Back in 2007, Sean Penn filed for divorce from wife Robin Wright Penn, then they decided to give it another go, but it seems that it hasn't worked out, as Sean just filed for legal separation, "Extra" has exclusively learned.
The two have been married since 1996 and have two teenage children. It's been a big year for Penn, 48, who won nearly every major award for his work in "Milk," including a Best Actor Oscar.
Last time they filed, the couple sought joint custody of the kids, which will likely be the case again this time. Penn was previously married to Madonna.

The producers "are going to take some risks, many risks, some bold," said Sid Ganis, President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, at the annual luncheon on Monday.
Oscar nominees including Robert Downey, Jr., Penelope Cruz, Sean Penn and Anne Hathaway attended the luncheon at the Beverly Hilton.
Laurence Mark and Bill Condon are producers this year, and it's the first time either of them have produced the world's top film awards show. Mark has produced hits like "Jerry Maguire" and "Dreamgirls," which Condon wrote and directed.
People's Sexiest Man Alive Hugh Jackman will host the three-hour show, and an opening monologue has been cut for more spontaneity.
Ganis informed the nominees that if they win, to "be brief, be personal and, of course, be heartfelt." He also told them to "stay alert" because the producers are trying new things.
