Hopper Penn accompanied his father, Sean, to the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. (INFDaily.com)While Sean Penn and his ex-wife Robin Wright have lived most of their lives in the spotlight, their two children – daughter Dylan, 21, and son Hopper, 19 – really haven't. That changed Tuesday when Hopper, had a nasty run-in with paparazzi during which he hurled racial and gay slurs at an African-American photographer.

The teen – who was with his father when the incident occurred, although the actor, who won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of gay activist Harvey Milk in 2008, was walking in front of him and was likely out of earshot – has since apologized. "I was accosted by paparazzi and made to feel like an animal – threatened and under attack, but that does not condone my own actions,” he told TMZ. “I deeply regret my choice of words.” (A rep for Sean hasn’t yet responded to omg!’s request for comment.)
