Sean Penn’s son Hopper is not dating Jack Nicholson’s daughter Lorraine, despite a false report. The bogus article was seemingly concocted because the legendary actors are close friends. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.

According to RadarOnline, Hopper, 24, and Lorraine, 27, are “Tinseltown’s hottest new couple” who’ve been “inseparable” ever since both attended the AFI Fest in November. An alleged “insider” tells the site, “Lorraine made the first move. She’s quite an intense character who knows what she wants, while he’s a bad boy like his dad. They’re perfect together.”

The outlet’s questionable source goes on to say that the pair’s relationship is “pretty serious and well known among their close friends,” but their dads have a difference of opinion on the supposed romance. “Sean is pretty encouraging,” says the suspicious insider, who further contends that Nicholson is “a little more cautious” when it comes to his daughter spending time with the actor’s son.

However, this bogus narrative seems to have been concocted simply because Penn’s son and Nicholson’s daughter posed together on the red carpet at the AFI Fest (see above). The reason for this is quite simple: Hopper co-stars in her short film Life Boat, which screened at the festival. The two also co-starred together in the 2015 short film Endings, Inc.

Additionally, Hopper and Lorraine have known each other since childhood as their dads are good pals and frequent collaborators. Penn directed Nicholson in the movies The Crossing Guard and The Pledge, and the two are often seen hanging out together around Los Angeles.

It seems RadarOnline simply jumped on the opportunity to romantically link the children of two Hollywood legends because they were spotted at an event together. It should be noted, the webloid often published false articles about Penn’s romance with Charlize Theron back when the two were dating, so it’s not too surprising that the site would now target his son’s love life.
