Well, one thing is clear: actor/director/writer Sean Penn’s give a f*ck is broken — not that he ever had much to begin with. Penn, making a rare appearance on late night television, spoke with Conan O’Brien to discuss his new novel Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff. At one point, Penn veered off into a discussion of what it was like working with Steve Bannon on his 1991 indie film, The Indian Runner.
Clearly, Penn wasn’t a fan then, and still isn’t. He had this to say about Bannon:
I would say he exerted the same level of charm he does today. That was my first sense of him that he was other than the C word, charming, he was a crook, I think is what I thought.
But Penn wasn’t finished. He also pointed out that Bannon had not, shall we say, aged gracefully:
I didn’t even know it was the same Steve Bannon until I looked at him closely and imagined the Steve Bannon I knew but where the toxins of the soul so deteriorate and bloat and weld into this… I don’t think you can age like that without hating people.

Sean Penn recalled working with Steve Bannon on a movie in the 1990s, and said Donald Trump's former chief strategist “exerted the same level of charm” back then “that he does today.” https://t.co/55dp03iJDI

I must say, Bannon proves that evil rots a human inside and out. Sell your soul to the devil and your body will record the transaction.
