Penn 'Helped' Team America

Film-makers MATT STONE and TREY PARKER have thanked SEAN PENN for vociferously objecting to their new film TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE - because it's given the film free publicity.

When the OSCAR-winner discovered his anti-war views were being parodied in the puppet picture, Penn fired off a letter to the pair - also responsible for animated TV series SOUTH PARK - ending it with the words "f**k off".

But Parker and Stone are thrilled with the publiciy Penn's outburst have given the film.

Parker says, "There isn't anything he could have done to help us more. Like, he helped the movie so much. Like, he released this letter and it gets picked up all over."
