Sean Penn’s ex-wife calls their marriage ‘exciting and difficult’
Washington: Sean Penn’s ex wife has said that though their marriage had their ups and downs, it never became boring.
The ‘Milk’ actor split from his wife, actress Robin Wright, after 14 years of marriage in 2010.
“I would use the words ‘definitely never boring’ to describe our marriage. It was exciting and difficult. I spent most of my life with this person,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling the Times newspaper.
The couple has two children, daughter Dylan Frances, 20, and son Hopper Jack, 18, and Wright is now planning to concentrate on raising them and on her movie career.
She returns to mainstream films with ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ after a period spent tending to her family, which gave her valuable life experience.
“It wasn’t a premeditated thought - ‘I’m going to stop my career in mainstream films’ - it just wasn’t a priority. The children were my world,” she said.
“Being a parent makes you look at your authentic self much faster than you would normally. Having children is like taking a truth serum. We all unintentionally screw up our children: it’s a learning curve,” she said.
