I Gave Her My Heart And She Gave Me A Penn

It's only been eleven years, but it seemed like so much looooonger! Finally, Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn are ending their tumultuous marriage, according to People:
Sean Penn and wife Robin Wright Penn are divorcing, their rep, Mara Buxbaum, confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

No other details were immediately available. The couple, who've been married 11 years, have two children together, Hopper Jack, 14, and Dylan Frances, 16.

Penn, 47, and Wright, 41, began dating in the early '90s and married in 1996. They also have starred together in several films, including 1998's Hurlyburly and 1997's She's So Lovely, directed by Nick Cassavetes.

"Marriage ain't easy, but it's great most of the time," Penn told Entertainment Weekly in 1997. "I love Robin. I've always loved her."

I always thought it was amazing--and possibly a sign of mental illness--that she stayed with him as long as she did, given the fact that he's, you know, SEAN PENN. Over the course of their relationship she went from a sweet-looking dewy youth to a stricken ghost of a human being. I'm glad she got out of there, but, boy, she took her sweet time...

I remember how much I loved Sean Penn and Nicolas Cage when I was a wee lass (Racing With The Moon! Bad Boys! Valley Girl! How I wept with the intensity of my crush!) and now Sean makes me want to hit him with a sharp stick because of his complete and utter lack of humor, and Nicolas Cage is a walking freak show with a deformed mouth and no hair. Luckily, Clive Owen and Vincent D'Onofrio have taken up the slack!
