Sean Penn banned from Oscars after-party for backstage confrontation
When he's not busy handing out Oscars or wishing rectal cancer on people, Sean Penn is getting banned from post-party festivities around L.A. E! says he was booted from the Governors Ball after having a confrontation with Greg Shapiro, who not only produced big winner The Hurt Locker, but is dating Robin Wright!
"Academy officials...said he was banned from the Ball," a source told E!'s Marc Malkin. Although Penn's rep denies that assertion, others also say Penn had words with the guy dating his one-time wife. He went to the Sunset Tower Hotel after-party instead.
Of course, a PR person from the Academy says Penn was welcome at the event, but why wouldn't they say that? The chance to see Sean Penn in a fistfight would be much more entertaining than anything on the Oscars stage.
