This marks the actor’s third divorce.
They tied the knot in July 2020 in a small ceremony after dating for four years during the stature of the pandemic and affirmed it during the entertainer’s meeting with Seth Meyers on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” a month later.
“There are reports that you recently got married, is this true?” host Meyers asked Penn, inciting him to lift his ring.
“We did a COVID wedding. By that I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom and we were at the house, my two children and her brother. And we did it that way.”
George is Penn’s third spouse. She is 31 years younger than him. The “Friends” star started dating the “Mortal Engines” star – who is the daughter of Vincent D’Onofrio – in 2016 and didn’t have any children together.
Before Leila, Sean dated Charlize Theron in late 2013 until calling it off in summer 2015. Penn shares daughter Dylan Frances Penn and son Hopper Jack Penn with his second ex-wife, actress Robin Wright and he was also married to Madonna for four years from 1985 until 1989.
