Penn later hired Lee as his personal assistant, partly because he wanted to reward Lee for allowing him to play Lee in the film; Penn was also a firm believer in rehabilitation and thought Lee should be successfully reintegrated into society, since he was a free man again.[9] Penn starred in the drama At Close Range

Penn was engaged to actress Elizabeth McGovern, his co-star in Racing with the Moon (1984). He met pop singer Madonna in February 1985,[15] and they married that August on her birthday. The two starred in the panned and much-derided Shanghai Surprise
Shanghai Surprise
(1986), directed by Jim Goddard, and Madonna dedicated her third studio album True Blue (1986) to Penn, referring to him in the liner notes as "the coolest guy in the universe".[16] The relationship was marred by violent outbursts against the press, including one incident when Penn was arrested for assaulting a photographer on a film set; Penn was sentenced to 60 days in jail in mid-1987, of which he served 33 days.[17] Madonna filed for divorce in December 1987[15] but later withdrew the papers, only to file them again in January 1989. Madonna reportedly filed an assault complaint that she was beaten in her Malibu, California
California
home by her estranged husband, but in January 1989, the Associated Press reported that she had "dropped assault charges."[18] Penn was alleged to have struck Madonna on multiple occasions, but in 2015 Madonna stated the allegations were "completely outrageous, malicious, reckless, and false”.[19][20][21] At the end of his first marriage, Penn moved in with actress Robin Wright, and their first child, a daughter named Dylan Frances, was born April 13, 1991.[22] Their second child, son Hopper Jack, was born August 6, 1993.[23] Penn and Wright separated in 1995, during which time he developed a relationship with Jewel, after he spotted her performing on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He invited her to compose a song for his film The Crossing Guard (1995) and followed her on tour.[24] Penn and Wright reconciled, married on April 27, 1996, and lived in Ross, California.[1][25] The couple filed for divorce in December 2007 but reconciled several months later, requesting a court dismissal of their divorce case.[26] In April 2009, Penn filed for legal separation, only to withdraw the case once again when the couple reconciled in May.[27][28][29] On August 12, 2009, Wright Penn filed for divorce again.[30][31] The couple's divorce was finalized on July 22, 2010; the couple reached a private agreement on child and spousal support, division of assets, and custody of Hopper, who was almost 17 at the time.[32] In December 2013, Penn began dating actress Charlize Theron. The two announced their engagement in December 2014. Theron ended their relationship in June 2015.[33] Political views and activism Penn has been outspoken in supporting numerous political and social causes. On December 13–16, 2002, he visited Iraq
Iraq
to protest the Bush Administration's apparent plans for a military strike on Iraq. On June 10, 2005, Penn made a visit to Iran. Acting as a journalist on an assignment for the San Francisco Chronicle, he attended a Friday prayer at Tehran University.[34] On January 7, 2006, Penn was a special guest at the Progressive Democrats of America, where he was joined by author and media critic Norman Solomon, Democratic congressional candidate Charles Brown, and activist Cindy Sheehan. The "Out of Iraq
Iraq
Forum", which took place in Sacramento, California, was organized to promote the anti-war movement calling for an end to the War in Iraq.[35] On December 18, 2006, Penn received the Christopher Reeve
Christopher Reeve

He protested the political exclusion of Nader and other third parties.[37] In October 2008, Penn traveled to Cuba, where he met with and interviewed President Raúl Castro.[38] In February 2012, he stood beside Hugo Chávez

Penn at an anti-war rally in Washington, D.C., January 27, 2007

On October 18, 2002, Penn placed a US$56,000 advertisement in the Washington Post
Washington Post
asking then President George W. Bush
George W. Bush
to end a cycle of violence. It was written as an open letter and referred to the planned attack on Iraq
Iraq
and the War on Terror.[40] In the letter, Penn also criticized the Bush administration for its "deconstruction of civil liberties" and its "simplistic and inflammatory view of good and evil."[41] Penn visited Iraq
Iraq
briefly in December 2002.[40] "Sean is one of the few," remarked his ex-wife Madonna. "Good for him. Most celebrities are keeping their heads down. Nobody wants to be unpopular. But then Americans, by and large, are pretty ignorant of what's going on in the world."[42] The Post advertisement was cited as a primary reason for the development of his relationship with Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez. In one of his televised speeches, Chávez used and read aloud an open letter Penn wrote to Bush.[43] The letter condemned the Iraq
Iraq
War, called for Bush to be impeached, and also called Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice
Condoleezza Rice
"villainously and criminally obscene people." On April 19, 2007, Penn appeared on The Colbert Report
The Colbert Report
and had a "Meta-Free-Phor-All" versus Stephen Colbert
Stephen Colbert
that was judged by Robert Pinsky. This stemmed from some of Penn's criticisms of Bush. His exact quote was "We cower as you point your fingers telling us to support our troops. You and the smarmy pundits in your pocket– those who bathe in the moisture of your soiled and blood-soaked underwear– can take that noise and shove it."[44][45] He won the contest with 10,000,000 points to Colbert's 1.[46] On December 7, 2007, Penn said he supported Ohio Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich
Dennis J. Kucinich
for U.S. President in 2008, and criticized Bush's handling of the Iraq

Filming Milk, 2008

On February 22, 2009, Penn received the Academy Award for Best Actor for the film Milk. In his acceptance speech, he said: "I think that it is a good time for those who voted for the ban against gay marriage to sit and reflect and anticipate their great shame and the shame in their grandchildren's eyes if they continue that way of support. We've got to have equal rights for everyone!"[51] Relief efforts following 2010 Haiti earthquake After the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Penn founded the J/P Haitian Relief Organization,[52] which has been running a 55,000 person tent camp.[53] Due to his visibility as an on-the-ground advocate for rescue and aid efforts in the aftermath, Penn was designated by president Michel Martelly
Michel Martelly
as Ambassador-at-Large for Haiti, the first time that a non-Haitian citizen has been designated as such in the country's history. Penn received the designation on January 31, 2012.[54] Pakistan Penn gained significant attention in the Pakistan

as a dictator.[60] The two were friends, and when Chávez died, Penn said: " Venezuela

In February 2012, Penn met with the President of Argentina, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, in Buenos Aires where he made a statement on the long-running dispute between Argentina
Argentina
and the United Kingdom
United Kingdom
over the Falkland Islands, saying: "I know I came in a very sensitive moment in terms of diplomacy between Argentina
Argentina
and the UK over the Falkland Islands. And I hope that diplomats can establish true dialogue in order to solve the conflict as the world today cannot tolerate ridiculous demonstrations of colonialism. The way of dialogue is the only way to achieve a better solution for both nations."[62][63][64] The comments were taken as support of Argentina's claim to the islands and evoked strong reactions in the British media, with one satirical article in The Daily Telegraph
The Daily Telegraph
requesting that Penn "return his Malibu estate to the Mexicans".[65] Lauren Collins of The New Yorker
The New Yorker
wrote: "As of today, Sean Penn
Sean Penn
is the new Karl Lagerfeld—the man upon whom, having disrespected something dear to the United Kingdom, the British papers most gleefully pile contempt".[66] Penn later claimed that he had been misrepresented by the British press and that his criticism of "colonialism" was a reference to the deployment of Prince William
Prince William
as an air-sea rescue pilot, describing it as a "message of pre-emptive intimidation". He claimed that the Prince's posting meant "the automatic deployment of warships", and stated: "My oh my, aren't people sensitive to the word 'colonialism', particularly those who implement colonialism."[67][68] In a piece written in The Guardian, Penn wrote that "the legalisation of Argentinian immigration to the Malvinas/ Falkland Islands
Falkland Islands
is one that it seems might have been addressed, but for the speculative discovery of booming offshore oil in the surrounding seas this past year". He further wrote that "irresponsible journalism" had suggested "that I had taken a specific position against those currently residing in the Malvinas/Falkland Islands, that they should either be deported or absorbed into Argentine rule. I neither said, nor insinuated that".[68][69] Oscar green card joke

Penn promoting The Last Face
The Last Face
at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival

At the 87th Academy Awards, Penn presented the award for Best Picture. Before presenting the award to Mexican Alejandro González Iñárritu for Birdman, Penn joked, "Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?" Some people deemed the remark racist towards Latin Americans, and offensive to those who attempt to legally immigrate into the United States.[70][71] Iñarritu said that it was a joke between him and Penn, who worked together on 21 Grams, and that he found it "hilarious." Penn later went on record defending his comments, saying, "I have absolutely no apologies. In fact, I have a big 'fuck you' for every...anybody who is so stupid not to have gotten the irony when you've got a country that is so xenophobic. If they had their way, you wouldn't have great filmmakers like Alejandro working in this country. Thank God we do."[72][73] Lee Daniels
Lee Daniels
lawsuit In an interview published September 16, 2015, director and showrunner Lee Daniels
Lee Daniels
responded to criticism about Terrence Howard's continued career in light of his domestic violence issues by referencing Penn's rumored history of domestic violence, saying: "[Terrence] ain't done nothing different than Marlon Brando
Marlon Brando
or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he's some f—in' demon."[74] In response, Penn launched a $10 million defamation suit against Daniels, alleging that he had never been arrested for or charged with domestic violence.[75] Penn dropped the lawsuit in May 2016 after Daniels retracted his statement and apologized.[76] El Chapo interview A day after Mexican officials announced the capture of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán in a bloody raid, Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone
revealed on January 9, 2016 that Sean Penn, along with actress Kate del Castillo, had conducted a secret interview with El Chapo prior to his arrest.[77][78] Del Castillo was contacted by Guzmán's lawyer (who was under CISEN
CISEN
surveillance) to talk about producing a biographical film over Guzmán and communication increased following Guzmán's escape from prison in July 2015.[79] The deal for the interview was brokered by del Castillo.[80] According to published text messages with del Castillo, Guzmán did not know who Sean Penn
Sean Penn
was.[81] CISEN released photographs of del Castillo at the meetings with Guzmán's lawyers and of the arrival of the actress and Penn to Mexico. The interview was criticized by some, including the White House, which called the interview "maddening".[82] Mexican authorities said they were seeking to question Penn over the interview, which had not been approved by either the American or Mexican government.[83] Penn and del Castillo's meeting with Guzmán is under investigation by the Attorney General of Mexico.[84] Filmography Main article: Sean Penn
