Before I ask if you love or hate this look, maybe I should tell you who it is. Robin Wright Penn, dudes. I found her to be completely unrecognizable without the blonde hair. Now that she’s finally, really, really, probably, hopefully done with Sean, she was obviously ready for a change of epic proportions. What do you think of her new look?
Robin Wright is on the cover of September’s issue of More and spilling the news that her marriage to Sean Penn is over. Though the interview was conducted a few months ago, she maintains that nothing has changed. “I hit that crossroad a while ago—for Robin, the ‘I know what I don’t want’ [sign] was flashing 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 shit.”
My original approach was to shrug it all off because, let’s face it, this exact scenario unfolds every couple of months. However, as I was typing, I found out that Robin filed for divorce on August 12. I have a feeling this one will stick — mostly because she initiated it.
I wonder if this will bring an end to Sean’s year-long break. You know, the sabbatical he decided to take so he could spend it with his wife and kids? He gave up The Three Stooges movie for this woman!
Never mind that they are wasting the court’s time, they are wasting my time and seriously irritating me in the process. Sean Penn and wife Robin Wright-Penn have asked that their legal separation case be dismissed. Again. This would be the second “I Love You, I Love You Not,” go-around for these two.
You know who I feel bad for? Their kids. At this point, how many times do you think Sean and Robin have sat down with their sons and given them the “Listen, you know mommy and daddy both love you, right? Sometimes, it’s better for a mom and dad to live separately. That way, we’ll both be happier which will result in you guys being happier,” talk? These kids must just roll their eyes and be all “Whatevah.” Because they know what all of America knows – these two messes aren’t ever going to split up. Every 12 to 15 months they’ll get restless and file some sort of legal motion but that will be the extent of it.
So, yeah. Sean Penn and Robin Wright are back together. Nobody. Cares.
Evil Beet Gossip is going green today and totally recycling this story as originally reported back in December 2007 when these two crazy kids filed the first time. They eventually reconciled in April, 2008.
Now here we are. It’s April, 2009, Robin Wright is still wearing boring black dresses, Sean Penn is still a dick and they still hate each other. In other words, nothing has changed.
Penn (again!) filed for a legal separation on April 24th. They have been married for thirteen years and have two sons, Hopper Jack and Dylan Frances.
You know, now that Madonna is single, and every production from the 1980′s is being remade anyway, maybe we can see a Sean and Madonna revival.
The couple, who originally filed for divorce in December, have withdrawn their divorce petition.
This makes me kind of happy. They’ve been together awhile, and it would be nice to see a Hollywood marriage actually work out. It’s good to see that they’re fighting for it.
