Robin Wright Penn at Crossroads with Sean
Robin Wright Penn is at a “crossroads” in her relationship with Sean Penn. The Forrest Gump actress says she and the Milk actor, who called off divorce proceedings in May, are living apart after she realized what she wants from life.
The mother-of-two, who married Sean in 1996, said:
“I hit that crossroad a while ago. The ‘I know what I don’t want’ was flashing in neon lights. I have no regrets. I, we, have two amazing children we raised together. There’s no limbo anymore. There’s no time. I’m too old for this s**t.”
Robin also revealed she is looking forward to moving on with her life, especially her film career. The 43-year-old star said: “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.”
In April, Sean filed for separation from Robin but a month later asked California’s Marin County Superior Court to dismiss the case claiming it was an “arrogant mistake”.
It was not the first time the couple had announced they were divorcing only to change their minds. Sean, 48, first filed for divorce in December 2007, but his petition was dismissed. Three days later Robin filed her own paperwork. However, in April 2008, they requested to have their divorce petition dismissed as they wanted to give their relationship another chance.
