Czech Supermodel Petra Nemcova has denied she is romancing Sean Penn.
Much had been written about the two after they were spotted together during the Elton John post-Oscar bash.
“Yes, we are friends. He is on the advisory board of my charity.”
Petra, who launched The Happy Hearts Fund for disadvantaged youngsters in 2005 after surviving the Indian Ocean tsunami tragedy, happily posed for photographers at the exclusive bash with Sean’s arm around her waist. The couple also reportedly enjoyed each other’s company at Los Angeles club Villa on Saturday.
Whatever it may be, I must say this girl seems to have a bad taste in men. Hell, she dated James Blunt and Hiltons’ ex Stavros Niarchos! And now… even if it’s just a rumour, the guy is Sean Penn… who looks like a freaked-out old timer! I wonder how much did he donate to Petra’s foundation to be sitting where he was last night.
Sean, 47, recently announced his split from his wife of 11-years Robin Wright Penn, as both cited “irreconcilable differences”. He might be just a ‘friend’ but he sure had a great company in the party.
Petra sure looked like a sweetheart in a custom-designed lemon yellow Roberto Cavalli gown and bright red lips!
Talking about her, she’s got a rough past. In December 2004, she was injured in Thailand by a tsunami resulting from the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake, her then-fiancé, Simon Atlee, was killed in the tsunami.
Nemcova was featured on the cover of the 2003 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and has also modeled for Victoria’s Secret, and for many other companies in the women’s clothing market.
She also appeared in the 2007 British FHM calendar as Miss May. She is now the host of TLC’s A Model Life.
