Sean Penn and his wife Robin Wright Penn have had a bumpy relationship in the last few months. They’ve been on-again, off-again recently, but the last we’d heard was that they’d reconciled again. That was in May. Sean had filed a request to dismiss his legal separation to his wife.
But now it seems they are off again. In the current issue of More magazine, Robin says there won’t be a reconciliation between her and Sean after all. She says, "I hit that crossroad a while ago…the 'I know what I don't want' was flashing in neon lights."
She adds: "I have no regrets. I, we, have two amazing children we raised together."
Robin, who has three new movies coming out, says she’s trying to stay positive about this new chapter in her life. She says, “There’s clarity of life now. I think I’ve always been a follow-the-leader with my career, or maybe waiting for things to happen. Now I’m like, ‘I’m OK—I know the direction, whoever’s on board can go with me... I think I f--ked myself by not being strong enough. Waffling—you know, ‘Can I do this?’”
“I think that’s being young and finding out who you are, and all of a sudden, post-40, you just go, ‘I do know. I have the answer.’ There’s not as much questioning of my abilities.”
There still hasn’t been any confirmation of whether or not Sean was really having an affair with Natalie Portman, or if it was just a rumor. But it seems they’ve finally decided to call it quits. After so much back-and-forth “are they or aren’t they,” sadly this may be the best thing for the relationship.
