Sean Penn Left Wife Out of Oscar Acceptance Speech on Purpose

| Filed under: AwardzSean Penn


Sean Penn won his second Oscar on Sunday night and some people took note that he failed to 'thank' his wife, actress Robin Wright Penn, in his most recent, stirring acceptance speech.

When the media caught up with them at one of the Oscar parties, both Sean and wifey Robin explained that her 'omission' from the speech was planned.

We can all un-bunch our panties now!

Robin said they both knew there wouldn't be "enough time".

And when asked if his wife knows his feelings for her he simply replied, “She knows.”

Short and to the point.

Robin's a generous soul. In giving up some of 'her' time, Sean was able to speak more fully about the injustices the gay community still faces.

You know other wifeys would have lost their shit if they weren't mentioned!

    Congrats Sean-I hope you premeire Milk for your buddies in Iran.I think they'd really like this movie!I'm sure your other buddy Hugo dug it as well!

  2. 2

    He wouldn't have had time??? Like it would take more than a second and a half to say, "and my wife Robin" while reciting his list of thank yous? What a douchebag.

  3. 3

    He still could have said "Thank You" or "I Love You". It doesn't take up that much time…

  4. 4

    HE ROCKS! :)

  5. 5

    That's bullshit! Their marriage has been rocky for years. Just a year ago or so, they were separated and ready to divorce. Sean Penn is a douche! Him and his communist ways by saying Chavez, Castro and Hussein aren't really bad guys and even going so far as to go to their countries and talk to them. Fuck Sean Penn!

  6. 6

    I noticed that he wasn't wearing a wedding ring - so, who knows what's going on with them. I was wondering who he was talking about at the beginning of his speech when he thanked his best friend "some japanesse name" - what was that about??

  7. 7

    I smell bullshit. Maybe it's cuz they were seperated when he made the movie. Seems kinda petty.

  8. 8

    Re: RedWingsFan – Agreed!!!

  10. 10

    **** I bet Madonna is very proud of him

  11. 11

    It would have taken an extra 2 seconds………..come on.

  12. 12

    I thought Sean was dating Hugo Chaves.

  13. 13

    Seriously Lame. He may be a genious, but he sucks a being a husband. Robin always take shis shit. Remember his affairs. He is self-absorbed.

  14. 14

    Jeezzzz….Breaking news, Mario!!!

  15. 15

    Sean Penn is the best actor Holywood has ever produced. BRAVO my dearest and I also share your political views. Love you.

  16. 16

    What bullshit, it really wouldnt have taken that long to acknowledge her.

  17. 17

    You know what's fucked up? The homosexual community is all about Sean Penn because he played this role. Which, honestly, I don't think the majority of the people even know who Harvey Milk is (myself included) except for what they heard about this movie. Then he gets up there and starts his speech out as "You homo loving…" To me, if I was gay, that is like a slap in the face. Isn't using just "homo" more of a dig? Then he goes on to get all political about prop 8, whatever. He is the Sarandon/robbins of my generation. He used to be a good actor, still is for the most part, however, his actions take away from his talent.

  18. 18

    Too bad you didnt post the video of his acceptance speech jackass

  19. 19

    Yeah, ’cause "Thanks, Robin" takes 1.3 seconds to say, and they had the hook on him?Three syllables, Sean. You're a douchebag no matter how generous your wife is.

  20. 20

    I never understood why people thanked their spouses anyway. Unless your spouse was your director for the project or the screenwriter or your agent, you don't owe them jack. The only time thanking kids made sense was when Daniel Day-Lewis thanked his sons for "There Will Be Blood", but that's only because the movie was 70% about father-son relationships.

  21. 21

    I call BS! He can thank Mickey Rourke, but can't give a shout out to his wife?

  22. 22

    Yeah there's just not enough time to say "Thanks to my beautiful wife, Robin", that took all of 3.5 seconds. Not enough time…suuuuuure…..

  23. 23

    Sure, why praise your wife, the one that deals with all your ups and downs as an actor, when you can waste you time talking about fag injustice. What a joke.

  24. pomme says – reply to this


    "i thinks my wife" you're right! it's too long ! ONE sec!

  25. 25


  26. 26

    I also noticed that when he stood up to accept his award, she grabbed him and kissed him. It seemed like he pulled away real quick as if he did not want to kiss her =(

  27. 27

    If he can mention Mickey Rourke…he can mention his wife.

  28. 28

    Yeah, she and he both know they're done done dunzo, that's why "she knows".

  29. 29

    When he won, Robin grabbed his face and planted a big kiss. He did not seem liked he cared. Then when he did not mention Robyn I was shocked. It would only take 2 seconds. I had so much admiration for Sean Penn but after that I lost it. Robyn put up with Sean's bad boy ways and she deserves better. He was not even looking at her while he said his speech. Why even bother going with Robyn?

  30. 30

    Penn's wife is always avaliable to open her legs when Sean is strest out after any film, nice, so why is so important to thanks that all the time !

  31. 31

    Penn was charged with felony domestic assault, a charge for which he pleaded to a misdemeanor for beating your favorite, Madonna. Same was true of his current wife, Robin Wright Penn. Calling him a "good man" at the Oscars was highly hypocritical. And having him connected with a truly wonderful movement by a historical figure, Milk, is a travesty.

  32. 32

    Lamest excuse ever. "I thank my wife, Robin" - that took less than 2 second. He was going on and on in his speech for quite some time; he was was talking for a few minutes!
    He treats her like shit and cheated on her for years and yet she was still there. No one needs that shit.

  33. 33

    What a fucking dick!

  34. 34

    I think it was his moment! I am always wondering why Beyonce and Jay-Z never give each other props..they win stuff and never acknowledge the other, they dont even mention the spouse only the mothers and the fathers and the sisters and so on and never each other

  35. 35

    Re: tallis
    How bout someone who had to deal with a person like Heath Ledger that get so involved in his roles he can't sleep. I would imagine being around some of these guys when they are really working is not that much fun. You must be single………or just a total douche

  36. 36

    bs, they are probably separated again. and for the one that thinks she is there to spend his money, robin does plenty of films. Robin probably has him by the balls this time and is going out her way this time instead of finding out he has a girlfriend from the post. He is a scumbag who only plays characters close to himself.

  37. 37

    BULLSHIT! They are so full of crap! It would have taken 1/8 of a second to say "thank you to my beautiful wife" he thanked several people what was 1 more, and his wife at that??? Stupid lame excuse! That was Mickey Rourke's award anyhow

  38. 38

    That's bullshit. Robin Wright Penn was sitting next to Sean all night, holding his hand, so proud of him whether or not he won. They have a passionate relationship, and she's secure enough with him that she doesn't need her ego stroked while he's accepting his Oscar. They are fine, his acceptance speech was beautiful. I was SOO HAPPY when SEAN PENN WON!!!

  39. 39

    I'm glad they're back together but NGL if I were Robin, I'd be pissed!

  40. 40

    Re: tallis – Oh Please let me answer this one…it's really pretty common sense…the spouses put up with the long hours, get stuck with the kids 24-7 while they are gone, and support them during the filming….they DESERVE a fucking thank you that's WHY!

  41. 41

    what an asshole. how long would it have taken? total douchebag. this rubs out all the good will i was feeling. fuck you sean!

  42. 42

    Re: markustucker – Really! I agree!

  43. 43


  44. 44

    Disfunctional relationships always have their excuses for poor behavior. Sean Penn thanked everybody EXCEPT his wife, the one who deserved it the most. He even thanked Mickey Rourke! Whatever for, except to play cool. What an ego. He forgot and it was noted and it was mean.

  45. 45

    Not enough time? Bullshit. It would have taken three seconds.

    He's still a commie bastard.

  46. 46

    So what if he didn't thank his wife. He didn't even mention HARVEY MILK. That is unconscionable. Sean Penn can be such a twat. He is an amazing actor but has a lot of work to do on being a decent man.

  47. 47

    He s just not such a HYPOCRITE like all other male Hollywood actors…..it s RIDICULOUS always thanking your parents, good, the wife, the children a.s.o. - who CARES?'

  48. 48


  49. 49

    sean and robin are wonderful

    so happy he won

  50. 50

    You don't know dick and you're just scratching in the dirt for a story to post. There's nothing here, you just want to talk MORE about the Gay Rights issue. Why don't you start a blog site about that subject instead of ruining your site here with the constant political crap you post? Why doesn't your banner say "Political Juice, not from Concentrate" ?????????

  51. 51

    thought they were separated and divorcing anyway?

  52. 52

    I don't give a shit about his marriage. I am happy that he won the oscar because he deserved it. Milk is a movie everyone should see, even those homophobic pieces of shit who for unknown reasons come on this website..ya know the website that's run by a flaming homosexual:-) And if you don't know who Harvey Milk is, go see the damn movie morons. He is the to the gay community, what Martin Luther King was/is to the black community. I know this may shock you, but gay rights are civil rights. Harvey Milk is a hero. I don't like many things about Sean Penn, but he did an outstanding job as Harvey Milk. Great job Sean!

  53. 53

    robin's a pretty short name………..calculating commie fucker

  54. 54

    He had time to thank his "best friend"! Sorry, Perez, but if you were married and your man had time to thank his best friend, but not you, I'm sure you wouldn't be thrilled. He's a great actor, but a grade A d-bag. He also had time to wax that he's "not easy to appreciate" and to call the crowd "homo loving commies"- TWICE…all about him. He had the time.

  55. 55

    dude seriously who cares, just because he didnt thank her dosent mean he dosent love her, come on now…..and he def. deserved that oscar mickey rourke is a fuckin nutbag

  56. 56

    Milk Ha Ha what a name for a pervert Milk LOL? Maybe this is what Penn and his commie friends like to watch as they laugh at the problems in the usa??

  57. 57

    Re: devil_dawg_wife – >>> Maybe he only lets his commie buddies ride his choclolate trail

  58. 58

    I heard he's cheating with FIRECROTCH……that marraige is O-V-E-R.

  59. 59


  60. 60

    I don't believe this. Just because his speech was politically coordinated to yours doesn't mean you should give him a break with regards to forgetting his wife. Like I said, love your juice, kid, but you care one biased little asshole sometimes!

  61. 61

    hey….how long does it take to say I -ALSO-THANK-MY-WIFE…2 seconds ?

  62. 62

    We saw the Oscar telecast at the Mighty CASTRO Theater in San Francisco…. What a ROAR when they announced both of the MILK wins!!!! Such a night…….


  63. 63

    it's actors like him that turn MOST people off
    poor Robin that crap she's put up with this year
    I truly doubt the plot of the gays and lesbos was more important then her
    more like pennis head didn't think very highly of her or his children.

  64. 64

    I can't stand sean penn

  65. 65

    Sorry, I call Bullish on this one. I had already given Sean his excuse for not thanking his wife. I decided he did not mention his "wife" out of respect for those not allowed to marry. I assumed SHE was his "best friend" and that japanese guy was someone else. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, mistakenly. His dumb ass excuse makes me lose all respect for him and her for putting up with his bull. What's ironic as well is that Sean can assault the women in his life and somehow, it's okay. Chris Brown does it and he's some kind of monster. WTF, Perez?

  66. 66

    Re: tallis – Yeah, I guess that saying, "behind every good man is a great wife" is pure bullshit. Really, what is a spouse anyways? It's not like they support you, your beliefs, your actions, your dreams and not to mention tolerate bullshit. Really, why would you thank someone you want to thank someone you plan on spending the rest of your life with anyway? Yeah, that's sooo lame to thank someone. GROW UP JERK! I guess I could say this to Sean Penn as well!

  67. 67

    Re: LadaLove – Totally agreed and brilliant points!!!

  68. 68

    Maybe Sean is into men now thats why he didn't want to kiss his wife or even thank her that was so sad.

  69. lynn says – reply to this


    NOT ENOUGH TIME?? I can say 'Thanks Robin' in 0.47 seconds. She's should have him by the balls.

  70. 70

    Robin Wright is cool as heck and always has been! Ive been a fan of hers since she was Kelly Capwell in the soap opera Santa Barbara back in the early mid 80's. Love her and have followed her work for years. He is privelidged to be her husband! She is a MAJOR step up from WhoreDonna thats for sure!!!!

  71. 71

    That's my Princess Buttercup! As beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside!

  72. 72

    I don't like him.

  73. 73

    yea… would take 2secs to say and my wife robin… something is up there bc she was trying to hug him when it was announced and he pushed her away

  74. 74

    Re: Sugar Tits Jezzebelle luvz Chelsea – Me Too! Eden's little sister! Damn that was a LONG time ago!!!

  75. 75

    cold, cold. even if it was 'agreed' beforehand (and what self-respecting PARTNER, male or female, would agree to that?) it would have taken 2 seconds to say her name. she's the mother of his children. does he think that's easy? he's a cock.

  76. 76

    He's too fucking cool to be an Oscar winner. I could tell in his face. However I'm disappointed Mickey Rouke didn't win. He deserved the win this time. Come on people they made a huge mistake.
    Team Rouke!

  77. 77

    You guys are idiots. He was keeping it professional, thanking everyone who was involved with MILK, he even said it himself on Oprah. He Thanks Mickey because they've been friends for years and were thinking that maybe one of them had a chance to win and that there's no hurt feeling and that they would be proud of each other.

    He said if he thanked his wife, he felt like he needed to thank other family members as well….

    Who the hell cares. CHRIST.

  78. 78

    It takes 4 seconds to "Thank Robin," the woman standing by his side. I'm sure shes been unjusticed at his expense before. He explains in his own words he doesnt make it easy. Acknowledging, and knowing beforehand he didnt thank you doesnt make it okay…Seems weird to me.

  79. 79

    No time for the one who lives with you and gave birth to your kids and who takes care of the house while he is away on the shoot? The Hollywood crowd will blow him off in a moment (like they blew off Heston in the tribute last night) but his wife will be with him when it counts- he should have shouted out an I love you to her and the kids.

  80. epic says – reply to this


    perez sais: i demand, demand, demand.
    you want rights? okay, so explain whatfor you need them so the world can see that you have a point. but guess you don't even know what rights you want, so you demand, demand, demand!

  81. 81

    He was too busy thinking about the hot affair he's having with LINDSAY LOHAN. Why aren't you reporting this?

    He's a great actor, but moreso he's a violent, egotistical, philandering douche. Sad.

  82. lbear says – reply to this


    Even my husband noticed the omission! What a creep Sean Penn is.

  83. 83

    Re: Moonmoth – What-evs…Talk about awkward. First of all, they WERE NOT wearing wedding rings. 2nd - did you see that forced kiss. Robin actually had to grab his face. 3rd - my friend's bro was at a San Francisco hotel in January, and saw Mr Penn in the lobby with a pretty blonde - but not the Princess Bride, if you get my point. That guy is a jerk. I hope she get's alot of money in the divorce.

  84. 84

    WHATEVER…how long does it take to say thankyou to my wife… bullcocky!!!although he is a GREAT actor hes full of sh%$…some other actor who knew him said hes one of the biggest homophobs hes ever met which i could sooo see…he knew the movie would get him an oscar and thats the gist of

  85. 85

    Who's he kidding? He dodged his wife's quick celebratory kiss when he stood up to accept the Oscar—there was no eye contact and his body language did not reciprocate the sweet gesture.

  86. 86

    I was betting on it DURING the speech. I saw it coming a mile away…did anyone else notice the body language all night?? From IMMENSE experience I can tell you this…their days are numbered. He is SOOO out of that marriage that he couldn't even pretend last night. She is trying so hard to keep it together that she doesn't realize she's 'playing house' at this point. GOOD LUCK and pony up a really great lawyer soon Robin.

  87. 87

    Lol what a lame excuse… so he was able to come up with a brilliant speech but he gives that lame of excuse??? Lol… poor Robin, it's not enough to be the wife of Sean Penn but she is also a freaking idiot! She was all teary and moved and he totally ignored her!!!

  88. 88

    So full of shit!!!..He forgot to mention her and she tried to cover up for him. She is acting like all abuse women , making excuses for her offender.
    And Perez please, don't give him credit for his speech about gays rights, that speech was totally pathetic. For a liberal, Sean Penn is really a closed mind individual who doesn't tolerate different opinions. If you don;'t agree with him, you are mean and should DIE! Sean call Obama, a guy with "personality" even thought Obama is against gay marriage…..but trash conservatives for the same opinion.

  89. MC30 says – reply to this


    Sean is a freaking commie.
    I can not believe you are posting about him.
    He is an asshole who loves castro and Hugo.
    How sad I am that he won! He stole the oscar from Micky.
    I hate Sean Penn.

  90. sofi says – reply to this


    I totally agree jlbakada!

    When he starts with "My best friend" then says some ones name other then his wife, I just about fell outta my chair. You know whats the best part of Sean Penn…its his wife!!! She is the one who sees it all and puts up with it all these years.

    "Planned" "she knows" uh uh I want my thanks!!!

  91. 91

    He should have mentioned her. She should have been near the top of his list and insisted on it, especially with them almost divorcing not long ago.

  92. 92

    Lies. Or stupidity. It takes 2 secs to say thanks "to robin."

    a. he is a fucking retard
    b. He omitted her out of spite
    c. He did not want to dampen the moment gays were feeling by mentioning that he was straight. sigh.

    Its a sad, sad world for any of those.

  93. 93

    Robin is and always will be a class act.

  94. 94

    Please. She gets to sit on the Oscar any time she likes. Who needs to be mentioned when they get a new dildo in the house?

  95. 95

    Re: jlbakada
    My thought exactly!

  96. 96

    Bullshiz. How long does it take to say the name 'Robin'?

  97. 97

    I don't see why anyone cares since she doesn't. Robin and Sean was on Access Hollywood after he won hugging and kissing and looking very much in love so apparently she doesn't care. It shouldn't take a public thank you to know someone cares for you. He didn't thank his mother or kids so he doesn't appreciate them either? Please people stop making a big deal out of nothing.

  98. 98

    BULLSHIT!!! No one is buying that dumb ass lie except for Perez's dumb ass!

  99. AMO says – reply to this


    He's so yay… I like him a lot!

  100. 100

    Yeah that's right Perez! You just know everything about anything right?? You are so sure that anyone else would have "lost their shit" over this. Get a life you piece of mierda!! Find something juicy or nice, for a change, to talk about. Stop trying to stir things up CULERO!!
