Chris Penn, R.I.P.
Sean Penn’s publicist, Mara Buxbaum, said the Penn family “would appreciate the media’s respect of their privacy during this difficult time”...... uh, we all know how well Sean and photographers get along, right?
Remember when Sean Penn pounded on Steve Dallas (in the 1980s comic strip "Bloom County") with his forehead? Penn beat the crap out of Steve Dallas for photographing him vomiting in an alley. After he recovered from back surgery, Dallas ran down the options of whom to sue:
- Penn was out, because juries love celebrities, plus he may go nuts and beat him up again…
- Opus was out, because even though he got Dallas into the mess, you never, ever sue poor people.
- He also debated suing Madonna but thought the better of it because, “she too may return to beat up the plaintiff.”
- In the end, he decided on the Nikolta Camera Company, which was “swimming in dough.”
