Well, it looks like 29-year-old Leila George finally woke up from her waking coma, turned, and saw Sean Penn’s 61-year-old ass lying next to her, looked down at her wedding ring and thought, “Shit, I guess I married Sean Penn while in that coma, but now that I’m awake, I gotta change that.” Because after a year of being married to Sean Penn, Leila George has decided she no longer wants to be married to Sean Penn and filed papers to legally quit him So everyone can stop screaming, “RUN, LEILA, RUN!!!”, at her in the streets.
Leila is an Australian actress who plays Smurf in Animal Kingdom and whose parents are 62-year-old Vincent D’Onofrio and 61-year-old Greta Scacchi. Leila and Sean got married in July 2020 after being a thing since 2016. Listen, we’ve all made big mistakes during the pandemic. Some of us have spent way too much money on candle-making supplies thinking we’re going to start a candle empire during the pandemic and still haven’t touched that crap. And others, like Leila George, got married to Sean Penn. Who are we to judge?
During the pandemic, Sean has been very pro-vaccine and refused to continue filming the Starz series Gaslit (which also stars Julia Roberts) unless everybody had the COVID-19 vaccine running through their veins (NBCUniversal, who is producing Gaslit, recently told The Hollywood Reporter that all members of the cast and crew are now required to be vaccinated). But it looks like Sean’s also been dealing with marriage woes, because yesterday, Leila filed for divorce. via People:
Sean Penn’s wife, Australian actress Leila George, has filed for divorce after just over one year of marriage.
George, 29, filed the dissolution in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, PEOPLE confirms.
Reps for Penn and George did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
This will be Sean’s third divorce. Sean married Madonna in 1985 and their marriage finally ended in toxic cloud of messiness in 1989 after he allegedly beat her repeatedly (six years ago, Madonna called the allegations “reckless and false“). Sean married Robin Wright in 1996 and they made two children together (30-year-old Dylan Penn and 28-year-old Hopper Penn) before divorcing in 2010.
As for why Leila and Sean are done, I’m guessing it had to do with age. Specifically that Leila probably aged 30 years and Sean doesn’t want to be married to someone the same age as him! I mean, being married to Sean Penn will definitely age a person. It’s worse than that island from Old.
