Always been an open book
In his new book, You Can't Be Serious, which he is currently promoting, he noted being open with people he interacts with no matter where they meet.
He said despite his bubbly self - his fiancé, parents and brother, are fairly quiet and do not love attention.
Penn said he and Josh were in the planning stages for their wedding but disagreed on its size.
While he wants a big one, Josh is asking for just a small event with family and close friends - adding they might as well meet in the middle.
