Sean Bean arrested for assaulting wife

It looks like Lord of the Rings cutie Sean Bean could be headed for divorce court for the fourth time – he’s just been arrested for assaulting his wife Georgina.

The 49-year-old star of Lord of the Rings was taken to a police station after his wife, Georgina, called police during a late night argument, it is believed.

She is said to have told officers that Mr Bean grabbed and assaulted her during a row at their £2m home in Belsize Park, North London.

The actor, currently on a break from filming the television series, Sharpe in India, was held for around six hours.

He was released on Friday, and told that no further action would be taken against him.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said officers investigated an allegation of domestic assault and that a man was arrested and taken to a London police station where he was bailed and released without further action.

Speaking at the couple’s home on Friday, Mrs Bean played down the incident, saying: “Everything is OK… There’s no problem between us.”


It seems like no serious assault has taken place, but it is obviously more than the verbal assault that led to Christian Bale’s arrest in the same country.

Sean married his wife at a registry office on February 19th of this year, a month after canceling a wedding only 24 hours before the event was to take place. The reasons given was personal issues and work commitments. He has been married three times previously, one of which only lasted a few months.

The Daily Mail also reports that they had a ‘bust up’ that left them both ‘bruised and bleeding’ in July 2006.

This is Sean’s forth marriage but I can’t find any reports of domestic violence with his other wives, so perhaps Georgette and Sean have a volatile relationship. Ever since his canceled wedding I’ve thought this relationship was heading for divorce.

    this is his fourth marriage…maybe that explains the 3 divorces.

    With that said, I loved him in LOTR and I was sad when the Uri-Kai thingy killed him. I liked him as the bad guy in National Treasure too.

  2. Bodhi says:

    Georgina or Georgette?

    If a dude canceled the wedding & then decided to un-cancel it, I’d tell him to fuck off! I’d never be able to trust him after that

  3. Kaiser says:

    I know this is going to piss off my fellow feminists, but Sean Bean has the look of a man who knows how to have hot, dirty, rough sex.

    I know the wifebeating should piss me off, but all I can think about is teh sexy…

  4. Julia says:

    To Kaiser: Don’t feel bad. There is nothing anti-feminist about thinking the guy is hot. It isn’t like you said that women are for baking and baby-making or anything.

  5. Meredith says:

    I’m having one of those moments too, kaiser. Yum.

  6. Kaiser says:

    @Julia & Meredith – Right? It’s pretty early in the morning to be this hot and bothered.

    And women are only for baking & making babies… but only after they have hot, dirty, rough sex with Sean Bean. :)

  7. Bodhi says:

    Yeah, I’ve always lusted after him myself.

    I almost typed “Mr. Bean”, but then I stopped myself… :)

  8. ri23 says:

    Eh. Don’t really care about his personal life. He’s hot on screen, so I guess it’s okay to be a Beanstalker.

  9. Granger says:

    I’m hopping on the hot, sweaty, dirty sex with Mr Bean train. :lol:

  10. kristin says:

    he’s incredibly appealing and such a good actor, too. loved him in “ronin” and wasn’t he also in “north county” or whatever that anti-sexual harassment movie was with charlize theron? hope he has a spiritual awakening and their love is healed and lasts forever.

  11. Linda says:

    Couldn’t she have done her hair for her wedding day? Would it have killed her?

    Look at your roots, my dear!

  12. Jaundice Machine says:

    Kaiser – I think you’re onto something. Perhaps they forgot their safeword and before you know it . . .

  13. Kaiser says:

    @Jaundice – “Don’t stop, Sean! Don’t… oh no! Palameno! Palameno, for the love of God!”

  14. Mairead says:

    Ooooooooh Sean Bean… :oops: (LOVE the Beanstalker comment BTW :wink: – I’ve been one of them for about 13 years now :twisted: )

    He’s the man you’d love to go out with and etc. etc. :wink: but there’s no way he’s long-term relationship or marriage material.
    He himself admitted that his first marriage broke up because it basically got between him and his one true love – watching football on the telly.

  15. Mairead says:

    LOL @ Kaiser.. I can imagine Sean’s response…

    “eh up lass! I’m tellin’ thee – I thought t’safe word was pimento! Bleedin’ heck”

  16. geronimo says:

    No lust here, way too ‘Yorkshire’ for me (I know, generalising, don’t care) but I do go for that unreconstructed earthy thing and he definitely is that: football, beer, pigeons, sex in that order.

  17. Mairead says:

    Could be worse geronimo – he could be from Essex *shudder*

    (nowt wrong with Essex, but the accent goes straight through me – and I even have to lower the volume when watching Denise van Outen, and I think she’s great)

    Could we tempt you with a wee dram of Ewan, geronimo? :twisted:

  18. Because I say So says:

    I love the Beanstalker comments. too funny :D A little rough for my taste, but I guess that’s the point, right?

  19. Vancouver Girl says:

    Sean Bean is no. 1 on my Freebie Five list! Yummy!!!

  20. geronimo says:

    Oh aye, a wee dram of Ewan always goes down a treat. Celts and Javier Bardem always welcome at (and on, and under) my table, Mairead. :twisted:

    Re Bean, wasn’t the accent at all, just his particular brand of ‘Yorkshireness’!!

  21. Anne says:

    Oh one could only hope it heads for a divorce court and soon. Good lord why did he marry her in the first place. She is trashy. I could go for some rough sex with Sean. Hell any sort of sex with him. :mrgreen:

  22. Kim says:

    Right from the start this relationship was doomed. Think comes down to Mr. Hot Sean Bean grew up realized he wants someone to spend the rest of his life with, but just never picked the right woman to do it with. I think his wife cries wolf a lot looking for more attention on her and not on him.
