Sean Penn will Smelt Oscar if Academy Awards Refuses Zelensky’s Speech

Academy Award-winning actor and humanitarian activist Sean Penn had harsh words for everyone involved in Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky does not address the awards show on Sunday.

Penn made the comments during an interview with CNN’s Jim Acosta.

“If the Academy has elected not to do it, if presenters have elected not to pursue the leadership in Ukraine — who are taking bullets and bombs for us along with the Ukrainian children that they are trying to protect — then I think that every single one of those people and every bit of that decision will have been the most obscene moment in all of Hollywood history,” Penn declared.

“And I hope that that is not what is happening.”

“And I myself, if it comes back to it, when I return [from Ukraine], I will smelt mine in public,” he vowed. “I pray that is not what has happened.”

Penn won Oscars for the movies “Milk” and “Mystic River.” He is the founder of Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE), which has been active in providing humanitarian relief in crisis areas for over a decade.

Penn has also been nominated three additional times in the best actor category.


  • Sean Penn is what happens when your parents drop you on your head…..never pretty.

  • Great actor but his head is twisted pretty wrong with his ultra liberal ideology….
    His Ukraine position is very worthy.

  • Who cares about Sean Penn?! And why in the world should Zelensky be at the Oscars while his country is at war? That is the most asinine thing I have ever heard. Sean Penny, you are a complete idiot.
