Leila is the daughter of Vincent D’Onofrio, who is just one year older than her new husband.
The happy couple got a congratulations message Saturday from Josh Brolin, who co-starred with Sean in Milk and Gangster Squad and will feature with him in the upcoming Flag Day.
‘Happy wedding lovebirds. Our salutations to a beautiful marriage. Sean and Leila,’ Josh posted to his Insta Stories.
Sean, who was previously married to Madonna and Robin Wright, recently admitted he can be ‘difficult’ on a personal level.
I do! The Milk actor, 59, has tied the knot with his 28-year-old bride in a secret ceremony, Irena Medavoy – the wife of Black Swan producer Mike – has revealed
He said on The Howard Stern Show in June: ‘Am I difficult? Yeah I think so. I will say I’m a person who feels and expresses energetically, I’ve misled people into thinking it’s all about me.’
Sean added: ‘I think the interview you’re talking about would be a lady named Leila George, she knows me better than I do on this level, that doesn’t mean I agree with her perceptions but I certainly find them fascinating.’
In that same conversation he referred to Leila as ‘the gal in my life.’
The longtime couple have been known to be an item since the autumn of 2016, when he was 56 years old and she was only 24.

Sean has two children by Robin – daughter Dylan, who is a year older than Leila, and son Hopper, who is two years younger than his new stepmother.
Between the breakup of his latest marriage and his relationship with Leila, Sean was engaged to Charlize Theron.
On The Howard Stern Show last month he shared that he is ‘aware’ he can be ‘difficult to like from afar’.
He said of his reputation: ‘There’ve been several times I’ve worked with directors who I felt might have found a different job description, and perhaps weren’t the storytellers that their initial meetings with each of us actors might have indicated.’

Sean shared: ‘Actors are kind of canaries in the coal mine emotionally, and you have to go to whatever place is necessary inside yourself.
He insisted: ”If you don’t have somebody there who at least respects that – most of what I was referring to is that the arrogance goes further than charm.’
Sean said: ‘I am aware that I can be a difficult person to like from afar, often. I sometimes think I have a great love affair but not too good with humans.’
