Sean Penn's Message For Critics Of His Book: 'You Can Say Anything You Like'

Sean Penn isn’t worried or bothered by criticism of his new book, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff: A Novel.”

The 57-year-old actor released his first fictional book last week and has been receiving some not-so-favorable reviews over a poem in the book about the #MeToo movement and a passage slamming the Trump Administration.

“There is an issue related to the ozone and there’s a lack of engagement with social media to a degree, and therefore, global consumerism,” Sean joked when asked about the criticism on Conan. “So, in culling certain demographics, we make a better world.”

“What I would say is: ‘I’m 57, my pool’s heated—you can say anything you like,” Sean continued – Watch the interview below!
