PENN’S FIRST AND SECOND MARRIAGE

Penn first exchanged vows with world-renowned singer Madonna in 1985 and stayed married until 1989. The actor was the inspiration behind the singer’s “True Blue” album.

He later tied the knot with Robin Wright, whom he had two children with -- a daughter, Dylan, and a son, Hopper.

Sadly, Penn and Wright’s marriage ended in divorce and the two legally separated in 2010. The actor talked about their opposing beliefs on Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast. He said:

“We have very separate relationships with our kids at this point and it seems to work better that way because they are making their own choices. As it turned out, she and I did not share the same ethical views on parenting, including the continuing parenting of adult children.”

PENN AND CHARLIZE THERON

After his divorce with Wright, the actor started dating his longtime friend Charlize Theron. There were moments during the course of their relationship that the entertainers would be seen out showing affection.

In 2014, news that the couple was ready to settle down emerged as an insider close to the actor shared that they “want to get married very soon” and “always intended to have another child.”
