Sean Penn Slams Sony For Pulling the Plug on 'The Interview'

Sean Penn is not happy about Sony’s decision to stop the release of The Interview after threats from Sony hackers.

“This week, the distributors who wouldn’t show The Interview and Sony have sent ISIS a commanding invitation. I believe ISIS will accept the invitation. Pandora’s box is officially open,” the 54-year-old actor said in a statement.

Sean added, “The damage we do to ourselves typically outweighs the harm caused by outside threats or actions. Then by caving to the outside threat, we make our nightmares real. The decision to pull The Interview is historic. It’s a case of putting short term interests ahead of the long term. If we don’t get the world on board to see that this is a game changer, if this hacking doesn’t frighten the Chinese and the Russians, we’re in for a very different world, a very different country, community, and a very different culture.”

Brad Pitt Dismissed From Jury Duty For Simply Being Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt has been excused from jury duty in Los Angeles.

“You just can’t stick Brad Pitt in a jury box and expect 11 jurors to ignore him,” L.A. attorney William Lively shared to MailOnline about the 51-year-old actor. “It’s only natural that those jurors would be watching to see how Brad reacts to what’s being said and that they could be influenced by his opinions once the jury goes behind closed doors to render a verdict.”

William added, “It’s one of those things where [it's like], ‘We’re not going to use you because it’s going to end up being about you.’”

Another source shared, “Brad was hoping he might get picked to serve on a short case. But the problem was, he would actually be required to serve for as long as it took for the case to be decided.”
