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 ...

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."

Most of this story is not true and if you were in the press room, you would know. Nice one, TMZ, but you're off base on this one.

I'd pay good money to see someone beat Sean Penns ass. This dude is a huge baby and needs to grow up. I'd love to see him get a good old fashioned ass whoopin. Poor baby, doesn't like his picture taken. I'd love to see a pap shove a camera up his a$$ with no lube. THAT WOULD SCREAM OSCAR!

Sounds like people just wanting to start gossip like Oscar reps (who have done it all week) and E!. Geez, give it a rest.

Jesus people. If you can't even manage to put aside your differences and act civil at an event like the Oscar's, stay the f home. Pathetic.

What kind of story is this? You are bascially saying that nobody saw anything, so there is no story. What are you even talking about?

Sean never wants Robin when she stands by his side. Didn't he like show up to the Oscars a few years ago without his wife and on the arm of some other chic? He needs to let her move on and get on with her life.

So in other words, you're making a big deal about nothing? I hope Seinfeld sues you for plagiarism... TMZ is the biggest tool organization this side of Home Depot. Harvey what's his face needs to sprayed with bug repellent...

Angry Democrat 'Sky Blu' from LMFAO attack GOP Romney on Purpose .    

Why do Ultra Rich stars (like Sean Penn) support Violent Dictators ?
Hugo Chavez Defended his Close Friend in Iran for ‘Denying the Holocaust’. Hugo Chavez & Libya Qaddfi is a Friend and Ally of Al Bashir of Darfur. Al-Bashir has been charged with Genocide in Darfur towards Native Africans .
Brief Bio: Hugo chavez has removed (at Gun Point) most of his democratically elected political opponents (like Rosales) , has laws against political dissent speech , chavez has a national police force (Chavistas) that spread violence & hate to anyone thought to be Chavez political opponent , over 3,000 missing political activists or opponents in Venezuela, Hugo Chavez is Anti-Semitic & Anti -Catholic (calls Catholics “Liars & Perverts”), Unspeakable acts of real torture towards political dissents, according to reports, latin american 1st fascist leader (according to many), ETC
Why do Mega Millionaire Celebrities like Sean Penn, Oliver Stone, Danny Glover, or Michael Moore Support Violent Dictators when the same rights that they are granted (freedom of speech) are entirely taken in countries like Chavez's Venezuela, Castro Cuba, or Bashir's Darfur ?
