Sean Penn is keeping a ring on this – for now.
The Oscar-winning actor kept his wedding ring when he stepped out on Saturday in Malibu, Calif., A day after his wife of more than a year, Leila George, filed for divorce.
Penn, 61, met an unidentified man for lunch at Restaurant Ollo. After a bite to eat, the two continued chatting outside while Penn took a cigarette break.
George, 29, filed for the dissolution of his marriage to Penn in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday.
It is not yet clear why the two decided to go their separate ways after just one year of marriage. A representative for Penn did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Marks told Page Six that she felt “a little bit under attack” …
California Divorce Law requires a mandatory six-month waiting period before the court issues an order on the matter. If the breakup is amicable (and they can separate without a conflict), they could finalize their divorce by the end of March 2022.
Penn previously admitted that he and George were eager to get married, so they did it on Zoom in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We had a COVID wedding,” Penn explained when appearing on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” in August. “By that I mean he was a county commissioner on Zoom, we were home, my two kids and his brother, and we did it that way.”
Penn and George dated for four years before officially saying ‘yes’.
This is Penn’s third marriage. He was previously married to Madonna from 1985 to 1989, followed by a 14-year marriage to Robin Wright from 1996 to 2010.
Penn and Wright share two children: actress Dylan, 29, and son Hopper, 28.
