"Yes, I'd get married again," he said. "You say I've been married twice before but I've been married under circumstances where I was less informed than I am today, so I wouldn't even consider it a third marriage. I'd consider it a first marriage on its own terms if I got married again."

Penn's previous marriages were to Madonna from 1985-1989 and Robin Wright from 1996-2010.
