Like by Sean Penn divorce his third wife Leila George is finalized, his ex-wife by Robin Wright marriage to her new husband Clement Giraudet seems to be going stronger than ever. Looking back on the ex-spouses’ relationship, it’s clear to see why their marriage ultimately came to an end. They might have presented the perfect united front on the red carpet, but backstage it was a whole different matter.

Sean Penn and Robin Wright 12 years after their divorce

Robin Wright and Sean Penn have long since moved on from their 2010 divorce. In the years since their marriage dissolved, the two actors have remarried, though Penn recently finalized his divorce from third wife Leila George in early April.

The two married in a quiet and intimate ceremony in 2020, which was conducted over Zoom out of respect for COVID 19 protocols. George, whose legal name is Leila D’Onofrio, filed for divorce in 2021. L he former couple first made their public debut in 2016.

Who is Wright married to now?

Wright, meanwhile, is still happily married to her new husband, Saint Laurent’s head of international VIP relations, Clément Giraudet. The French native was first linked to the Card castle star in 2017, who broke off her engagement to sole survivor actor Ben Foster two years ago. The relationship progressed quickly, and in 2018, Giraudet and Wright tied the knot in a bohemian-themed wedding in France.

Looking at photos of Wright with her new hubby, it’s like we’ve never seen her happier than now. While there were certainly high points in Wright’s 14-year marriage to Penn, the low points no doubt caused them to pull the plug for good after a few false starts.

Robin Wright and Sean Penn first met on the set of state of grace, which came out in 1990, and quickly began a whirlwind romance. Penn had just emerged from his unstable marriage to Madonna. At the end of that year, the two were expecting their first child together, a girl they named Dylan. Two years later, in 1993, the couple welcomed a second child, their son Hopper.

In order to be there for her children, Wright decided to take a step back from her acting career, which had been hot when she first met Penn, to focus on her family. Meanwhile, Penn pursued his own career, winning two Best Leading Actor Oscars in 2004 and 2009 for the mystical river and Milk, respectively. Wright still chose acting work occasionally, including her iconic role as Jenny in Forrest Gump.

Although from the outside it might have looked like the two were enjoying their fairy tale happily ever after, their relationship was not without its weak points. After having their two children, the couple briefly separated in 1995, during which time Penn had a brief fling with singer Jewel, but when he and Wright decided to get back together in 1996, they went forward and got married.

A hard time leads to the final end

In 2007, Wright filed for divorce, but after four months she withdrew the petition as she and Penn seemingly resolved their issues. Penn filed for divorce soon after, although he also withdrew his petition after a few months. It wasn’t until Wright filed for divorce in 2010 that the couple decided not to attempt another reconciliation.

Since their final separation, the two have made career revolutions. Penn has become much more focused on charitable efforts and recently made headlines with his wholehearted support for Ukraine amid the Russian invasion. Wright made a full return to acting and was cast in the hit Netflix drama Card castle in 2013.

What has Penn said about Wright since?

As for what the relationship of the ex-spouses is today, it seems largely non-existent. During an appearance on the WTF Podcast, Penn explained that he didn’t “have much conversation” with Wright. “We don’t get along,” Penn continued, adding, “We have very separate relationships with our kids at this point and it seems to work better that way because they make their own decisions. It turns out that ‘she and I do not share the same ethical views on parenting, including the continued parenting of adult children.

It seems these two know that it’s best to walk away from certain chapters in life and never go back. Fortunately, their two children are now adults, so they don’t really need to have contact with each other anymore.
