Oh, to be like Sean Penn, to do what every your heart becomes set on - and get away with it.

I wonder if he will ever get to play the President of the United States (for instance I notice Kevin Spacey is coming up on his second gig at it).

SP is an arrogant a whole. El Chapo is pee d off that SP and Costillogot him arrested. Just watch, they are going to find sp with no head floating in San Pablo bay and costillo working with donkeys in a tj brothel

He is widely viewed as one of the finest actors and directors of the day.

Sean Penn showed great promise in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

At least he lived where he helped, I'd give him that, instead of fly-by-night here-today gone-tomorrow

Credit is where credit is due, he does a lot for charity, not everyone is perfect.

I liked him as the gangster in Gangster Squad btw.

He talks a good game about doing things for charity, but he accomplishes nothing at all. It is all publicity to him. He beats up women to make himself feel more like a man. And he is a lousy actor, same rubbish from him all the time. I hope he goes to jail for this, the big jerk.

Sean Penn: a Hollywood rebel with many causes

A Rebel? How can Penn be a rebel when just about everyone in Hollywood agrees with him?

A week after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Penn moved there. Living in a tiny tent, a Glock gun at his side for security

I do not see any reason why a Hollywood liberal would need a gun! Isn't it the governments job to protect him from harm? I guess he thinks the right to self defense only applies to movie stars.

Penn is a fine actor. His politics are ok, but I don't particularly like the manner of his use of celebrity to further the causes he likes. I prefer the way Clooney and Dipcaprio and Damon come off. Penn seems pretty full of himself, like Cruz. Depp is a strange due. Clooney and Decaprio and Damon seem like nice guys. Plus, Damon is a big supporter of teachers, which is really good.

I know. I know. They are good actors. But that is the public image they have created.
