Charlize Theron Gets Sean Penn to Destroy All of His Guns
Sorry Charlize, I guess it’s good you’re with Sean because it just wouldn’t have worked out between us.
The guns were then turned into a sculpture by artist Jeff Koons. The sculpture was then bought at a charity auction by Anderson Cooper. Who did Anderson outbid for the statue? Piers F**KING Morgan.
I have to say, this whole situation is making me a little sick to my stomach.
According to E! Online,
While Penn didn’t refer to Theron by her name, he said that “a strong woman who happens to be from South Africa” changed his mind about owning the deadly weapons. (Theron was just 17 when her mother shot and killed her father after he apparently fired his own gun into the future Oscar-winner’s bedroom after a night of drinking and threatening to kill her.)
“Being provoked by this aforementioned strong woman and considering how liberating of bulls–t and ugliness it would be not only get rid of the guns I have in the continental United States but also to destroy them, Jeff Koons and I had a chat the other day,” Penn said.
