No Penn for Portman

There were alarming reports that originated from Star Magazine about them making out, Natalie Portman and Sean Penn and in an uncharacteristic move, Portman has released a statement telling Extra that:

"Sean Penn is a friend and colleague. The reports that we are romantically involved are completely untrue. I normally do not respond to rumors about my private life, however, this repeatedly fabricated story has forced me to do so."

As she noted, Natalie is not usually one to stay on top of tabloid shenanigans. That she went out of her way to dismiss these rumours says a lot. She does NOT want you thinking she’d hook up with Sean Penn. For many reasons. Mostly because it feels wrong. And a little because she needs to be with Ryan Gosling.

What the f-ck is taking so long?

Well, she’s shooting a movie in LA. He’s filming in New York. Geography. Schedule. Timing. Patience to make sure it’s right when it starts. Let’s go with that.
