Kal Penn, an American actor, best known for the role of Lawrence Kutner in House, is one of the most well-known actors in the industry. He is not only a sought-after actor, but he also served in the White House Office of Public Engagement as a Principle Director. Yet, regardless of his fame, Penn’s personal life is under shades.
What Do We Know About Penn's Love Life?
Unlike any other flashy celebs, Penn prefers to keep his private matters away from public attention. However, the actor is currently unmarried. But it is still unclear who the actor dated in the past.
Although his love life is well guarded, he has been tagged with his co-stars' names throughout the years. But the baseless rumors disappeared eventually as he never mentioned anything regarding the gossips.
Besides, because of his silence regarding his partner, the House actor was also speculated to be gay. But, again, with no confirmation from the actor on his sexuality, this rumor also remains baseless.
Though Penn is keen on hiding his love life, he often teases his fans and followers, making confusing social media posts. For instance, his Twitter post from September 14, 2015, with his co-actress from the movie The Girl In The Photographs, sure got some head-ups.
In the post, he uploaded a picture with the co-actress giving a cozy pose and wrote ‘my movie girlfriend.’ On a similar note, the actor also made an Instagram post referring to actress Italia Ricci, who shares the screen with Penn on Designated Survivor as his ‘work-wife.’
However, apart from his on-screen romance, nothing is yet known about the actor’s relationship status for real. Though there is nothing in store regarding his personal life currently, the actor’s professional life certainly has some updates for his fans.
