Sean Penn - 'Exciting And Difficult' Husband Sean Penn

Subscribe to Sean Penn alerts

Sean Penn is "exciting and difficult" to be married to.

The 'Milk' actor split from actress Robin Wright after 14 years of marriage in 2010, and while they had their ups and downs within their marriage, Robin insists it never became tawdry.

She said: "I would use the words 'definitely never boring' to describe our marriage. It was exciting and difficult. I spent most of my life with this person."

The couple have two children, daughter Dylan Frances, 20, and son Hopper Jack, 18, and Robin is now planning to concentrate on raising them and her movie career rather than looking for love again.

She added to The Times newspaper: "Would I Marry again? No. But never say never. Why marry? It's a beautiful fortress, but I don't need it."

Robin is returning to mainstream films in 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' after a period spent tending to her family, which gave her valuable life experience.

She added: "It wasn't a premeditated thought - 'I'm going to stop my career in mainstream films' - it just wasn't a priority. The children were my world. Being a parent makes you look at your authentic self much faster than you would normally. Having children is like taking a truth serum. We all unintentionally screw up our children: it's a learning curve."
