Surprise! Sean Penn Has A Hot Take On #MeToo…

Not A #MeToo Fan

Sean Penn Says Movement Is 'Too Black And White'

Sean Penn may not like cameras, but one thing he never shies away from is controversy.

The Oscar winner was doing an interview with Today to promote his new show The First and clearly caught his costar Natasha McElhone off guard with his hot take on #MeToo.

After McElhone said her character, the boss overseeing the first mission to mars, was informed by the #MeToo movement, Penn took umbrage immediately.

He said:

“I’d like to think that none of it was influenced by what they call the movement of #MeToo. I think it’s influenced by the things that are developing in terms of the empowerment of women who’ve been acknowledging each other and being acknowledged by men. This is a movement that was largely shouldered by a kind of receptacle of the salacious.

Um, what?

Natalie Morales thought the same thing because she asked him to explain that statement, to which he replied:

“Well, we don’t know what’s a fact in many of the cases. Salacious is as soon as you call something a movement that is really a series of many individual accusers, victims, accusations, some of which are unfounded.”

Isn’t every movement a series of individuals?

Is it just us, or is this yet another man saying a woman’s word is not enough, and that the power to make accusations is being abused?

He continued:

“The spirit of much of what has been the #MeToo movement is to divide men and women.”

Morales interjected:

“Women would say it’s uniting women.”

Penn then disagreed with the woman about how women feel, saying:

“I’m gonna say that women that I talk to, not in front of a camera, that I listen to, of all walks of life, that there’s a common sense that is not represented at all in the discussion when it comes to the media discussion of it, the discussion where if Sean Penn says this, so and so’s going to attack him for saying this, because of that.

I don’t want it to be a trend, and I’m very suspicious of a movement that gets glommed on to in great stridency and rage and without nuance. And even when people try to discuss it in a nuanced way, the nuance itself is attacked.”

OK, we think we might have agreed with something in there, as there definitely is an issue with nuance in the media’s discussion — though that might be true of literally every subject in the age of social media.

But that is hardly a reason to discount a movement. And the existence of a trend is what is giving women the courage to come forward, women who have kept silent for years in many cases about what has been done to them.

Can’t he see that?

He concludes:

“I think it’s too black and white. In most things that are very important, it’s really good to just slow down.”

Do YOU think this movement is going to slow down??

Sean Penn Responds To Critics With His Own Version Of ‘I’m Rich, Bitch’ — Watch!

Sean Penn is getting a lot of flack for his debut novel, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.

Oh, and then there are the critics. Lord, the critics have not been nice.

So when Conan O’Brien asked him about those who took umbrage with his protagonist murdering the elderly or other aspects of the novel, Sean addressed all the haters, saying:

“I’m 57, my pool’s heated, you can say anything you like.”

Sean Penn may have fallen out of love with acting, but he may not want to give up on his day job just yet.

His debut novel, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, is getting lambasted by critics for its casual misogyny and meandering, get-off-my-lawn grumpiness, yes.

But mostly they can’t get past the awful writing!

Reviewers couldn’t help but include crude passages illuminating literary peccadillos like a preponderance of polysyllabic words and a litany of alliteration. (See how annoying that gets? Imagine it for 160 pages.)

Oh, and it ends with a six page poem that trashes the #MeToo movement. Eesh.

The Game Of Thrones actor recently spoke to Esquire about the orange villain, expressing his view that the man is basically nothing but a big old phony!

He said:

“I believe in experts. Mr. Donald Trump├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥I wouldn’t call him President, I’ll call him Mister. I think this man at the head of your country is a con artist.”

It was a sentiment echoed by GoT author George R.R. Martin, who said:

“I think Joffrey is now the king in America. And he’s grown up just as petulant and irrational as he was when he was thirteen in the books.”

Truly apt comparison!

But it’s not just Republicans who rub the 30-year-old the wrong way. He was also not a fan of Sean Penn and the liberal actor’s involvement in the Falklands, when he attacked British ownership of the islands. Kit said: (more…)
