Sean Penn Marriage Interview: “What The F*** Was I Doing?” Asks Gangster Squad Actor

Sean Penn’s marriage to Robin Wright broke down almost three years ago. In an interview with Esquire magazine, Penn reveals that he doesn’t feel as though he’s ever been loved by someone. “As I look back over my life in romance, I don't feel I've ever had that,” he says. “I have been the only one that was unaware of the fraud in a few of these circumstances blindly.”

Talking about his divorce, which made headline news at the time that he and Robin split, he says “When you get divorced, all the truths that come out, you sit there and you go, What the fuck was I doing? What was I doing believing that this person was invested in this way? Which is a fantastically strong humiliation in the best sense. It can make somebody very bitter and very hard and closed off, but I find it does the opposite to me.”

Well, Penn might reckon that he’s not bitter but he’s still got a pretty caustic tongue in his head. In an audio excerpt from the interview, Sean can be heard saying “the biggest thing that frustrates me in the world, is, I just wanna say to everybody, you know that thing above your neck? It’s not decoration. You have to use it. You’re supposed to f***ing use it… I don’t care about the heart. The heart is in the brain. That’s not less emotional, that’s not less romantic.” Wow. Valentine’s day must be a real blast with you, eh, Sean?
