Penn To Attend First Oscars

Actor SEAN PENN will attend the ACADEMY AWARDS for the first time ever this year (04) - to support his film MYSTIC RIVER.

Penn, who shunned Sunday's (25JAN04) GOLDEN GLOBE awards in favour of a night in with his daughter, has refused to attend the OSCARS in the past, despite three previous Best Actor nominations for I AM SAM, SWEET AND LOWDOWN and DEAD MAN WALKING.

However, the 43-year-old - who created controversy in Hollywood last year (03) for his high-profile Anti-Iraq War stance - will now go to the glitzy ceremony in Los Angeles next month (28FEB04) after being nominated for his leading performance in the CLINT EASTWOOD-directed movie.

A friend tells the PAGESIX website, "(He) wants to stand up for Mystic River."
