Movie star Sean Penn has no regrets about his brief marriage to Madonna and still thinks the pop superstar is a wonderful person.

Now happily married to actress Robin Wright PENN, the MYSTIC RIVER star admits he had a volatile relationship with the MATERIAL GIRL - but he blames himself for its failure.

He says, "It was a miserable marriage, but I like her a lot. It got me steps further and clearer into knowing what I wanted. I still had a lot of demon doors to go through.

"I describe that marriage as loud... I don't recall having a single conversation in four years of marriage. I've talked to her a couple of times since, and there's a whole person there. I just didn't know it."
