    fugly communist and the beauty

  • Duke

    This will be interesting.

  • Pedro

    I wonder if Sean Penn is financing that movie with the money he received from the communist Vanezuelan dictator

  • Mr. Cheater

    Wasn’t he cheating on her with a 20 yr old actress? She must be desperate.

  • pathetic pur

    Charlize Theron only dates him because her own fame as a good actress hasn´t been that good in the last years. She once said she wants to be like him. She doesn´t love him, but dating him brought her at least a job so far. I find this pathetic and that´s one reason I´m not interested in that project. However she will be totaly happy seeing her name next to his. I would understand if a young actress would do that but her??

  • Ugonna Wosu

    @pathetic pur: she had 2 successful movies in 2012, and spent all of last year filming a bunch of movies, some of which will be released this year. Don’t know what “last years” her “own fame” hasn’t been good to you.

  • ForMe

    @pathetic pur: Prometheus and Snow White & Huntsman were blockbusters. Also she’s in a film called ‘Dark Places’ this year and the buzz is that it’s good.

  • Sarah

    @ForMe: She was terrible in both Prometheus and Snow White & The Huntsman!, neither of these films were sucessful because of her!

  • Ellen

    That explains why she is spreading her legs to him! she was making casting couch to get a job just like she did with Seth MacFarlane! LOL
    Well, Adele InexpressiveAndFrenchKristenStewartpoulos is doing the same thing with her boss/”boyfriend” Sean Penn, that’s why she got a role in this film as well!
    This what I call decadence! a former Oscar winner who needs casting couch with ugly and much older men to get roles (not to mention that he is a racist and a well-known women beater!)… that also explains why she kisses him with so much disgust in their photo ops! LOL

  • Lou

    While you haters keep hating Charlize remains a great beauty, humanitarian, and a great talent with great roles coming up!

  • Lou

    @Ellen: Keep hating on beautiful, talented women. Adele has a boyfriend and you’re immature if you think anyone seen talking to someone is screwing them.

    Charlize and Sean are dating. Get over it. Directors direct their girlfriends and wives all the time. That doesn’t make every leading lady a casting couch hoe. Grow up.

  • Ben

    @pathetic pur: Who are you to say she loves him or not? Are you her? No. Her fame has been better than ever before she even began seeing Sean Penn. Ever since coming back from that break to give one of her best performances ever in Young Adult. She’s got comedies, blockbusters, and a lead role in Dark Places coming. All before Penn. Who are you to judge her over something you couldn’t possibly know? Beauty and talent for days. What have you got?

  • ForMe

    @Sarah: The previous poster stated “She doesn’t love him, but dating him brought her at least a job so far.” So my point wasn’t her performance in those films. My point was that she’s been in films that have done very well and doesn’t need Sean Penn or anyone else to advance her career.

  • GAStinks


    Kristen Stewart wishes she could act cuz Adele Exarchopoulos runs circles around Stewart and Adele has won Awards that Stewart can only dream of and Pedro? Since you’ve got a Latin sounding name at least make an effort to write VEnezuela right racist illiterate idiot

  • Crazy bitch

    @Ellen: You’re a nut.

  • niagirl

    Why doesn’t he direct his daughter in something so she doesn’t have to pimp herself out in z list mag,d list horror flick, and b list clothing line. Come on daddy you can do better. Next up a porno flick.

  • Casting Couch Queen

    Charlize must be really desperate to be dating that horrible joke of a man. Sean Penn should give all the money he got for supporting that genocide Hugo Chavez back to the Venezuelan people.

  • Mary

    i dont understand who you people are but why are you so angry at someone you dont know? i feel sorry for you really. charlize is beautiful and this project sounds amazing

  • Selena

    @Mary: I know well who Sean Penn is. He is a communist that supports 3rd world dictators. He supported an evil man that destroyed an entire country. Plus he is a wife beater.

  • 20

    @Selena: She’s talking about Charlize. People are saying some really awful things about her. If you don’t like Sean Penn or if he’s a communist,then don’t see the phucking movie.

  • @17

    @niagirl: I thought she was already benefiting from nepotism? Now he’s supposed to put her in a movie? Dumb ass

  • @18

    @Casting Couch Queen: What money did Sean Penn get from Hugo Chavez? What right wing website did you read that on.

  • The story behind

    Once upon a time there was this very much in love couple with a movie project very close to their hearts, since the script it was written by her best frined with her in mind as the lead and him would produce and play a little part. They fought for years to get financial support for this project but nothing happened. Then years later they divorced. Since he has the rights of the project and never got over that split he thought that I would be a great vindictive move to bringing back to life that beloved project but this time putting his new flame as the lead. Now, I wonder if Charlize is only stupid and she’s being played by Penn as a vengeance tool, or she’s really a classless b!tch trying to fill the shoes of her new boyfriend’s ex, playing a part that was written for Robin Wright.

  • Carlota

    @The story behind: and that’s why Penn sold his soul to the commie devil aka Hugo Chavez. To get money for his project just like Oliver Stone and Danny Glover did. They contributed to the destruction of a country and its people for a bunch of $$$, but sooner or later Karma will catch up with them.

  • Carlota

    @20: I know I won’t, and I’ll make sure to let people know that Sean Penn is an accomplice to the genocide of the people of Venezuela.

  • So What

    @Carlota: What a dumb ass you are. Sean Penn never got financing from for a film from Hugo Chavez.

  • So What

    @The story behind: Ryan Gosling was also attached to this project is Sean Penn in love with him too.

  • Carlota

    @So What: Of course he did receive money! You are just a bully that only knows how to insult. Do you support genocides too?

  • So What

    @Carlota: I know Danny Glover got money from Chavez. That’s a fact. What proof do have that Sean Penn received any money from Chavez for a movie? Or Oliver Stone? You’re repeating something,clearly, with no proof.

  • Emily

    @GAStinks: Adele is really the french equivalent of Kristen Stewart! neither of them can act! Adele thinks acting means that she have to look retarded and don’t close her mouth through the whole movie in every movie she makes! and since when awards means sh*t? even c.rappy actresses like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lawrence can win awards, it doesn’t prove anything!
    Adele and Charlize are proving how they are “talented” spreading their legs to this creppy old man to get roles! LOL

  • The story behind

    @So What: Ryan Gosling would have played the Bardem role. I’m not saying that penn is still in love with Wright. I’m saying that this project was a very close the their heart, not a studio project, a family project. She wanted so bad to make this film happen that already was taking advice from Prendergast. It’s clear, for whomever knows the story that he’s taking this project back to life just to piss her off.

  • The story behind

    This demonstrates what a cheap classless miserable human being Penn is. And that he stills hate his ex-wife so much that he tries to hurt her in every way. (remember all the crap that he said about her in interviews)

  • The story behind

    @So What: He’s getting paid by Maduro for “teaching acting classes”. I can’t wait for someone to unmask this pathetic world leader wannabe.

  • The story behind

    @So What: Is safe to say that all of them are getting paid by Maduro.

  • bboy

    Robin wright is a twit and a boring actress. she’s unpleasant and mean. who cares about her

  • MimiB

    ” the film is about a doctor (Theron) who doing humanitarian relief work in Africa amidst violent political conflicts in the country. ”

    Ho hum… been there, done that, saw countless films with that theme and got about a dozen of the T shirts.

  • Ugonna Wosu

    some of you should be embarrassed, but are too stupid to be. All of the baseless speculation and accusations galore in this thread.

  • Oscar

    fact It movie They previously worked together on Into the Wild, which garnered two Oscar noms. Pohlad also produced Terence Malick’s Oscar-nominated Tree Of Life, which Penn narrated and starred, as well as Fair Game. Of course Pohlad was one of the producers of this year’s Best Picture winner 12 Years A Slave. Penn, Theron, Bardem and Pohlad are all Oscar winners.
