Robin Wright with Sean Penn in Cannes !


The Cannes festival ended yesterday and here, we keep a rather good memory of it while seeing there the confirmation of the reunion between Robin Wright (ex-Kelly Capwell) and her husband Sean Penn.
Since the announce of the divorce requirement of Robin (see the News of 01/03/2008) in last December, a second rumour ran to say that the request would have been cancelled by the couple in April.
Despite the infidelity accusations of Sean Penn by the press, Robin was well in his company in Cannes, where the actor-director was the festival president.
We wish a new time long life to the couple !
