Less than a month after Robin Wright filed for divorce from Sean Penn, the actor was spotted numerous times with model Jessica White in New York City.

On The Tyra Show Wednesday, White, a former guest judge on Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model Cycle 13, was grilled about dating the movie star.

“Can I say that? Is that OK, is that too much?” Banks asked.

“No, it’s not too much,” White said.

When Banks showed photos of Penn and White, who was dating Terrell Owens earlier in the summer, holding hands in September, White played it cool.

“I hold hands with my friends,” said the model, trying to keep it coy, but to which Banks excitedly replied, “Ooooh, she’s dating Sean Penn!”

“No, I didn’t say that,” White says. “[We] used to, past tense.”

Despite cooling things off, White still thinks fondly of the actor.

Says the model, “He is a very sweet guy.”
