Dylan Penn: No Social Media

In the late ’90s, Sean and Robin moved from Hollywood to Marin County, just above San Francisco up north. “I didn’t want to raise my kids in this weird, sycophantic society,” Robin told Entertainment Weekly. “If you have celebrity parents, it’s not a good recipe for the kids, or anyone at any age.” Robin’s daughter Dylan and son Hopper both turned out incredibly down to earth, philanthropic, hardworking and humble.

Dylan made headlines for “dating” Robert Pattinson, but according to her that was a silly rumor as the two are simply friends, something that happens often when two beautiful people are seen together more than once. But our favorite and most intriguing fact about this beauty is she is possibly the only 20 something year old without a social media account , thats right –  no Twitter, Instagram or Facebook – so to us she is proving to be as cool as her mom and as hard to tackle as her dad. She recently told W Magazine, ” I’m weirded out by it all, the whole selfie generation – its just not me.” We love this, not because there is anything wrong with social media, but simply because she is taking a stand for her own beliefs and what works for her, refusing to join into the cyber social world is a personal choice and shows she is totally comfortable with her own style of doing things. Originality is not dead! Its great that someone who could easily gain followers simply by the fame of her family is sticking to her own wishes and walking her own walk. Kudos to Dylan! Like most other 20 somethings, she does admit that she rarely buys whole albums though, citing Justin Timberlake’s as one of the few she has in its entirety, but her latest favorite sound comes from the Los Angeles based sisters HAIM.

Work wise, just because you may have seen her in GQ or W Magazines, she is not taking the acting route at this time, in fact, she works as an assistant for Screenwriter Erin Dignam, her Godmother, and is also penning her own screenplay about her brother’s experience in a rehab center. We can’t wait to see what she creates, her brother we guess will end up with at least a cameo in the film, as acting seems to be in his future plans, its rumored that he inspired his dad to go out to Haiti to rebuild the city too. Stay tuned, we expect some really amazing work from these two.
