Brooding actor Sean Penn and his some-time actress wife Robin Wright Penn have called of their divorce. Again.
From Bitten and Bound:
The Milk star petitioned the Marin County Superior Court on Thursday to dismiss his current legal separation case. Penn’s rep has confirmed that the report is true and said that according to Sean, “It was an arrogant mistake.”
Rumors were flying in February, after the actor accepted his Best Actor Oscar for his role in Milk at the Academy Awards and failed to mention his wife. Two months later Penn filed for a legal separation.
The couple previously split in December 2007 and reconciled three days later. Penn and his wife have been married 13 years and have two children, Dylan, 18, and Hopper Jack, 15.
An interesting side note is the fact that Robin Wright Penn has been at the Cannes Film Festival for the past few days. Perhaps it is a case of ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’.
Meanwhile, in another part of Cannes, The Inglourious Basterds ruled supreme.
After a critically acclaimed press screening of Quentin Taratino’s new WWII movie, the cast and their director took part in a press conference during which it was revealed just how Brad Pitt agreed to be Lt. Aldo Raine, and that Eli Roth thinks the movie is porn.
From Seriously? OMG! WTF?:
[Pitt] said, QT came over and when he woke up the next day there 5 empty bottles of wine and a smoking apparatus, next thing he knew he was in Germany filming IB….Eli Roth made this comment about playing his role, “Being Jewish, this is definitely for me like Kosher porn,” Roth joked. “It’s something I fantasized about since I was a very young child.”
