LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn and his wife, Robin Wright Penn, are divorcing after 11 years of marriage, People magazine reported on Friday.

Penn's publicist, Mara Buxbaum, confirmed the divorce to the magazine but gave no details.

Penn, 47, who won an Academy Award for his role in the 2003 movie "Mystic River," and Wright, 41, married in 1996 and have two teenage children.

Penn's first marriage -- to pop star Madonna -- ended in 1989 after four years.

Wright is best known for her starring role in the romance "Message in a Bottle." She also appeared in the adventure movie "Beowulf" which opened in the United States in November.
