Could this mean Robert Pattinson's rumored romance with Dylan Penn is over?
Shortly after reports surfaced that the Twilight hunk and Sean Penn's daughter were heating up (but had yet to refer to each other as "boyfriend and girlfriend"), photos of the blond beauty with Vampire Diaries star Steven R. McQueen yesterday popped up.
The TVD actor, who was hanging out with comic writer Kyle Higgins earlier that day, joined Dylan, her family and Jon Hamm for dinner following the premiere of Sean's latest film, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, at the AFI Film Festival in Los Angeles.
However, don't be too quick to label this as a new couple alert just yet. McQueen is a known pal of both Penn and Pattinson, and the pair didn't seem to engage in any sort of PDA last night, according to an eyewitness, other than Steven offering his leather jacket to Dylan. How chivalrous!

McQueen has been in a serious relationship with Hillary Harley for quite some time, and while the current status of their relationship is not clear, the pair was photographed together on Oct. 26 before heading out to a Halloween party with friends.
Meanwhile, a source recently told E! News that Penn and Pattinson's relationship was definitely romantic, adding that they seemed well suited for each other.
Rumors that the potential couple were hanging out first surfaced in September when they were spotted together at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood after seeing a show by rapper Mickey Avalon. Nearly a month later, the two were at a private party celebrating the release of Angie Banicki's new book 30 Before 30 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
