About Sean Penn (1960 – )

He was born with the name of Sean Justin Penn. His father, director Leo Penn, was a Jewish Russian/Lithuanian descendant and his mother, actress Eileen Ryan, was an Irish Catholic. Both of his parents were active in show business. His grandparents ran a New York Jewish delicatessen. Artistic talent runs in his family. His brother, Chris Penn is also an actor, and his brother, Michael Penn is a musician.

Sean began his acting career as a teenager, becoming active in local theater. He worked as an apprentice/assistant under actor/director Pat Hingle. His big break happened after his performance on Broadway, in Heartland. This led to his first film. Sean Penn then moved onto leading roles in films such as Bad Boys. In 1984, Sean's talent as an actor landed him on John Willis' list of "Promising New Actors of 1984", being 1 of 12 such performers listed.

On August 16, 1985, Sean Penn married Madonna, a marriage which ended in divorce on January 10th, 1989. In 1991, Sean met the love of his life, Robin Wright Penn. They lived together, had two children and married in 1996. In 1993, Sean Penn and Robin lost everything in their Malibu home in the fire, leaving Sean with just his family, which he found to be a liberating experience.

Though still known for his far left politics and beliefs, Sean Penn has gotten a hold of his well-known temper and was able to channel it into his Oscar-winning role, portraying Jimmy Marcus, which adds a strong believable quality to this performance.
