Sean Penn still loves the legendary songstress, Madonna, even after their separation all those years ago. During his appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on the 27th of March, the 59-year-old actor admitted he still had strong feelings for his ex-wife.
The 53-year-old host, Colbert – during a game called “Sean Penny For Your Thoughts – asked the Academy Award-winner if he would choose Britney Spears or Madonna.
The actor said he couldn’t compare such things because he loves his “first wife very much.” In between drags of his cigarette, Penn stated it’s impossible to make such a comparison.
Colbert said that Penn was wrong because people compare them all of the time. To finish off the question, Colbert asked him once again if he was going for Madonna, and the actor said, “Sure.”
As you may know, Penn and Madonna were married back in the 1980’s before getting divorced in 1989. They’ve been close friends ever since and he even attended several of her concerts. According to a fan who saw Penn at her concert, the actor could be heard saying, “she’s so hot,” while Madonna performed her MDNA show.
Back in January of 2010, Madonna and Penn sparked rumors of their re-engagement, but despite a three-hour romantic evening, sources claimed they were not back together.
Madonna can supposedly only date someone she “can control,” and Penn is impossible to lay the reigns on.
The insider shared, “all of her fans wish she would marry Sean again because they were so good together and were genuinely happy. It should’ve worked out the first time.” Madonna was also married to Guy Richie from 2000 until 2008, and on the other hand, Penn married Robin Wright in 1996, but they split up back in 2010.
