When Sean Penn has a night out in Hollywood, people notice—especially if he's with a beautiful, and pretty well-known, fellow celeb.

So who shared a meal with the outspoken actor and human-rights activists the other night at the celebrity haunt Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles?

Although he was arrived solo and sat alone at the bar for a bit, he was eventually joined by none other than Franklin & Bash actress Garcelle Beauvais.

"When she arrived, they moved to the front corner table, which put them on display," a source tells us. "They sat inside for a while and even ordered food."

Then they moved outside, where Penn was able to smoke—and perhaps have more privacy?

Penn's rep did not immediately comment. Beauvais' issued the standard line about not commenting on her client's private life.

So was it romantic?

If it wasn't, perhaps the two were discussing their efforts to help rebuild Haiti. Beauvais, who was born in Haiti, lost an aunt in the earthquake. "I did a short film, called Eyes to See, a lot of charity and raising money," the 44-year-old beauty recently told Jet magazine about her work there. "My family in Miami is doing everything: sending coats, sending supplies. A lot of people have stepped up for Haiti. In that, there is so much hope."

She was on hand in New York when Penn was honored earlier this year at the Help Haiti: Urban Zen HHRH & The Stiller Foundation event, which honored the Oscar winner for his work on the island nation.

Beauvais has been married and divorced twice and has three children. Her second marriage ended when she allegedly caught her agent husband Mike Nilon cheating on her. An email she wrote to his colleagues outlining his infidelities was leaked to the press.

Penn, 50, who was married but now divorced from Madonna and Robin Wright, was most recently linked to Scarlett Johansson, 26.

Now we want to hear from you. Do you think Penn and Beauvais make a good couple? Chime in below.
