Award-winning actor Sean Penn’s wedding may have been even more under the radar than the already super private romantic relationship he’s had with actress Leila George since 2016. So, what do we know about this Australian beauty?
Leila Has Lived All Over The Globe
Born in Sydney, Australia to a producer and an actress, Leila was on the move pretty early. She joined her mother in travelling all over England, then later went back to Sydney, and then finally landed in New York City to be closer to her father.
She’s A Jack Of All Trades
Before landing her first big starring acting role in 2016, Leila has worked in production, assisting on sets, and even being a camera operator.
Another Hollywood Age Gap
Leila is just 29, younger than one of Sean’s children, and over 30 years younger than Sean himself. But after being together over 5 years, it looks like this is a relationship that’s going to last, with tons of support from family and friends all around the two.
The Couple’s Friend Nearly Spilled The Beans
It was imperative to Leila and Sean that the wedding be top secret, but it almost wasn’t. The couple’s friend, Irena Medavoy, posted pictures of the wedding rings on her Instagram. She deleted the post shortly after, but it was enough to get the rumor mill churning.
The Reveal Was Beyond Casual
Much like their relationship aesthetic and personalities, Sean and Leila casually revealed that they’d tied the knot in a COVID wedding through a Zoom call. While on a late-night talk show, Sean held up his hand to reveal a wedding band on his finger.
