The upcoming issue of Gotham
magazine has an interview with Robin Wright Penn
expounding on the "hard times" of marriage, but how all the struggles are worth it in the end, because couple's go through "hard times together, and you come out on the other side."
Awkwardly, the interview seems to have taken place before she and Sean Penn
filed for seperation.The full quote from the interview: That's the work, but that's what you sign up for. And it pays off beautifully, it really does. The outcome, the reward is so great because then your love grows out of those hard times. You have a companion, a partner in it -- you're going through the hard times together, and you come out on the other side. And another wave of difficulty will arise and you'll have the experience of how great the reward was last time. The conditioning of faith is what prevails.
Ouch. Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn filed for seperation at the end of April
, after 13 years of marriage and two children together.
