Sean Penn

Close Encounter

At Academy Awards

3/8/2010 7:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There are reports swirling that Sean Penn had a confrontation last night with "The Hurt Locker" producer Greg Shapiro -- who happens to be the current BF of Sean's estranged ex Robin Wright. We've been making calls and here's what we know ...

0308_sean_wife_penn_exd_tmz_01-1
First, reports that Sean was kicked out of the Governors Ball are not true because Sean was never there in the first place -- by his own choice. We've also confirmed Sean was not banned from the ball.

But Sean and Greg were in the same room with each other at one point in the night -- as reported by E!'s Marc Malkin -- and it was all because of Sandra Bullock.

After Sean presented the Best Actress award to Sandra, both presenter and winner are supposed to go to an elevator which takes them near the press room. We're told Sandra lingered around backstage for a little while -- so Sean went to the elevator by himself.

After Sean emerged from the elevator and was waiting around for Sandra, a group of people from "The Hurt Locker" came up in the elevator right after the Best Picture announcement -- Greg Shapiro was in that group.

We're told Sean was nearby when Greg got off the elevator -- but we spoke to several people who say there was no fight. One insider tells us, "I didn't see it happen ... something could've happened, but if it did, it was minor and only lasted a second."

Where, in the J school
that one or several of you tmz-sezes may have a degree from,

were you folks taught that using incompletely sourced comments published BEFORE you have completed even a minimally proficient (high school level) vetting or on-the-record witness attribution does not rise to the level of doing producing a professional, quality work product?

Did no one at tmz WONDER OR ASK whether the 'source(s)' from where this story originated is/are credible?

Did no one QUESTION whether a certain a self-interested pap and/or his pals, didn't plant this story?



Does no one recognize that publishing a story OF THIS TYPE is an open invitation for a defamation, false light, libel suit?

Its going to come out guys were duped and played ...


Before tmz cowardly removes this libelous character assianation, tmz owes Sean Penn a red banner retraction and mea culpa apology,
plus, donation of $10,000 to the Jenkins-Penn Haiti Relief Fund.

DO EXPLAIN HARVEY,
HOW IS IT A PROFESSIONAL NEWSROOM WORK PRODUCT
TO PUBLISH AN POTENTIALLY INACCURATE, POORLY SOURCED,
4TH OR 5TH HAND)
A BLIND ITEM
WHICH A CAPITALIZES ON THE REPUTATION OF A PUBLICLY CONTROVERSIAL ICONOCLAST AND HUMANITARIAN
AND EXPLOITS AS IT IMPLIED PREMISE,
THE FACT THAT THE SUBJECT LIVES HIS LIFE IN A MANNER THAT MAKES HIM A LIGHTENING ROD OF APPROBATION AND CRITICISM?

DO TELL US IN YOUR THE NEXT LIVE CHAT..

again cue ...
the predictable 80+ comments from tmz's loyal retinue of
redneck
digital porno tweakers
to twaddle
their GED-challenged, ungrammatical
tangential
ad hominine
regurgitations.

Thus on cue .. the euponymously named IWANTTOHOLDYOURBIGTITS weighs in …

proving my point.

Not surprisingly, occurring on the main pop culture site of the digital wasteland that enables and abets the most virulent infantile verbiage, some of it from its own staff (i.e mikey and the other boys who're thin skinned and can't handle criticism).

WHY DOES TMZ ELEVATE AS AN OPERATING PRINCIPLE ITS REFUSAL TO MODERATE OR KEEP OFF OFFENSIVE PROFANITY AND SPAMMING?


So here he comes with unselfconscious irony
in the rhetoric of legendarily poorly controlled rage

prompting concerns for his behavioral health) “iwantsmymoma’s breasts” slithers out to post (under this moniker) ONLY in reply when an entry from 'kidney donor' appears… typing yet another of his prototypical impotent vulgarity-laded tirades, disconnected from logical discourse …

Interesting … entertaining for sadists no doubt

the way tmz consistently concocts the digital equivalent of rancid red meat to hook ADD-addled juveniles and reel in the most exceedingly pathological loonies of what Harvey sarcastically refers to as
“the viewers in the heartland”.

If tmz must rely on by ludricous posts from

immessedupbcauseinvergottosuckonmymoma’s breasts” as

'measures' of popularity and traffic
then bring on the illiterate bully-coward clowns …


just a matter of time before the bespeckled tea party caribou barbie dribbles her nationalistic fervor - if she didn't already show up late in the thread with her 'Alinsky' reference in the last tmz Bristol-Levi story

I can't stand Sean Penn. I hope that guy kicks his ass. Robin must be nuts too being married to him all that time. He hangs out with dictators people. He think Hugo Chavez is a swell guy.

Kidneydonor-

Are you completely insane? I am a psychiatrist in the great state of Maryland and I can tell you that your rantings remind me of the unibomber's many rambling manifestos.

Did you forget to take your meds this morning? Holy crap man, chill out. Your over use of "big words" is actually classified as a mental/emotional disorder and shows a huge deficit in self esteem. Not to mention your judgemental attitude towards anyone who doesn't agree with you. Please, for your own good, and for the good of anyone close to you, see a mental health provider.
You need it!!

How can there be "Exclusive Detail" when nothing was seen ever happening? I like reading the stuff about stars as much as anyone, but when are the writers going to be held accountable for the crap they place as "articles"? Do editors not exist anymore?

MrOffshore    

Sean Penn...what a toolbag. It's time to realize that ol' Penn doesn't have any game with the ladies...look at who his ex left him for...a bigger toolbag...both of these guys are pathetic losers. And as stated, Penn does need his ass handed to him...he's one of the biggest cry babies in H-wood...if it doesn't go his way he'll melt down. Get a diaper little man and move one.

Surrounded by Sociopaths    

I see. Inflammatory headlines and photos on a "story" that is built around the fact that there is NO STORY? Isn't there enough actual disfunction and misery to milk your dirty dollars from? The courage of attorneys doesn't translate to much in dark alleys.

c    

does penn have a star on the walk of fame? if so where is it? No one can find it that i know of. its probably in haiti, i think. Have you ever taken a video of one of your movies to haiti and did the people there like it? Why are you so angry all the time?

I know how that penn feels because the last timeI went to the theater 10 min into the movie some old guy came in with plaid bermuda shorts and told everyone the plot and ending. he thought he was real funny for doing it. I am not going out to a movie any more.
