Dylan Frances Penn (born April 13, 1991)[2] is an American model and actress. She is the only daughter and elder child of Sean Penn and Robin Wright.[3]

Early life[edit]

Wright had won the role of Maid Marian in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, but gave up the role due to her pregnancy with Dylan.[4] Penn was born in Los Angeles,[2] and raised in Ross, a town in Marin County.[5] She has a younger brother named Hopper Jack.[6] She attended Marin Academy.[7] Her parents' divorce was finalized in 2010.[8] Before modeling, Penn had worked delivering pizzas, as a waitress and as a freelance screenplay editor.[9] She also worked in New York as a restaurant hostess and an intern at an advertising agency.[10]

Public life[edit]

Penn gained public exposure when she dated Robert Pattinson in 2013.[11] According to Penn, the relationship was not serious.[10][12] Her first modeling billboards were for Gap in 2013.[13] Then she appeared in GQ in December 2013,[14] in W in January 2014,[12] and Elle in March 2014.[10]

E! Online reported on March 5, 2014, that Penn had declined a $150,000 offer to pose for the cover of Playboy.[5][15][16] However, she accepted an offer to pose for Tony Duran for the cover and a full layout in the seventh issue of treats!, which was released on April 8, 2014.[5][16] Although nude, Penn was not completely exposed, as she was partially obscured by a $6,000-plus Fendi bag in the cover photo and similar accoutrements in the interior layout.[5][17] Penn said that she had "always loved [Duran's] black-and-white nudes".[16] At the time of the issue's April 16 launch party in Los Angeles, she was filming The Condemned in New York.[5] The horror film, in which she plays a gang member living in a rundown building, is directed by Eli Morgan Gesner.[16][18] She stated that she was testing the waters in terms of acting.[16] Within weeks of the issue's release, Penn signed a new modeling contract with Premier Model Management to represent her in the United Kingdom.[13][19] Penn has noted that she only models to earn a paycheck. She aspires to be involved on the writing/directing end of the Hollywood business.[10]

On May 23, 2014, Maxim revealed its annual Hot 100 list,[20] which included Penn at #68.[21] Penn was also listed at #93 in the 2014 AskMen 99 Most Desirable Women list.[22] During the last weekend in June 2014, she filmed an undisclosed video project with Nick Jonas at the Hotel Alexandria.[23] In September 2014, Penn received a lot of attention for appearing pantsless alongside Poppy Delevingne in Rock Roll Ride, a video (referred to as a short film by some) directed by Julia Restoin Roitfeld, as biker chicks for shoe designer Stuart Weitzman during Paris Fashion Week. The pair modeled a wide variety of the latest boot designs.[24][25] It was the first female-directed ad campaign for the brand.[26]
