Despite the claims of certain celebrity tabloids, celebrities aren't like us—especially when it comes to marriage. So whenever a couple makes it past their 10 year anniversary, it's easy to think that their marriage will last forever. Sadly, that's not always the case.
Two-time Oscar winner, Sean Penn and his gorgeous wife, Robin Wright Penn are separating—for the second time! The on-again-off-again couple (who have have been married for 11 years) officially announced their split via press release. This is the second time the couple has filed for legal separation (Robin had previously filed papers in Decmeber 2007).
The couple reconciled in April 2008, but that didn't seem to slow down Sean Penn's, um, active social life. He was spotted on the town with a bevy of young beauties—from Sienna Miller to Lindsay Lohan to Natalie Portman—taking an interest in far more than their acting abilities. Star magazine reported on a rumoured encounter between Penn and Portman earlier this year. According to an eyewitness, ''They went to a bank of elevators that only goes to the spa or to private rooms,'' he said, adding, ''They came back about 45 minutes later, and that's when I saw them making out."
Does this mean the couple has split for good? No one can be sure, but if we were in Robin's place we'd have said adios back in February. Omitting (intentional or not) to thank her in his acceptance speech this year for his performance Gus Van Sant's Milk, would have been the final nail in the coffin for us.
