“I mean, listen, it’s cheesy,” Penn said to a newspaper (via Us Weekly). “But I want to do whatever I can. Let’s be honest: I’m on…Gossip Girl…It’s absurd that celebrity power is what it is, but, like, use any tool you have, you know?”

Zoe Kravitz was also in attendance at the protest.

    Pathetic!

  • Orlybbq

    So since he is in the upcoming movie “Margin Call” he thinks he knows anything about Wall Street…? What an annoying person.

  • sillyme

    Yes, he’s standing there along with the professional anarchists, 9/11 truthers, America haters, union thugs, etc. Good luck with that, Penn. Are you going to be spitting and throwing rocks at policemen, too?

  • WTF?

    @sillyme: WTF? Please…Im sure there are folks like that there but there are folks like that in the Republican, Democrat, Progressive, Tea Party, and God only knows where else.

  • mia

    well i find it good that he does this

  • stream

    if actors are there it’s a setup. The puppy dogs only show up in designated spots.

  • @_@

    Hows care??

  • SnOOKIE

    it’s funny to see rich people trying to be a part of the normal people because they can’t accept who they are and that they will never fit in.

  • JustSaying

    Penn’s dad is an activist and environmentalist, this is hardly the only protest he’s attended since he often accompanies his father to rallies.

  • JustSaying

    (cont)…. so it’s possible Penn *gasp* sincerely cares because he was raised up that way to care about these issues.

  • Buzzy

    It’s funny that the Faux News lovin’ GOP Internet attack squads feel the need to come on Just Jared to spread their hate. Just funny. One can only hope a tornado blows away their trailers soon.

    I’m sure he was just there to share his wealth with everyone! Am I the only one that sees “greed” in Hollywood and the Sports World as well???? Wake up, people!

  • Pandorazparadox

    Atleast he is standing up for what he believes in. His friend organized the rally, and another of his friends got arrested, so I do think his support is genuine. Easy to mock celebrities hiding behind laptops at home.
    Oh, and all the people who hate Penn because of Dan, he is a real person, not the character he plays. It seems absurd that people have to point it out, but it is as it is.

  • Kat

    As someone who has supported OccupyWallSt.org from the start, I’m so happy to see him participate. I’m glad he gives a damn and I wish more did. While a lot of actors may be getting paid more than most, a lot aren’t… and their families sure as hell aren’t. So this affects them, too. Before you criticize with more hate mongering, why don’t you check out what this is all about before you spout off at the mouth, eh?

    Why is he dressed like Oliver Twist?
