Actor Sean Penn has come so far since playing weed-infused Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. He's served time for and pled guilty to assaulting a stranger and his wife respectively, won a couple Oscars (Milk and Mystic River) without anyone ever mentioning those assaults, and gotten engaged to Charlize Theron. Along the way, he bought this Ranch-style Malibu pad not too far away from Gywneth Paltrow's underwhelming John Lautner house, which he now is selling, the LA Times reports.
The property holds a three-bedroom main residence that gives off a strong tract house vibe, despite being designed by California Ranch king Cliff May; sharing the lot are a detached guesthouse and maid's quarters, for a total of five bedrooms and four and a quarter bathrooms in all. The grounds include "terraced gardens" and a swimming pool spread across a very private 1.4-acre lot, plus "gated and deeded beach access." Penn purchased the house in 2009 for $3.8 million from Rocky producer Robert Chartoff. He's now listed it for $6.55 million.
