The Australian actress filed divorce documents on Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, according to TMZ.

The reason behind the split is currently unclear.

The Milk actor began dating the Mortal Engines star – who is the daughter of Vincent D’Onofrio – back in 2016.


It was revealed the couple secretly tied the knot in August 2020 when philanthropist Irena Medavoy – wife of Black Swan producer Mike Medavoy – posted a congratulations on Instagram.

She wrote: “We are so happy for @leilageorge #seanpenn getting married. We love you. Thank you for being like family a son to mike we are over the moon to find your soul mate true partner @coreresponse true love that also changes the world for better

“You are meant to be together God Bless you both and the family you have joined. Introducing the Penn’s #marriage.”

Among the photos of the couple was a photo of a ring with a sapphire – which appeared to be the wedding ring.

The marriage was further confirmed when the couple received a congratulation message from Josh Brolin – who starred with Sean in Milk and Gangster Squad.

He wrote on his Instagram Story: “Happy Wedding lovebirds. Our salutations to a beautiful marriage. Sean and Leila.”

Leila was Sean’s third wife, as he was previously married to Madonna, 63, and Robin Wright, 55.

Before his most recent marriage, Sean was in a relationship with actress Charlize Theron in late 2013 until they called it off in summer 2015.


While Sean is known for his impressive filmography,  Leila’s acting career is still taking off.

She is best known for her roles in Mortal Engines, Animal Kingdom, and The Kid.

Before pursuing her acting career, Leila studied at the Sydney Film School.

She recently completed filming two movies- The Long Home and Solus- but a release date has not been confirmed.

Despite coming from a famous family, not much additional information is available on the young actress.
