Steve Ban­non is a bloated punk: Sean Penn

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Long be­fore ex-film pro­ducer Steve Ban­non’s (be­low) rise to po­lit­i­cal power as chief strate­gist in the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion, he was a film pro­ducer try­ing to hack it in Hol­ly­wood. While he might no longer have his sights on Hol­ly­wood any­more, he did kick­start his film career work­ing with Amer­i­can ac­tor Sean Penn (left) in 1991, help­ing pro­duce the ac­tor’s di­rec­to­rial de­but, The In­dian Run­ner. When asked about this, Penn said, “Ban­non was then, as he is now, sim­ply an­other bit­ter Hol­ly­wood wannabe who went rogue by way of toxic nar­cis­sis­tic icon­o­clasm.”

He fur­ther added, “But, deep in his heart, he’s just a con­niv­ing hate­ful bloated punk who de­spises mankind.”

Penn is not the only Hol­ly­wood star to take a shot at Ban­non as ac­tor Ge­orge Clooney had ear­lier told a French news chan­nel that, “Steve Ban­non is a failed film writer and di­rec­tor.”
