 Bill O'Reilly: I'll Never Watch Another Sean Penn Movie


Monday March 30, 2009

Bill O'Reilly and Sean Penn
 

Don't ask Bill O'Reilly what he thought of Milk. Or any other Sean Penn film, for that matter.

In a new Hollywood Reporter interview, the conservative (who marks his 100th consecutive month as the No. 1-rated Fox News show on Tuesday) says he refuses to watch "just Sean Penn" movies because of the liberal actor's political views.

"He's a great actor, and if you hire him, you'll get a good performance," O'Reilly said. "I'm just not going to give a guy who gives aid and comfort to people like [Iran president Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez and Saddam Hussein, when he was alive, my 10 bucks. That's my right as an American."

(Penn visited Iran briefly in December 2002 and later took out an ad in the Washington Post accusing President Bush for his "deconstruction of civil liberties" there. In 2007, Penn also met with Venezuelan president Chavez, who praised the actor for urging Americans to impeach Bush.)

O'Reilly denied he was encouraging a new Blacklist era.

"It's a personal decision," he said of boycotting Penn's pictures. "I don't tell people how to vote or how to spend their money. I don't tell people how to do anything. In America, you decide for yourself. We don't endorse anybody here or promote a political party, which is why we've been so successful."

Clint Eastwood, on the other hand, is O'Reilly's "No. 1" favorite celeb.

"I admire him because he's a self-made guy," he said. "Gene Hackman, because I've never seen him give a bad performance. Al Pacino, particularly the early stuff."

Unforgiven was his favorite Eastwood flick, but his favorite ones of all time?

"Godfather and Godfather II, O'Reilly said. "M*A*S*H; the original The Producers. I'm a big movie guy.

I think O'Reily's a jackass and I doubt Sean Penn really cares if O'Reilly is fan. I am sure it thrills him to be able to piss off someone like Bill O'Reily. And I am so sick of hearing about how we went into Iraq because Saddam Hussein was such a bad man. Yeah he is. But thats not why we attacked. Bush didn't bomb the crap out of an entire country for noble reasons of freedom. That's where the criticism comes in. Not to mention Bush's support of torture and his own refusal to grant civil liberties.

You're not alone!! Actually besides the people on this board the only other person I know who listens to him is my dad which we obviously have VERY different views on things.

I never watch O'Reilly either. The only time I hear anything about him is at times like this when he's in the news or somebody sends me something with him on it. The only movie I ever saw with Sean Penn was Fast Times At Ridgemont high. Personally I think he sucks. Plus, he's ugly!  ANYBODY who'd marry Madonna definitely has a screw loose.
