Actor and Oscar winner Sean Penn has filed for divorce from his actress wife Robin Wright Penn after 13 years of marriage.

People reports that the actor filed court papers last week in which he is seeking joint physical and legal custody of their two children, daughter Dylan who is 18 and 15-year-old son Hopper.

The couple originally started divorce proceedings in December 2007 but called it off after a reconciliation.

Penn won the Best Actor Oscar for his performance in 'Milk' earlier this year.

The pair married in 1996 and starred in several films together. Penn was previously married to Madonna.
