The American Actor and Film Director seems to have found a new direction in love. Let’s see what he has been romantically up to in recent times.

Sean Justin Penn, 63 is an American actor and film director. He has won Academy Awards for his roles in the mystery drama Mystic River (2003) and the biopic Milk (2008).

Penn, born August 17, 1960 in Santa Monica, California, to actor and director Leo Penn and actress Eileen Ryan (née Annucci).

His older brother is musician Michael Penn. His younger brother, actor Chris Penn, died in 2006. His father was Jewish, the son of emigrants from MerkinėLithuania, while his mother was a Catholic of Irish and Italian descent. 

Penn was raised in a secular home in Malibu, California, and attended Malibu Park Junior High School and Santa Monica High School, as Malibu had no high school at that time. He began making short films with some of his childhood friends including actors Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen, who lived near his home.

Olga Korotyayeva, 43, seems to have stolen the heart of the award-winning actor.

The actor 63, was pictured walking hand-in-hand with his new flame as they took his dog out for a walk in Malibu, California, on Sunday as reported by PEOPLE.

Penn and Korotyayeva were first linked romantically in June after they were photographed taking a stroll in Rome. During the outing in the Italian capital city, the couple was spotted embracing and kissing as they walked and shopped together.

Not long after, the Mystic River star was seen again with his new flame in Europe.

In July, the actor was photographed kissing her in Saint-Tropez, France, outside of Senequier, where they enjoyed breakfast. The actor had his arm around Korotyayeva while the two strolled through the coastal town.

Later that month, the couple continued their PDA spree stateside. They were photographed holding hands in Times Square in New York City.

What did we find about Penn’s previous relationships?

Penn was engaged to actress Elizabeth McGovern, his co-star in Racing with the Moon (1984). He also had a brief relationship with Susan Sarandon.

Penn later met singer-songwriter Madonna on set of her “Material Girl” music video in January 1985. On August 16, 1985, they married on Madonna’s 27th birthday; Penn turned 25 the next day.

Unfortunately, their marriage was marred by Penn’s violent outbursts against the press, and Madonna filed for divorce in December 1987, but withdrew the papers two weeks later. 

In January 1989, Madonna filed for divorce again and reportedly withdrew an assault complaint against Penn following an incident at their Malibu, California, home during the New Year weekend. Penn was alleged to have struck Madonna on multiple occasions during their marriage. However, Madonna stated the allegations were “completely outrageous, malicious, reckless, and false” in 2015.

In 1989, Penn began dating actress Robin Wright, and their first child, a daughter named Dylan Frances, was born April 13, 1991. Their second child, son Hopper Jack, was born on August 6, 1993. Penn and Wright separated in 1995, during which time he developed a relationship with Jewel, after he spotted her performing on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. He invited her to compose a song for his film The Crossing Guard (1995) and subsequently followed her on tour.

Penn reconciled with Wright and they married on April 27, 1996. The couple filed for divorce in December 2007 but reconciled several months later, requesting a court dismissal of their divorce case. In April 2009, Penn filed for legal separation, only to withdraw the case once again when the couple reconciled in May. On August 12, 2009, Wright filed for divorce again. The couple’s divorce was finalized on July 22, 2010; the couple reached a private agreement on child and spousal support, division of assets, and custody of Hopper, who was almost 17 at the time.

In December 2013, Penn began dating South African actress Charlize Theron. Their relationship ended in June 2015. Despite reports that they were engaged, Theron stated that they were never engaged.

Penn began a relationship with Australian actress Leila George in 2016. They married on July 30, 2020. George filed for divorce on October 15, 2021. Their divorce was finalized on April 22, 2022.
