Don’t Sean Penn‘s kids look THRILLED to be hanging with their dad?
Sean Penn has two children with Robin Wright: 25-year-old Dylan Frances and 22-year-old Hopper Jack. According to Hopper, the name written on his birth certificate wasn’t his father’s first choice. Hopper tells Interview magazine that if the decision had been left up to his amazingly responsible father figure, his name would be Steak. Yes, if Sean had his way there’d be a human being out in the world named STEAK PENN. Why? Because Sean Penn apparently really loves steak. Cool.
“My dad wanted to name me Steak, the food, because he loves it so much. But my mom was never going to go for it.”
Thank goodness for Robin Wright, FOR SO MANY REASONS INCLUDING THIS ONE. I mean, I like steak, too, but I wouldn’t look into the eyes of my newborn child and say, hey, that might work for this HUMAN BABY.
So why Hopper instead? It’s not a deliciously bloody piece of meat, but Hopper says it was because his dad “idolized” Dennis Hopper, and that his mother claims he hopped in her stomach rather than kicked. Not a kicker? Might want to run a DNA test.
