Sean Penn bugs the hell out of me.



The more I think about it, the most I realize that there probably isn't another critically acclaimed "dramatic" actor working today that bugs the hell out of me as much as this fella.

It's everything really. His acting. His attitude. His choice of roles. His interviews. His public appearances and political activist bullshit.

And most of all his face. It just perfectly fits everything I hate about him.



"But I'm never again going to do a movie as an actor where I'm enjoying myself. It's not fun, and it doesn't have to be." - Sean Penn

You say so? Douche.

Maybe it's this attitude that fuels his annoying-as-an-ass-full-of-mosquitos over acted "serious" roles.

"I think it's much more important to direct movies but if it's going to take five years between each one then I'll have to make up for that..."

...by making slow, boring, pretentious wank-fest films.

That last bit was me, by the way.



"If there's anything disgusting in the movie business, it is the whoredom of my peers. "

From the same man who said:

"I love acting, truly my favorite people are actors. "

Douche.


MOOOOOVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEZZZZZ!!!!

"There are a few directors around who I have some excitement about spending my $7 at the theatre watching their movies."

My favorite part of this man's career is just listening to him speak and reading interviews. I've never seen a more arrogant A-list actor who tries to put himself is such a role of martyrdom.



"So, if you're an artist who is in it just for the money (or the little gold statuettes... ), I would be against you."

But seriously. I can't stand watching this man in the movies. I was watching Calito's Way last night, and I couldn't get past my extreme desire for his character to get shot in the fucking mouth.

Same goes for Mystic River.

And The Game.

And 21 Grams.

And The Interpreter.

And All The Kings Men.

And...well, you get the idea.

Interesting, his least annoying performance was in Fast Times.

That said, I haven't seen all of his films. He has a lot of them. But you know what? I really don't want to. I'm not a masochist.







"Yeah, I had actually tried to stop acting before I made Dead Man Walking."

Damn. So close.


Ughh.

I wish.

He usually doesn't bug me all that much, but at the end of Spike Lee's "When the Levees Broke," all the people who had been interviewed stated their names.

There was something about the smug, self-satisfied way he said "Sean Penn. Actor." that made me want to punch him.

His acting is a lot like Pacino's...without the skill.

I just think he takes himself way too seriously. When Chris Rock hosted the Oscars all those years ago (seems like it anyway) and made fun of Jude Law being in nearly every movie out (which felt true for a while), Sean Penn's response was so smug and arrogant. "Jude Law is one of our most gifted actors." Whatever, dude, it was a joke. And who's running to defend Jude Law's talent or choice in roles? Honestly.

You are correct, I really think part of the problem is he has no sense of humor, I blame getting married to Madonna
