"I'm in love with a woman and home is where the heart is, right?" Actor Sean Penn is preparing to settle down in Los Angeles with girlfriend Charlize Theron and her adopted son Jackson. For the past five years, the Oscar winner has been splitting time between his homes in the U.S. and Haiti, where his charity is based.
Sean Penn has filed documents to begin the process of adopting Charlize Theron's son, according to a U.S. report. The actor has been dating the blonde beauty since 2013, and they are rumoured to be engaged to marry.
A new report now suggests Penn is taking the relationship to the next level by becoming the legal father of Theron's adopted son, Jackson, three.
A source tells Usmagazine.com that Penn has filed paperwork to begin the process.
The Mystic River star has two grown-up children, Dylan and Hopper, with his ex-wife Robin Wright.
Charlize Theron had to explain herself to California police on Thursday (13Nov14) after a female hiker called authorities amid concerns for the actress' screaming son. The Oscar winner was enjoying a sunrise picnic outing with her boyfriend Sean Penn and her little boy Jackson at Vasquez Rocks in Santa Clarita, where the onlooker saw the two year old in a screaming fit.
The stranger began filming the episode as she approached the kid, only to be confronted by Theron, who asked her not to go near Jackson.
The hiker left and called the cops to report the incident, amid fears for the boy's well-being, prompting officers to pay Theron and Penn a visit.
However, the police subsequently determined young Jackson was not being mistreated after Theron explained she had just placed him on a time out for behaving badly, according to TMZ.com.
No further action will be taken against Theron.
Former Batman Michael Keaton is to be honoured with the Modern Master Award at the 30th annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The actor, who is being hotly tipped for the Best Actor Oscar for his role in new movie Birdman, will collect the accolade at a gala on 31 January (15).
Past Modern Masters have included Ben Affleck, Christopher Nolan, Michael Douglas, Jodie Foster, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Sean Penn, Peter Jackson, George Clooney, Will Smith, Cate Blanchett and Clint Eastwood.
Announcing next year's (15) recipient, SBIFF executive director Roger Durling says, "There is no actor more befitting of the Modern Master Award than the legendary Michael Keaton. His performance in Birdman is tremendous, showing the range of decades-long experience."
Sean 'Diddy' Combs has reportedly spent $40 million (£25 million) on a new Holmby Hills, Los Angeles mansion close to the one where Michael Jackson died in 2009. The European villa has eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.
Hollywood actors Clive Owen, Samuel L. Jackson, Damian Lewis and Sean Bean were among the famous faces who became stockbrokers for the day on Thursday (11Sep14) for a Transatlantic 9/11 charity event. A whole host of actors, musicians, royals, sports stars, and celebrities joined in Cantor Fitzgerald's and BGC Partners' annual Charity Day, which commemorates the victims of America's 2001 terrorist attacks by raising money for good causes.
The event takes place in London and New York City, and actors including Owen, Bean and Lewis were among those who manned the phones on the U.K. leg along with Downton Abbey star Jim Carter and funnyman Stephen Fry.
Others taking part included British royal Princess Beatrice, tennis legend Boris Becker, girl group All Saints, and model David Gandy, while actor Steve Buscemi and Pamela Anderson turned out for the Big Apple event.
Jackson tweeted about the event, which took place 13 years after the devastating U.S. terrorist attacks, writing, "Up early headed to @BGCCharityDay reppin' @One4theBoys (charity) Don't forget to take a min to remember those who died on Nine Eleven!! (sic)."
Actress Charlize Theron has fuelled rumours she is preparing to wed boyfriend Sean Penn after she was photographed wearing a new sparkler on her ring finger on Wednesday (23Jul14). The Monster star, who is mum to adopted son Jackson, began dating her longtime friend Penn late last year (13) and recent reports suggest the highly-private couple is planning to take its relationship to the next level by walking down the aisle.
Sources tell UsMagazine.com Theron and her new man are set to exchange vows in her native South Africa later this summer (14), and now new pictures of the actress arriving at Los Angeles International Airport have given weight to the claims.
In the snaps, the 38-year-old beauty, who is wearing minimal make-up and jewellery, flashes what appears to be a diamond engagement band on her left ring finger.
A representative for Penn has declined to issue a statement on the report, while a spokesperson for Theron has yet to respond to WENN's request for a comment.
If the rumours are true, it will be Theron's first wedding, while 53-year-old Penn was previously married to Madonna and newly-engaged actress Robin Wright.
Samuel L. Jackson has shot down rumours suggesting he endured an awkward silence with Victoria Beckham as they sat side-by-side at the Wimbledon tennis championships on Sunday (06Jul14), insisting they "had a ball".
A host of celebrities were spotted in the crowd at the Men's Singles Final in London as Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer in a nail-biting five-set match, but it was film footage of the movie icon and former Spice Girls star Beckham fidgeting through an apparent silence during the game that went viral on Monday morning (07Jul14).
The Vine.com clip showed the Pulp Fiction actor scratching his head and stroking his thigh during a break in the match as the two stars appeared to ignore one another.
However, Jackson has since taken to his Twitter.com account to dispel claims they failed to strike up a conversation. In a post on Monday (07Jul14), he writes, "Lotta Bulls**t goin' round (sic), I had a ball sitting next to @victoriabeckham at Wimbledon yesterday! Truly Lovely!STFU (shut the f**k up)!!"
Lotta Bullshit goin' round, I had a ball sitting next to @victoriabeckham at Wimbledon yesterday! Truly Lovely!STFU!!

Beckham had been joined by her soccer star husband David at Centre Court, while Sir Sean Connery, Bradley Cooper, Chris Hemsworth and Hugh Jackman were also seen in the audience, along with Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
Denzel Washington's return to the Broadway stage has won him rave reviews. The Oscar winner is leading the cast of a revival of race drama A Raisin in the Sun, and the critics love his performance as chauffeur Walter Lee Younger.
Variety has called his latest role "a personal triumph", while USA Today insists Washington's portrayal is "riveting".
British actress Sophie Okonedo also won praise in her Broadway debut as Washington's onstage wife.
New York Times critic Ben Brantley writes, "Despite the central presence of a movie megastar, the 2014 Raisin has a welcome egalitarianism," while The Hollywood Reporter's David Rooney adds, "Washington is the star attraction, but it's the harmonious balance of an impeccably matched ensemble that makes (director) Kenny Leon's lovingly staged revival of A Raisin in the Sun so alive with authentic feeling."
He continues: "Washington slides and swaggers around with the physicality of a still-young man who refuses to let go of his dreams."
The latest production of Lorraine Hansberry's award-winning 1959 drama, currently playing at New York's Ethel Barrymore Theatre, also features Sean Patrick Thomas, Anika Noni Rose and Samuel L. Jackson's actress wife Latanya Richardson Jackson.
Sean 'Diddy' Combs' impact on popular culture is to be examined by students at New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. Topics: Sean Combs & Urban Culture will be taught by Jayson Jackson, who was the former Vice President of Marketing and Promotions at the rapper/producer's Bad Boy Entertainment company.
The course description reads, "No single personality dominated the landscape of urban mainstream popular culture in the 1990s (and since) more than producer, rapper and entrepreneur Sean 'Puff Daddy' Combs."
The class will "investigate the social and cultural and political changes of the 1990s and how Sean Combs was catapulted to success by those changes".
Combs is not the only hip-hop musician to be the focus of a current college course - Jay Z and Kanye West are subjects of a class at the University of Missouri.
And, earlier this week (beg24Mar14), professors at Skidmore College in New York announced they were offering a course on singer Miley Cyrus, titled The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media.
