Oscar New Couple Alert: Sean Penn & Supermodel Petra Nemcova

Sean Penn is back in the dating pool, taking a dive into the deep end of couple-dom with supermodel Petra Nemcova at a slew of Oscar weekend events.

Sean and Petra turned up together at Elton John's Oscar party, one day after hitting up the CAA Oscar party together.

The 28-year-old model will not confirm she is dating the 47-year-old actor, telling People, "We are friends. He is on the advisory board of my charity."

Sean and Petra were also spotted leaving Hollywood hotspot Villa at a little past 3 AM, Page Six reports, where they celebrated with Penelope Cruz and Oscar winner Javier Bardem. No word if the two friends were working on Petra's charity until the wee hours of the morning.

Sean ended his 11-year marriage to Robin Wright Penn less than two months ago. Petra has been previously linked to singer James Blunt and Bruce Willis.
