Exes Sean Penn, Robin Wright seen together for the first time in years

One of Hollywood’s most famous couples has met again, and they’re reunited again for the first time in years.

Exes Sean Penn and Robin Wright were pictured traveling together at LAX over the weekend, less than a year after their divorce from their partners.

In photos obtained exclusively by Page Six, Ben is seen carrying a black backpack while wearing a casual beige T-shirt, cargo pants, a black jacket, and winter boots.

She looked elegant in a black turtleneck, which she paired with skinny jeans and dark brown boots.

The duo, who had not been seen together in public for years, were married from 1996 until 2010.

Representatives for the former couple did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.

The outing came just four months after Wright, 56, split from husband Clément Giraudet. House of Cards filed for divorce from the Saint Laurent executive in September after four years of marriage.

She noted that the date of their separation was July 31, and indicated that the reason was “irreconcilable differences,” according to documents obtained by TMZ at the time.

The “Princess Bride” star also wrote that “all assets are his/her separate property” as laid out in the postnuptial agreement.

The now-separated couple said “I do” in August 2018 in France, where they hosted a small, bohemian-themed reception.

Meanwhile, Ben finalized his split from Australian actress Leila George, 30, in early 2022 after she filed for divorce from him the previous year.

Ben and George, who was 32 years his junior and Vincent D’Onofrio’s daughter, dated for four years before secretly tying the knot in July 2020, with Ben confirming their “COVID wedding” a few days later on “Late Night With Seth” Meyers. “

The “Risky Business” star, 62, later spoke out about the failure of their marriage, explaining that he was the one who “set up the marriage” because he only saw his wife at the time “on a daily basis.”

“Technically we were married for one year, but for five years, I was a very neglected man,” Ben told Hollywood Authentic in April 2022.

“[I] I allowed myself to believe that my place in a lot of other things was very important, and that included my place in being totally depressed and rushing into alcohol and Ambien at 11am, by watching the news, by watching the Trump era, by watching it and just despairing.”

Penn was previously married to Madonna from 1985 to 1989, and began dating Wright shortly thereafter.

The “She’s So Lovely” co-stars welcomed their daughter, Dylan, in 1991 and son, Hopper Jack, in 1993 before walking down the aisle in 1996.

“Marriage isn’t easy,” Ben told Entertainment Weekly in 1997, “but it’s great most of the time. I love Robin. I’ve always loved her.”

While Ben’s caregiver continued to rise, Wright’s stopped because she spent time at home raising her children.

“We were learning as we went,” she told Vanity Fair in 2015.

“We agreed as parents that we wouldn’t work at the same time so one of us would always be with the kids. He was making more money than I was at the time, so it was a simple decision: ‘Go work — I’ll stay with the kids.'”

She added, “I turned down a lot of movies because I wanted to be a mother… They stopped making them.”

Wright first filed for divorce from Ben in 2007, but they reconciled shortly thereafter. The couple went through this process several times before finalizing their split in 2010.
