See Sean Penn & His Kids All Grown Up at the Premiere of Their Movie Together
The family recently walked the red carpet for the new movie they're starring in.
Iconic actor Sean Penn has two children, and they've been following in his footsteps for a few years, both appearing in films of their own. Now, these kids are all grown up and recently starred in the film Flag Day alongside their dad, who also directed the movie. The three walked the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival ahead of the film's premiere. Read on to see the family turned co-stars together.
Sean Penn and his children walked the red carpet together for their film premiere.
On July 10, Sean and his children, 30-year-old Dylan Penn and 27-year-old Hopper Penn, walked the red carpet at the 74th Cannes Film Festival for their film Flag Day. Sean shares his two children with his ex-wife, actor Robin Wright. Flag Day is Sean's sixth directing credit, but it's the first film he's both directed and starred in.
Dylan Penn stars in the film alongside her dad.
Dylan shared photos from the red carpet on her Instagram. The pictures featured Sean, Dylan, and Hopper, as well as Katheryn Winnick, who plays Sean's character's wife in the movie. "Last night was a dream," Dylan captioned the photos. "Thank you to everyone who made this possible! I am forever grateful." Before Flag Day, Dylan had appeared in a handful of movies, including Unregistered and Condemned. She was also in Nick Jonas' music video for "Chains."
Hopper Penn, who is also in the film, has been getting into producing.
Hopper has also appeared in a handful of feature-length movies and short films. Some of Hopper's credits include The Last Face, War Machine, and Between Worlds. He's also begun to work as a producer. In 2020, he acted in and produced the movie Puppy Love.
In 2016, Hopper told Interview that he never intended to act. When his dad was working on The Last Face, Hopper wanted to be a production assistant for the movie, but Sean insisted he be in it. "I said 'no, 'because I'm very shy; I didn't know how to act," Hopper told Interview. However, once his dad told him he would get paid for it, Hopper was in. "After the first day, I fell in love with it," he recalled.

The movie is based on a true story.
The film Flag Day is based on Jennifer Vogel's memoir Flim-Flam Man: The True Story of My Father's Counterfeit Life. In the movie, Dylan stars as Jennifer, and Sean stars as her father, John Vogel. Per IMDb, the film follows a father who "lives a double life as a counterfeiter, bank robber and con man in order to provide for his daughter." Hopper also appears in the film as Sean's son.
