Sean Penn splits from third wife Leila George after 15 months of marriage

Hollywood actor Sean Penn, 61, has split from his third wife, Australian actress Leila George, 29, after 15 months of marriage.

TMZ reported that Leila had filed the divorce papers at Los Angeles County Superior Court, just over a year since the couple married.

No further details have been given and it is unclear what has caused the couple to split.

Sean and Leila first met in 2016 on the set of film The Last Face, and dated for four years before marrying in a private ceremony at their family home last year.

They do not have any children together.

Talking via Zoom on Late Night with Seth Meyers in 2020, Sean had previously confirmed their marriage saying: “We did a Covid wedding.

“By that I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom and we were at the house with my two children and her brother, and we did it that way.”

The couple had last been seen out in Malibu shopping for groceries in August.

Sean Penn, known for Hollywood films including 2001's I am Sam, has been married three times before, first to pop superstar Madonna from 1985-1989 and then to House of Cards and Forrest Gump actress Robin Wright.

Sean and Robin were married from 1996-2010 and have two children together who are also actors and models – Dylan, 30, and Hopper, 27.

Talking to Esquire in 2012 about his previous marriages, Sean said, "'There is no shame in my saying that we all want to be loved by someone.

"As I look back over my life in romance, I don't feel I've ever had that."

Previously the actor has also dated stars including Charlize Theron, who also starred in The Last Face, alongside Sean and Leila.

His third wife Leila had previously starred in films including The Mortal Engines and The Kid.
