Sean Penn, divorce seems a no go….

Sean Penn apparently couldn’t keep Natalie Portman on the hook, so he decided to try to work things out with his wife, Robin Wright Penn, by filing to stop the divorce. Hey, if that’s not a way to reconcile, I don’t know what is. Here is more from People.

The Oscar-winning actor filed a request Thursday to dismiss his legal separation case, Marin County, Calif., court records show.
“This appears to imply that they’re reconciling again,” says L.A. divorce lawyer Lynn Soodik, who is not involved with the case. “It’s unlikely Sean Penn would request a dismissal for any other reason.”

Natalie Portman and Sean Penn?

Natalie Portman has somehow managed to lose some of her hotness. Which says a lot, considering many (including I) figured she would always have an additional 3 points on the 1-10 scale for hotness, due to her Princess Leah attire she war in Star Wars. But she managed to level even that off this week by being caught making out with Sean Penn at the Sunset Towers hotel in Hollywood. More from Star.

“They went to a bank of elevators that only goes to the spa or to private rooms,” an eyewitness tells Star. “They came back about 45 minutes later, and that’s when I saw them making out.”
“There’s a door outside of the hotel’s Tower Bar that has a bridge to the terrace, so it’s semi-private,” the eyewitness explains. “I used that path to get to the restroom, and when I came back, I had to go through some curtains — and that’s when I interrupted Sean and Natalie! When they saw me, they were startled and quickly composed themselves.”

He just played that guy, Milk. How sexy? They do say the ladies love the gay thing. I guess this goes a few steps in providing more evidence of such. Below is more hot Natalie Portman pictures. Enjoy while they last….

James Franco suggest that Sean Penn is light in the loafers.

James Franco and Sean Penn are doing a movie together, and if Sean Penn had it his way, they’d also be doing…each other. The new movie is titled Milk, its about gay activist Harvey Milk. Read more dirt on Page 6.

“In the original script I read, there was only one real kissing scene,” Franco tells next month’s Elle. “A month after [director] Gus [Van Sant] asked me to do it, they sent me another script, and on Page 5 there was a full-on love scene. And I was like, ‘Gus, what the heck?’ He says, ‘Well, it was Sean’s idea.’ “

Ok, talk about getting deep into character by getting deep into …. Yeah, that’s where I stop and don’t ruin an already crappy Monday. All the same, it appears that Sean Penn is a really serious actor.
