Robin Wright Penn files for divorce

Robin Wright Penn has filed for divorce from Sean Penn, according to People. The papers, filed in Marin County, Calif. on Aug. 12, state that “both parties have already agreed to [shared] custody of their son Hopper Jack, 16, and that “the estranged couple have already agreed to division of all property.” The reason given for the split was “irreconcilable differences.”

The A-list couple, who had been together since 1989 and married in 1996, have had an up-and-down history of break-ups and make-ups. They have filed papers to initiate divorce on two other occasions. In June, Sean Penn reportedly dropped out of two big-ticket movie projects (MGM’s The Three Stooges and Universal/Imagine’s Cartel) to focus on his family life.

The couple first costarred in 1990’s State of Grace and have appeared in several movies together since then. Wright Penn was nominated for a Golden Globe for 1994’s Forrest Gump and Penn has been nominated for an Oscar five times and won twice, most recently for 2008’s Milk.

    Well, at least they did try again before throwing in the towel.

    There should be a new rule…third time filing has to stick.

  • ASH

    My guess is that they’ve been trying to spare their children as much as they possibly could.

      ASH, sounds like you are speaking from personal experience. It’s not worth it. The kids are more screwed up with two parents living together that hate each other than if they divorced.

    Sad. The fact that it took them this long to finally go through with it proves how much they still care about each other. Sometimes it still won’t work out, even when you do care.

      Janie, Unless you know them, how could you possibly know how they feel about each other? I am always amazed by people who surmise very personal things about people they don’t know based upon inadequate information. The only thing that can be proven here is that they are married, they have field for divorce. That’s it. It is their business, not yours or mine. Leave them alone.

    Great Actor.
    Shi**y Husband.
    (and dare we posit that their son is named after Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson?? I’m ok w/ that, my son is named after Sean Penn!)

    • Isembard

      Unless you’re Robin or Madonna, I’m not sure how you can know what kind of husband the man is.

  • Sabs

    Humph! How much ya wanna bet they’ll probably withdraw the divorce papers again?

  • JC

    Pool starts now…. I say 2 months and it is off again.

  • Zo

    I hate summer re-runs.

  • Strepsi

    Whenever I hear about her marriage troubles I always think about her as Jen-nay in Forrest Gump and it makes me sad.

  • Jim

    Good, now Sean will have more time to row through storm ravaged areas of the South with his personal photographer. For two self absorbed narcissists, they lasted quite a while.

  • mscisluv

    But will there be a sex tape?

  • Paul

    Princess Buttercup’s back on the market? SWEET!!

  • cv

    Average actor, sub-human! Classless jerk.
