Washington, Dec mber 14: Sean Penn has admitted that he never felt loved by someone.There is no shame in my saying that we all want to be loved by someone. As I look back over my life in romance, I don't feel I've ever had that," the 52-year-old activist and actor, who will soon be seen in Gangster Squad, told Esquire for its January 2013 issue.
"I have been the only one that was unaware of the fraud in a few of these circumstances blindly," he said.
Having been married - and divorced - twice, to Madonna from 1985 to 1989, and to Robin Wright Penn from 1996 to 2010, Penn says, "When you get divorced, all the truths that come out, you sit there and you go, " 'What the f--- was I doing? What was I doing believing that this person was invested in this way?'"
In retrospect, he now considers such an experience "a fantastically strong humiliation in the best sense. It can make somebody very bitter and very hard and closed off, but I find it does the opposite to me." (ANI)
