Sean Penn married Leila George over Zoom

Sean - who has daughter Dylan, 29, and son Hopper, 26, with his second wife Robin Wright - told Seth Meyers on ‘Late Night’ on Monday (03.08.20): “We did a COVID wedding. By that, I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom and we were at the house with my two children and her brother, and we did it that way.”

The 59-year-old actor was first reported to have married Leila - whom he has been dating since 2016 - over the weekend when Irena Medavoy, the wife of 'Black Swan' producer Mike Medavoy, posted a congratulatory message to the newlyweds on Instagram.
She wrote: “We are so happy for @leilageorge #seanpenn getting married. We love you. Thank you for being like family a son to mike we are over the moon to find your soul mate true partner @coreresponse true love that also changes the world for better
"You are meant to be together God Bless you both and the family you have joined. Introducing the Penn's #marriage (sic)”
Meanwhile, Sean - who also formerly married to Madonna - has previously admitted he can be "difficult" in his personal life, but praised Leila for knowing him inside and out.
He said: "Am I difficult? Yeah I think so. I will say I'm a person who feels and expresses energetically, I've misled people into thinking it's all about me. I think the interview you're talking about would be a lady named Leila George, she knows me better than I do on this level, that doesn't mean I agree with her perceptions but I certainly find them fascinating. ... She's the gal in my life."
