Hollywood actor had heads turning after he was spotted enjoying some peri-peri chicken at Cape Town's Dias Tavern

Who would have thought that enjoying some chicken in Cape Town would let you run into the like of Hollywood star Sean Penn.

The City Press this week reported that the star turned heads while tucking into per-peri baby chicken at a casual Cape Town taverna, Dias Tavern, on Wednesday

The question on many tongues, however, was where is the actors South African beauty, girlfriend Charlize Theron? The report read that when asked by staff at Dias Tavern why Theron didn’t accompany him to South Africa, Penn retorted: “Who says she didn’t?” Penn and Theron have been on a South African sightseeing spree and were photographed at the Augrabies waterfall near the Northern Cape town of Upington last week.

'We waved at him and he waved back, twice'

Penn is allegedly in the Mother City scouting locations for a new film, which is still unknown and was accompanied on his lunch by local filmmakers.

Among those who spotted the star included Alayne Reesberg, chief executive officer of Cape Town World Design Capital 2014 and SA singer, David Kramer who joked that he had arranged to meet Penn there.

“Oh yes, he is charming. We waved at him and he waved back, twice,” Reesberg said.
