Did you ever think the an Oscar winner would be a fan of The Bachelor?! Well it turns out Sean Penn and his girlfriend, Charlize Theron, are huge fans of the reality TV show! He's so invested in the show that he has already decided if he's #TeamKaitlyn or #TeamBritt.

So whom did he choose? #TeamKaitlyn for Sean! It seemed as if everyone in the audience was on the same team, because everyone cheered in agreement upon hearing his decision.

But his fandom only goes so far. While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote his upcoming movie, The Gunman, he explained to host Jimmy Kimmel that he doesn't watch to actually get to know the girls on The Bachelor—he just wants to know who gets picked (and who doesn't). But before the Academy Award winner could explain his guilty pleasure, Kimmel had to make one important observation.

"I assume you're watching it with [Charlize] or else if you're watching it alone this is real weird," he joked.

Apparently Sean and Charlize are so invested in the show that he and his ladylove argue about whether or not to fast forward just to see the decisions...and the subsequent emotions LOL.

"I don't really want to hear the conversations," he explained. "I want to see somebody cry, and then see somebody get ecstatic and then see them cry."

"You could be on the Penn Tell All special," joked Kimmel, whose mind was still blown after learning about Penn's favorite pastime. "Wow, that's unbelievable that you're watching The Bachelor."

What the Milk star finds more surprising is the fact that he's in love at 54! He opened up to Esquire UK about his past and present relationships (he has been married twice) and dished that he didn't think it would be possible for him to find happiness like that again.

"I'm surprised to be in love," Penn, 54, admitted. "Lot of reasons. Fifty-three years old [when they got together] plus finally beginning to figure out why you haven't been happy in a single relationship? It could seem too late."

But when asked point blank whether or not he'd tie the knot again, he responded, "Yes, I'd get married again. I'm in love with a woman and home is where the heart is, right?"
