The Buzz: Hopper Penn hopping mad, hurls slurs at photographer

When it comes to fighting photographers, the nut doesn't fall too far from the tree.

Sean Penn's son, Hopper, got hopping mad at a paparazzo in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, calling him not one, but both of the Words That Must Not Be Said.

The 19-year-old was following his dad -- sporting the world's worst ponytail -- into some kind of medical building when he rammed through a black photographer. In a video obtained by TMZ, Sean's son with Robin Wright shoves the man, then says, "F--k you ... you're a f-----g f---t ... shut up you f-----g n----r."

Hopper's 20-hypen salute -- possibly a new Buzz record -- recalls the 1987 incident in which Daddy Sean assaulted a photographer on a film set, earning him 33 days in jail. And who can forget the time Sean hit then-wife Madonna in the head with a baseball bat, sending her to the hospital?

We look forward to seeing what else Hopper has coming out of the hopper.

My baby's having a baby
Speaking of coming out, "Today" weekend anchor Jenna Wolfe is going public with her partner, NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk -- and they're expecting a girl.

Turns out Jenna and Stephanie have been together for three years. Why come out now?

"I don't want to bring my daughter into a world where I'm not comfortable telling everyone who I am and who her mother is," Jenna, 40, tells People.

"The beauty is that we live in a time where there's no need for secrecy," Stephanie, 40, says. "This is a spectacular moment for us."

Congrats, you two. We're running off to Facebook right now to make our profile picture an equals sign.

Hamm dishes on meat
A week after the New York Daily news reported that AMC execs told "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm to put on some damn underwear, the star is fighting back.

"Most of it's tongue-in-cheek, but it is a little rude," Jon tells Rolling Stone of the ensuing paparazzi shots of his crotch. "It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have -- a prurience."

We were gonna look up "prurience" in the dictionary, but we decided to keep reading the interview. "They're called 'privates' for a reason," Jon says. "I'm wearing pants, for f--k's sake. Lay off."

Jennifer Westfeldt's boyfriend continues crying crocodile -- or should we say mule -- tears: "I mean, it's not like I'm a f-----g lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my c--k, I feel like that wasn't part of the deal [of fame]."

Oh, come on, man. Admit you're thrilled.

"But whatever," he tells the magazine. "I guess it's better than being called out for the opposite."

That's more like it. - Ryan Vogt

Quick Takes

Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin filmed a pilot that might turn into a regular show on CNN, Deadline Hollywood reports.

Justin Bieber's California neighbor tells cops that the pop star spit in his face and said, "I'm gonna f-----g kill you."

"Today" anchor Matt Lauer doesn't want female producers on the show, saying the idea "reminded him of Lilith Fair," a source tells Us.

Say What?

I'm constantly criticized for being too skinny. I'm trying to gain weight but my body won't let it happen. What people don't understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat. It's not a nice feeling."
