ACTOR Sean Penn has been married three times in his lifetime and is best known for his marriage to Madonna from 1985 to 1989.
His last marriage was to Australian-American actress Leila George, but on October 15, 2021, the couple announced they were divorcing.
Who is Sean Penn’s wife?
George, 29, born March 20, 1992, had been married to Penn, 61, since 2020.
George is known as an actress, best known for her roles in Mortal Engines, Animal Kingdom and The Kid.
Before entering the acting world, George studied at the Sydney Film School and while George’s career is still ongoing, she has just wrapped up filming on two films, ‘The Long Home’ and ‘Solus’, but a release date has not yet been confirmed .
Although he comes from a famous family, not much additional information is available about George.
Who are Leila George’s parents?
Although George’s acting career is still in full swing, she is the daughter of famous American actor, director and producer Vincent Philip D’Onofrio and Italian-Australian actress Greta Scacchi.
D’Onofrio, 62, began acting in 1983 and is a winner of two Saturn Awards.
He is best known for his roles in Men in Black, The Cell, Full Metal Jacket and Ed Wood and from 2001 to 2011 D’Onofrio also played the role of Detective Robert Goren in Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
George’s mother, Scacchi, 61, has also been an actress since the early 1980s and is best known for her roles in The Player, Emma, Looking for Alibrandi and Rasputin.
Like her husband, Scacchi is still very active and has just completed filming on three films in 2021 and is currently filming the TV mini-series Darby and Joan for release in 2022.
It was revealed that growing up in the entertainment industry helped George realize that it’s what she wanted to do.
“Growing up, I’d sit on my mom’s or dad’s sets for hours and never get bored,” she told W Magazine in 2019. “That was always where I wanted to be.”
Have Leila George and Sean Penn split?
The Australian actress filed Penn’s divorce deeds in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Oct. 15, according to TMZ.
The reason for the split is currently unclear.
Before their marriage, the happy couple wasn’t always so happy.
In August 2020, a source revealed to People magazine that Penn had to win George back before he could ever propose to her.
While the pair have been romantically linked since 2016, they have been in an on-off relationship for the span of four years.
