Sean Penn taking a break from filmsJune 17th, 2009 - 6:06 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, June 17 (ANI): Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn is taking a break from his movie career, and has thus withdrawn from his next two films.
The ‘Milk’ actor has quit his upcoming role in action movie ‘Cartel’ and cancelled plans to work alongside Benicio Del Toro and Jim Carrey in ‘The Three Stooges’.
Penn has recently reconciled with wife Robin Wright Penn after the couple split for the second time in 18 months.
And it is rumoured that the actor is now taking a break to spend more time with his partner and their two teenage children.
The actor’s publicist Mara Buxbaum has confirmed the news to E! Online.
“We indeed informed both productions that Sean was not available now. If for whatever reason the start dates on these productions were to be postponed, Sean would happily remain involved,” Contactmusic quoted Buxbaum as saying. (ANI)
