouse Robin Wright) broke off his three-month relationship with Johansson, 26, because he wasn't ready to get serious. We'll have to see if this new romance -- with a woman the same age as Johannson, we've noted -- will outlast the three-month mark.
