Sean Penn, 59, made a rare public appearance with his girlfriend Leila George, 27, at his starry charity gala in Los Angeles.

On Wednesday night, the couple attended Penns 10th annual gala benefiting CORE (formerly known as J/P Haitian Relief Organization) to help areas devastated by natural disasters. Guests included Naomi Campbell, Julia Roberts, Karolna Kurkov and Leonardo DiCaprio, who sat next to Penn and George without his own much-younger girlfriend, 22-year-old Camila Morrone.

Penn began courting George  an actress and the daughter of actors Vincent DOnofrio and Greta Scacchi  in 2016. Photos of the pair sharing steamy PDA went viral in October of the same year while he was reportedly still seeing a mystery woman.

The low-key couple rarely step out together, but were spotted August 2019 on a luxe yacht double date with DiCaprio and Morrone, where Penn greeted the  Once Upon a Time & in Hollywood actor with a big bear hug.
