Sean Penn began dating Australian actress Leila George in 2016 and they subsequently got married on July 30 last year in a private ceremony. He had announced the news during his appearance on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" in August the same year. Holding up his gold wedding band, Sean Penn informed Meyers that he had a Covid wedding. "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 61-year-old had said back then.
