She said: 'When I look for a partner there has to be a strong connection. He needs to be my best friend, whether he's macho or sensitive - it doesn't matter. He also has to make me laugh. I enjoy someone who's a lot of fun to be with.

'He also needs to be kind, patient, caring and not take himself too seriously. And of course, he needs to appreciate my cooking! I'm very domestic.'

Ryan was previously married to Scarlett Johansson. The tied the knot in September 2008 but separated just two years later when he filed for divorce in December 2010.

Penn is bound to say he is happy for them. He wont want to come across as the jealous ex. I think he secretly knows, like the rest of us, that it will be lucky if they last as long as his last marriage..

What a load of garbage. As if you are happy for your ex when they marry someone else - especially if you broke up with them not too long ago. I wonder what he REALLY thinks? - MelanieM , London, United Kingdom, 11/9/2012 04:18 ----------------------------------------------------------- They're your ex for a reason! Mostly teenagers think the way you do, or under developed adults who can't move on do. He's with someone else, so isn't really bitter about an ex getting married, still pining for a past love is not only sad but also creepy. Penn is a classy mature guy, if they were right for eachother they would have got married instead, but they weren't right for eachother, plus they've known one another since childhood.

Congratulations to Ryan and Blake, such a beautiful couple! Penn and Blake were home-schooled together as children, so it's nice to hear they are still good friends.
