He's got Oscars. Accolades. International fame. But what Sean Penn says he lacks in his life is love.
"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, tells 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 says.

It's been 25 years since The Princess Bride's magical tale first stole audiences' hearts.
To celebrate the anniversary – and the film's Blu-ray release on Wednesday – the cast reunited for a screening at Alice Tully Hall in New York on Tuesday.
Robin Wright and Cary Elwes, whose on-screen love made the film a cult classic, joined Mandy Patinkin (Inigo Montoya), Chris Sarandon (Prince Humperdinck), Wallace Shawn (Vizzini), Carol Kane (Valerie), Bill Crystal (Miracle Max) and director Rob Reiner.

A picture – or series of pictures – can speak 1,000 words.
Robin Wright and actor Ben Foster, who starred together in the film Rampart, were spotted earlier this week having an intimate dinner date at a low-key Italian restaurant in Australia.
A rep for Foster had no comment, while Wright's couldn't be reached, but photos show the pair looking cozy. They are seen gazing across the table from each other, Wright touching Foster's face and Foster kissing Wright's hand. Another photo shows the couple embracing outside the restaurant.

Together since 1989 and married in 1996, Robin Wright was Sean Penn's longtime anchor. Then, after some false starts and changing of minds, the two finally divorced last August.
While Wright rhapsodized about relishing her independence and harboring no regrets when it came to her ex, Penn, looking back, says, "She is a ghost to me now."
Speaking to author-historian Douglas Brinkley for Vanity Fair's July issue, on the nation's newsstands next Tuesday, the Mystic River and Milk Best Actor Oscar winner says, "We spent all those years together … Now she's just gone."

Fresh from her split from Sean Penn, Robin Wright Penn is embracing a new life.
"New beginnings, definitely," she tells Redbook in its November issue, out Oct. 27. "For me, my career too. My kids are older now."
But, of course, ending a marriage isn't easy. After a notoriously rocky 13-year marriage to infamously hot-tempered actor/director Penn, the actress, 43, filed for divorce in August for what appears to be the final time.

When Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn attended the 2009 Academy Awards together in February, the couple – whose 13-year marriage had its share of ups and downs over the past two years – seemed to be on-again.
But six months later, the reconciliation ended with Wright filing for divorce Aug. 12. According to the legal papers in Marin County, Calif., the estranged couple "agreed to division of all property" and "[shared] custody" of son Hopper Jack, 16. They also have a daughter together, Dylan, 18.
The legal action culminates their roller-coaster relationship, which started when both Wright, 43, and Penn, 49, filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences," on separate occasions in December 2007.

Robin Wright Penn has filed for divorce from her husband Sean Penn, PEOPLE has learned.
The papers, filed in Marin County, Calif., on Aug. 12, state that "both parties have already agreed to [shared] custody" over their minor son, Hopper Jack, 16, and that "the estranged couple have already agreed to division of all property."
The reason for the split is listed as "irreconcilable differences." Wright Penn, best known for roles in The Princess Bride and Forrest Gump, is not seeking spousal support.
Lawyers for both sides weren't immediately available for comment.
Together since 1989 and married in 1996, the couple endured a roller-coaster relationship, filing papers to initiate divorce not once, but twice – only to patch things up again as recently as May.

Robin Wright Penn, whose relationship with Sean Penn has been on-again, off-again for the several years, says she has no plans to reconcile with the actor.
"I'd been stagnant," the actress, best known for roles in The Princess Bride and Forrest Gump, tells More magazine for its September issue, on sale Aug. 25. "I think I've always been waiting for things to happen. Now I'm like, 'I'm okay – I know the direction, whoever's on board can go with me."
One person who won't likely be onboard is Penn. Together since 1989 and married in 1996, the couple endured a roller-coaster relationship only to file papers of legal separation not once, but twice – only to patch things up again as recently as May.
