Penn, 61, and George tied the knot during the pandemic in July 2020, in an intimate ceremony but had been linked since 2016. Rumours of their nuptials began when they were spotted wearing matching gold wedding bands.

“We did a COVID wedding. By that I mean it was a county commissioner on Zoom and we were at the house, my two children and her brother. And we did it that way,” the actor confirmed the news on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Though Penn and George made their red carpet debut in 2016, a friend of the actress told People in August that the pair had reunited earlier in 2020 after having an on and off romance.

“They got together and then they broke up, and Sean won her back,” the source told the publication following their nuptials. “He realised he had made a mistake and when he felt he might lose her, he worked hard to get her back.”
