It's been over twenty years since Madonna and Sean Penn divorced -- and these days, the once-warring couple are friendly enough to break bread together.

Madonna, 51, and Penn, 49, shared a three-hour, one-on-one dinner at four-star Alain Ducasse restaurant in Manhattan on Thursday; TMZ has video footage documenting their exits from the venue.

In what was the first marriage for them both, the pop superstar and acclaimed actor were married, not-so-peacefully, from 1985 to 1989. (The media dubbed them the "Poison Penns" at the time for their constant fighting; Penn famously assaulted a photographer angling for a picture of Madonna.)

Remember these ugly Hollywood divorces?

Madonna went on to marry Guy Ritchie in 2000; she gave birth to his son, Rocco, that year, and they later adopted David Banda in Malawi. (Madonna has a daughter from a previous relationship, and has since adopted a daughter, Mercy James, in Malawi.) The entertainer has been dating Brazilian model Jesus Luz, 23, since early 2009.

Look back on the biggest breakups of 2009

Penn married Robin Wright Penn in 1996, and they have two children; after a few splits and reconciliations the couple confirmed their impending divorce in 2009.
