New York (ANI): Actor Sean Penn has withdrawn his motion for legal separation from wife of 13 years, Robin Wright. The two-time Oscar-winning actor had filed papers in California's Marin County Superior Court seeking divorce from his better half. But the I am Sam star, who shares daughter Dylan Frances, 18, and son Hopper Jack, 15 with Robin, decided to pull back.
"It was an arrogant mistake," the New York Daily News quoted him as saying. Friends of the couple think the move to turn to court stemmed from a fit of rage.
A pal said: "They love each other like crazy but they fight like crazy. They may have gotten into a fight where she said she wanted a divorce and he filed just to beat her to the punch, even though he doesn't want a divorce. That doesn't mean they're suddenly happy and in love. It's anyone's guess where this is going."
The pair had launched a divorce petition in December 2007 but it was later dismissed at their request.
