Penn: 'Celebrities Should Speak Out'

Sean Penn George W Bush Mystic River

Oscar winner Sean Penn refuses to let criticism stop him from being politically active and insists more celebrities should speak out for what they believe in.
Penn has regularly criticised the current US administration and made headlines in Toronto, Canada, earlier this month (SEP06) when he called President George W Bush "a Beelzebub - and a dumb one".
The Mystic River star makes no apologies for his tough talking or political activism: "I think it's incumbent upon everyone to speak up.
"Not enough people do it. Maybe they're afraid they'll be criticised or called a Nazi. But I hope that never makes me embarrassed to lend a hand or speak my mind."
Penn claims his political activism is geared more towards "civilians" and insists he wasn't trying to get publicity by joining recovery efforts in New Orleans, Louisiana, after Hurricane Katrina struck last year (05) - he was just trying to help.
He adds, "I was able to lend a hand and that's all I was there to do. People may want to make it more than that, but I don't want to dignify all these talking-head (jerks).
"At the end of the day, you have to do what you think is right, to act responsibly so you can live with yourself."

Kevin Bacon feels his career has failed to gain the kind of "recognition" he deserves - especially when it comes to the Academy Awards.

The 46-year-old actor felt disheartened when his performance in 1996's MURDER IN THE FIRST failed to secure him a Best Actor OSCAR nomination - and often wonders when his year will come for the prestigious award.

Bacon says, "Of course I'd like more recognition. And of course I'd rather have an Oscar than not. Year after year I've seen this season come and go - this club of which I am not a member.

Actor Sued Over Oscar Screeners Leak

Carmine Caridi Warner Brothers The Last Samurai Mystic River Big Fish

Veteran actor Carmine Caridi is being sued by film giants COLUMBIA and Warner BROS. after admitting to lending his screener copies of this year's OSCAR contenders to a friend who put them online.

The GODFATHER: PART III star, 70, told investigators he sent VHS copies of approximately 60 films per year to pal RUSSELL SPRAGUE who converted them onto the DVD format. Caridi insists he had no idea that Sprague would distribute the films via the internet and had sent them to him because he believed they were for the 51-year-old's personal entertainment.

However, furious bosses at Warner Bros. are asking for $150,000 (GBP88,235) each for copyright of The Last Samurai and Mystic River, meanwhile Columbia are demanding either actual damages or $150,000 (GBP88,235) infringement for movies SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE and Big Fish.
