Yesterday I was going to write about Sean Penn leaving Robin Wright Penn out of his acceptance speech but I was so pissed that I thought I should wait a day before I wrote anything. I thought I was feeling more calm about it today but then when I read his quotes again it just all came flooding back.
Sean Penn is the world's biggest jackass. Yes, he can act. This has nothing to do with his acting or his performance in the film which was remarkable and Oscar worthy. What it has to do with is his arrogance and what I consider to be horrible treatment and disrespect of his wife.
You forget to mention your next door neighbor, not your wife. This is a woman who took you back AFTER she discovered you having a threesome with two Russian hookers in the same hotel where your family was vacationing. This is the same woman who doesn't care how much money you spend at strip clubs or why Eve is calling you in the middle of the night when she needs help. These are only some of the stories that have been made public. What about the ones no one else knows about? This is the person you choose to forget when you are standing before the audience of the world? When you get a chance to speak in front of 1 billion people you choose to not mention your wife. When you get the chance to do some groveling and to give some public love to the woman who stood by you, you choose not to. That is so completely beyond f**ked up, you have no idea.
When Access Hollywood caught up with Sean and Robin they asked him why he had left her out, Sean's reply was, “she knows.” WTF does that mean? That she knows how much you love her? I don't think so pal.
Robin stuck up for Sean by saying they both knew there wouldn't be enough time for him to say what he wanted to say and to thank Robin as well. F**k that. You make the time. You have now won two Academy Awards. You say what you want to say. What was more important your quip about commies and gays or telling your wife you love her?
You are an ass, Sean Penn. I wouldn't be surprised if you saw Madonna at the Vanity Fair party, took her off in a corner, had sex with her, and made Robin watch and kept saying “she knows I love her.”
