Sean Penn and Robin Wright are separating, citing irreconcilable differences.
The double Oscar winner filed the petition on April 23 in Marin County Superior Court in San Rafael, Calif., according to court papers.
Penn and his actress wife have been married 13 years. Penn has requested joint legal and physical custody of their 18-year-old daughter, Dylan Francis, and 15-year-old son, Hopper Jack.
This isn't the first indication of marital strife. The Penns filed for divorce in December 2007 but dismissed their petition several months later.
