Sean Penn & Robin Wright ‘are both single right now & get along great’

Y’all, we need to pay closer attention to this unsettling Ham Drama. In recent weeks, Sean Penn and Robin Wright have been seen together several times in LA. They’ve been divorced from each other for over a decade and they used to talk so much sh-t about each other. Then they both remarried other people, and in 2022, both of those marriages came to an end. Sean and Robin’s kids are grown and it’s like they’re playing out the plot line of Nancy Meyers’ It’s Complicated. Only angrier and douchier.

Sean Penn and Robin Wright are happy to spend time together again — but they’re not back together as a couple, a source says. The pair — who were married from 1996 to 2010 — recently sparked rumors that they rekindled things after they were spotted together at the Los Angeles International Airport and in Los Angeles for a meetup.

But an insider tells PEOPLE they’re not a romantic item.

“They are both single right now and get along great,” the source says. “Sean has always said that Robin is the love of his life. He regrets many things that happened during their marriage. He really enjoys spending time with her now.”

The exes were spotted together at LAX last week carrying their bags up an escalator in a rare public appearance together. The two were last photographed in 2017 heading to New York’s John F. Kennedy airport. Reps for both stars didn’t immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment about the sighting.

That quote made me stop in my tracks. An insider saying “Sean has always said that Robin is the love of his life. He regrets many things that happened during their marriage” is basically a confirmation that Sean is trying to win back Robin. This is Penn trying to “court” his ex-wife. Don’t fall for it, Robin! Stay far away. Jesus.

    And Sean is the love of Mafonna’s life. I’m sensing the makings of a great reality show here!…

  4. j.ferber says:

    I’m sure he can be very charming. He has also been violent and unfaithful.

  5. SKE says:

    He has not always said Robin was the love of his life. Until recently he was refusing to say her name at all and making disparaging remarks about her to the press. He’s definitely the guy who gaslights and abuses you and then calls you crazy when you leave him. Just…no, Robin. No.

      Oh please, in the first 5 years post divorce and then again when Charlize bailed, Sean acted like an angry 12 year old lashing out at the fact he was rejected. Also statistically speaking, abusers will try to win back old partners and prove they changed.

      It was clear in the years leading up to the divorce that Robin was sick of him and he wanted her to beg and plead for him to stay and when she didn’t and actually encouraged divorce, that seemed to crush him for awhile. We saw a similar pattern when he and Charlize had their thing and then she ghosted him. Sean doesn’t actually love Robin, his ego needs to prove something in regards to her. I wouldn’t be surprised if he believes Robin is the “love of his life” because she put up with him the longest. To me, this looks like a rich overprivileged a**h**e who needs to prove that he still meant something to her.

    Talk about toxic masculinity!!! ROBIN! You’re too smart to fall for his ham-fisted schtick!

    We’re all like the audience in a horror movie yelling at the girl walking into the abandoned building where the axe murderer is waiting!

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Oh @ C-Shell, thank you for your brilliant response as it brought me a great deal of laughter that I was in desperate need of!!! Chefs kiss 💋

    Don’t want to address Sean Penn here (think he is gross and she should stay away), but I was recently rewatching Princess Bride, and Robin is so pretty in that, I had totally forgotten she was in it hehe

  8. JackieJacks says:

    Looks like two people who used to be together and who are now lonely but spending time and seeing how things work out in light of the fact that they had kids together. Eh – Penn is a douche but Robin knows what she’s getting into with that mess. Whatever – this looks like the definition of insanity.

  9. what's inside says:

    It is difficult to leave an abuser in a dysfunctional relationship particularly when they are being Dr. Jekyl and hiding Mr. Hyde.

    To quote the great Kennedy Davenport: “Girl, please! No. Sorry. Next!”

    It’s extremely hard to leave an abuser and frighteningly easy to go back to them even after decades. I’m hoping Robin has done the therapy and continues to do so because it helps keep survivors safe.

    My mom and dad were married for 16 years. They divorced after my dad endangered my youngest brother’s life. My mom packed up the same day when he went to work, pulled my other brother and me out of school and ran.

    Because my dad is an abuser, he dragged out the divorce until that same little brother (7 at the time it started) was 18. 11 years to finalize.

    I love my dad. It IS complicated as someone said upthread. But I also remember the horrible things he did to my mom, and he will NEVER admit to them. My mom and I are really close now, she’s done a great job trying not to smear my dad, but she also knows I remember so we have really honest discussions about it. And she is a very different person from the mom she was when I was a kid into young adulthood. She’s freer, she laughs a lot, takes risks, is flaky but loves her grandkids. And she wouldn’t dream of going back to my dad. BUT – they still talk because they share three kids and they want to be on the same page with that. Even though we are grown up. We still struggle. They still worry. I’m hoping maybe they’re spending more time together because maybe one of their adult kids is getting married, or something such as that. Because even with all the awful shit my dad did, and what my brothers and I were put through, I also remember how he and my mom put their problems aside for things like prom, graduation, weddings, new babies, funerals. I wonder if that’s what’s going on here and the crap about Sean trying to win her back is to cover up something private and personal.

      Thank you so much for sharing this story. It’s so hard. My best wishes to you and your family.

    Oh sweet Lord please no. How does he do this? How does this giant orange ham get smart women to just lower their standards like this?

  13. Nes says:

    He’s just so actively unappealing to me that I am stunned that he’s able to romance these amazing women. WHAT IS IT?

  14. Mar says:

    Well at least she knows what she’s getting into. I think the comments about not truly loving her were out of hurt and jealousy.
    They actually look really good together

  15. Emily_C says:

    Master manipulators are so incredibly difficult to escape from. Been there done that. I’m the one who ended it, he made overtures to get me back and I shut him down, but it took me years to start to get over him, and if he had kept hanging around? I dunno.

  16. Kate says:

    She can do so much better.

    No ma’am. Adopt the policy to never du repeats, redos, reruns, or sequels. Just isn’t worth it…
