Sean Penn Does Something Awesome!

sean penn does something awesome

You've come a loooong way, Spicoli! We are impressed! Ha!

During a recent dinner party at his house, Sean Penn sat down with one of his friend's dates, who happened to be an Iraq war veteran.

The vet opened up to Sean about his massive medical bills, and the actor/activist listened intently and took him very seriously.

Here's what a source had to say about it:

"Sean really took an interest in this guy and was hanging on his every word. He became the guest of honor, really."

The vet told Sean that he currently owes approximately $15,000 in medical expenses from treatments for the following injuries that he sustained during the war:

"[A] broken tailbone, two broken ankles, and problems with his eyesight."

After hearing all of this, Sean left the room, and returned with a $15K check!!!

More from a source on the vet's reaction:

"The guy was in total shock! He didn’t know what to say and he started to tear up. He felt awkward accepting it and tried to give it back to Sean, but Sean refused. He actually went out of his way to make sure the guy felt comfortable accepting it. It was really sweet!"

Thank you for being so selfless, Sean! You're an inspiration to us all!

    It's nice he did this. I can hardly believe it, after all the schmoozing he has done with third world dictators, like Chavez, his best buddy.



  2. 2

    You must have this wrong Perez. IF he were a veteran and was injure during duty he would have NO medical bills.

    Give me a break
    First off if Sean was such a stand up guy and wanted to help the vet out, we would not be reading this story, it would have been done quietly, and not another Sean Penn give me the spotlight moment
    (Remember Sean in the boat in New Orleans)
    Next $15,000 for medical bill seems really low, doesn't the vet have Obama Care ?

    Re: MR Pete – Zip it…obviously the friends talked, not Penn. Penn has a decent heart and a honed sense of injustice. Sincere high five to him.
