Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson’s May-December relationship has the blessing of his pal Mark Ruffalo.
“I’m very happy for anyone that finds love,” Mark says of the Sean-Scarlett coupling during DeLeon Tequila’s Sympathy For Delicious special screening held Monday in NYC.
What is Sean like as a friend?
“He puts his money where his mouth is,” Mark says of Sean, whom he filmed alongside in the 2006 movie All The King’s Men. “He has the convictions of his beliefs. I think he’s a hell of an actor, and I think it’s pretty admirable that he takes the time to help other people. He catches a lot of crap for it, but that makes it even cooler.”
