In case you've been living under a rock for the past week or so, Robert Pattinson has a new gal pal. She is 22-year-old Dylan Penn, who is none other than the daughter of Sean and Robin Wright Penn.
And while it seems a little soon for him to be getting serious with someone else after his breakup with Kristen Stewart, it sounds like Dylan might be exactly what Rob needs, especially since his buddies have supposedly given her their seal of approval.
Kristen might want to cover her ears for this one -- apparently Rob's friends think Dylan is "more secure" than she is. For that reason, they think Dylan's a much more suitable girlfriend for their boy.
And oh yeah, one more thing -- the fact that Dylan and her family "live their lives out of the spotlight" as opposed to being fame whores is another quality that makes Rob's pals think she's perfect for him.
Ouch. Way to kick a girl when she's already down. Kristen is reportedly upset about Rob's love life as it is. Hearing that his friends think Dylan is a better match than she is probably won't go over too well if she catches wind of it.
Oftentimes a guy's friends can be pretty hard to win over. If Dylan has already received the thumbs up, it's entirely possible that Rob's relationship with her could turn into something substantial a lot sooner than anyone expected -- which definitely isn't great news for KStew. I'm sure she's not dumb enough to think that he won't hook up with other women in the wake of their split, but something tells me she probably wasn't anticipating him settling down with someone so quickly.
Of course, all of the buzz surrounding Rob and Dylan could be nothing but a bunch of rumors. There's a chance that Kristen has nothing to worry about and can continue to try and convince herself that Rob will never get over her and will come crawling back on his hands and knees at some point in the future. (A girl can dream, right?)
Will you be surprised if Rob gets serious with another woman this soon?
