Forrest Gump actress Robin Wright Penn -- who has two children, Dylan, 18, and 16-year-old Hopper, with Oscar-winner Sean Penn -- filed divorce papers on August 12 in Marin County, California, citing "irreconcilable differences." Robin is not seeking spousal support and the couple have agreed to share custody of Hopper.

The news comes after the actress revealed she is at a “crossroads” in her relationship with Sean and they are living apart. Robin -- who married Sean in 1996 -- said: I hit that crossroad a while ago. The 'I know what I don't want' was flashing in neon lights. I have no regrets. I, we, have two amazing children we raised together.

There's no limbo anymore. There's no time. I'm too old for this s**t.
In April, Sean filed for separation from Robin but a month later asked California's Marin County Superior Court to dismiss the case claiming it was an "arrogant mistake."

It was not the first time the couple had announced they were divorcing only to change their minds. Sean, 48, first filed for divorce in December 2007, but his petition was dismissed. Three days later Robin filed her own paperwork.

However, in April 2008, they made a request to have their divorce petition dismissed as they wanted to give their relationship another chance.
