Madonna to Sean Penn: "I Still Love You"

by at .  Updated at .

Could a reconciliation be on the horizon for Madonna and Sean Penn???

According to People, the material girl and the Oscar-winning actor arrived together holding hands at a gala benefiting one of Penn's favorite charities, the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.

In a heartfelt speech praising Penn's humanitarian efforts, Madonna offered this heartfelt confession:

"I want to say that, Sean, I love you. From the moment that I laid eyes on you. And I still love you, just the same." 

This is amazeballs. As we know, the two were married back in 1985, but ended their rocky relationship after just four years.

At the time, reports surfaced that Penn had abused the singer, but Madge went on the record to deny any such incidents just last December.

They're in their 50s now, and perhaps they've both calmed down a bit since their wild child antics of their 20s. We kinda hope so, because this is one relationship we could potentially get behind.

In September, Penn was spotted in the audience at Madge's Rebel Heart concert in New York, and about a month prior to that, she posted a throwback pic on Instagram of Penn planting a kiss on her cheek.

However, the two are both plagued with separate personal issues at the moment.

Penn has been getting a lot of attention surrounding a controversial interview he conducted with Mexican drug lord El Chapo, and Madonna is ensnared in a custody battle for her son, Rocco.

Perhaps these two can offer each other a little love and support during these difficult times.

Personal dramas aside, their fondness for one another is abundantly clear. But Madonna has just one request of her ex- (and maybe future, wink-wink!) husband:

"I just wish you would stop smoking so many cigarettes."

Leave her alone. She’s gonna be 16 soon and then 17 and then 18, and then she might show her knees and then what's gonna happen?

My husband and I are not planning on getting a divorce. I know Alex Rodriguez through Guy Oseary, who manages both of us. I brought my kids to a Yankee game. I am not romantically involved in any way with Alex Rodriguez. I have nothing to do with the state of his marriage or what spiritual path he may choose to study.
