Valeria Golino has mesmerized the world with her on-screen chemistry with leading actors like Tom Cruise. However, romance isn't only limited to her reel life. It extends to her off-screen life too, as this charming and mysterious actress has been with various partners over the years.
The world certainly knows about the intense chemistry the femme fatale has shared with men in her films. She has romanced actors, including Pee-wee Herman, Dustin Hoffman, Tom Cruise, and Charlie Sheen. But that's not all. Her off-screen life seems to have just as much thrill and excitement as her on-screen one.
Even though she is allegedly single at the moment, she certainly has been involved with quite a few men in the past. Starting from the latest to the earliest, let's take a look at her past relationships.
Valeria Golino's Romantic Relationships Over The Past Few Years
The Italian beauty's latest rumored beau was Sean Penn. The duo had first met on the sets of The Indian Runner, which Penn was directing back in 1991. However, the dating rumors came almost 20 years later. The couple was seen kissing and enjoying a romantic dinner date at Dal Bolognese restaurant in 2011, which made headlines. But, they were seen together only once, which lead fans to think that they weren't together anymore.
Before Penn, Golino was dating the Italian actor Riccardo Scamarcio. The couple had started dating in 2006 but got separated after dating for about a decade.
