Penn Is Private
Sean Penn, Best Actor Oscar-winner, left his wife out of his Oscar acceptance speech on purpose!
Robin Wright Penn and her newly Oscar-kissed hubby Sean Penn, who won Best Actor for his role in Milk, are in an on-again phase of their long and bumpy marriage. Reports last year had the couple splitting up due to Sean's alleged transgressions with Russian hookers.
When asked about the omission by Nancy O'Dell, Sean said the couple discussed it ahead of time and that "She knows" how he feels about her.
