ACTOR Sean Penn has been married three times throughout his life and is most famously known for his marriage to Madonna from 1985 to 1989.
His most recent marriage is to Australian-American actress Leila George.
Who is Sean Penn’s wife?
Born March 20, 1992, George, 29, has been married to Penn, 61, since 2020.
George is known as an actress and is most famously recognized for her roles in Mortal Engines, Animal Kingdom, and The Kid.
Prior to her start in the acting world, George studied at the Sydney Film School and while George’s career is still taking off, she just 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 George.
Who are Leila George’s parents?
While George’s acting career might still be taking off, she is the daughter of famous American actor, director and producer, Vincent Philip D’Onofrio and Italian-Australian actress Greta Scacchi.
D’Onofrio, 62, started acting in 1983 and is the winner of two Saturn Awards.
He is most famously 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 acting since the early 1980s and is most famously known for her roles in The Player, Emma, Looking for Alibrandi, and Rasputin.
Like her husband, Scacchi is still very much active and just finished filming three movies in 2021 and is currently filming the TV mini series, Darby and Joan, which is scheduled to be released 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 mum’s sets or my dad’s sets for hours and hours and not get bored,” she told W Magazine in 2019. “That’s always where I wanted to be.”
Did Leila George and Sean Penn break up?
Prior to their marriage, the happy couple was not always so happy.
In August 2020, a source revealed to People magazine that Penn had to win George back before he could ever ask for her hand in marriage.
While the couple have been romantically linked since 2016, over the course of four years, they had an on and off relationship.
“Leila has been in Sean’s life for a while. They got together and then they broke up, and Sean won her back,” the source revealed. “He realized he had made a mistake and when he felt he might lose her, he worked hard to get her back.”
The source also revealed that the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic was when the two decided to work on their relationship but it is unknown what mistake Penn made.
“They got back together during COVID and became really close and got engaged a few months ago, early during quarantine,” the source continued.
