Why would Charlize Theron want Sean Penn to stop working out??
No, not these guns! We're talking about actual firearms!
Sean put his collection of over 60 weapons up for auction at his 3rd Annual Help Haiti Home Gala on Saturday night, and the inspiration was his rumored new love interest!
The Mystic River star didn't mention her by name, but he did say "a strong woman who happens to be from South Africa" convinced him to give up the gun! He said:
"Being provoked by this aforementioned strong woman and considering how liberating of bulls**t and ugliness it would be not only get rid of the guns I have in the continental United States but also to destroy them, Jeff Koons and I had a chat the other day. The highest bidder gets every single one of my guns put in the hands of this iconic artist and sculptor… Koons will decommission [and] render inactive all of my cowardly killing machines."
The gun collection-turned-art piece did a lot of good, too, bringing in $1.4 million for charity! Who dropped that kind of silver for Sean's old iron?
None other than Anderson Cooper! The CNN host is going to have one heckuva conversation piece!
We're not surprised Charlize was able to be so convincing on the subject. Her own mother shot and killed her father when she was just 17!
Besides, if gurl showed up to your party dressed like this, wouldn't you give in to her demands?
