During the chat, Howard Stern brought up Sean‘s speech while accepting the Academy Award for Milk, in which he referred to being “difficult.”

“There’ve been several times I’ve worked with directors who I felt might have found a different job description, and perhaps weren’t the storytellers that their initial meetings with each of us actors might have indicated. Actors are kind of canaries in the coalmine emotionally, and you have to go to whatever place is necessary inside yourself. If you don’t have somebody there who at least respects that – most of what I was referring to is that the arrogance goes further than charm. I am aware that I can be a difficult person to like from afar often. I sometimes think I have a great love affair with humanity, but not too good about humans,” he said.

Sean also addressed his romantic life.

“Am I difficult? Yeah, I think so…I will say that I’m a person who feels them and expresses them energetically, that has misled people to think that I think it’s all about me. I think that the energy you’re talking about would be with a lady named Leila George. She knows me better than I do on this level. That doesn’t mean that I agree with her perceptions, but I certainly find them fascinating.”

In April, it was revealed that Sean‘s nonprofit organization while be expanding their free testing sites.
