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. Penn was born in Los Angeles, and raised in Ross, a town in Marin County. She has a younger brother named Hopper Jack. She attended Marin Academy. Her parents' divorce was finalized in 2010. Before modeling, Penn had worked delivering pizzas, as a waitress and as a freelance screenplay editor. She also worked in New York as a restaurant hostess and an intern at an advertising agency.
Penn gained public exposure when she dated Robert Pattinson in 2013. According to Penn, the relationship was not serious. Her first modeling billboards were for Gap in 2013. Then she appeared in GQ in December 2013, in W in January 2014, and Elle in March 2014.
E! Online reported on March 5, 2014, that Penn had declined a $150,000 offer to pose for the cover of Playboy. 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. 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. Penn said that she had "always loved [Duran's] black-and-white nudes". At the time of the issue's April 16 launch party in Los Angeles, she was filming The Condemned in New York. The horror film, in which she plays a gang member living in a rundown building, is directed by Eli Morgan Gesner. She stated that she was testing the waters in terms of acting. Within weeks of the issue's release, Penn signed a new modeling contract with Premier Model Management to represent her in the United Kingdom. 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.
On May 23, 2014, Maxim revealed its annual Hot 100 list, which included Penn at #68. Penn was also listed at #93 in the 2014 AskMen 99 Most Desirable Women list. During the last weekend in June 2014, she filmed an undisclosed video project with Nick Jonas at the Hotel Alexandria. 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. It was the first female-directed ad campaign for the brand.
