Sean Penn is moving to keep his divorce battle secret — deciding to try and hash out a settlement with his estranged wife behind closed doors instead of out in the public.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, the 61-year-old actor and 29-year-old Leila George have informed the court they hired private judge Scott Gordon to help them negotiate a deal.
