Even though Penn’s father is Jewish and his mother is Catholic, he grew up in a nonreligious home. Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen, two actors who used to live close by and were his friends as a child, watched him in high school.

Sean Penn’s Acting Career
Penn’s first movie role was as a high school military cadet in the action-drama “Taps,” which came out in 1981. The next year, he was in the hit comedy “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” (1982), which also stars Forest Whitaker, Eric Stoltz, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Phoebe Cates. His role as the chill stoner/surfer Jeff Spicoli helped make the word “dude” more common in American society. But Penn’s part as troubled teen Mick O’Brien in the drama “Bad Boy” (1983) really made him known as a serious actor.
During the 1980s, Penn kept acting in movies like “Racing with the Moon” (1984), “The Falcon and the Snowman” (1985), “At Close Range” (1986), and “Shanghai Surprise” (1985), in which he starred with his new wife, singer Madonna. He stopped acting in the early 1990s to focus on his work as a director. He came back to movies with a small part in “Carlito’s Way” (1993), for which he was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor.
He kept his good luck going by getting the lead part in “Dead Man Walking” (1995), for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor. In 1999, for his part in “Sweet and Lowdown,” he was nominated for another Academy Award. In 2001, for his role as a mentally ill father in “I Am Sam,” he was given another nomination. In 2003, for his lead part in the crime drama “Mystic River,” he finally won his first Academy Award.

They then did a complete makeover and repair of the 2.2-acre property, which is across the street from a police station.
The couple who were getting a divorce put the house on the market for $15 million in 2008, just before the real estate bubble burst. In the end, they took $8 million in January 2010.
