Chris Penn used to come into the hotel bar I worked in YEARS ago (1999-2000). He was a fucking riot. He'd buy a bottle of Dewars (I think) and drink the whole thing in one afternoon. It was fucking crazy. But once he got drunk, he'd totally talk shit. He had a love/hate relationship with Sean. But he'd always say Sean was the biggest cokehead in Hollywood. Like everyday. I think that shows now.
Madonna looks really good in that pic.
Don't ask me for links but Debi Mazar, Madge's long time BFF, suggested that Sean Penn's been the only love of Madonna's life.
I can say I honestly believe that. And that makes it a very sad fact that this woman would love a man who hit her with a baseball bat.
Won't be long before that coke head's weakened heart gives out on him like it has for so many others.
[quote]He did not age well.
R1's photo is incredible.
Regardless of what you might think about either of the people in the photo, it's incredible.
Penn was always an ugly bastard but he's only gotten worse with age. I never understood why anyone thought he was physically attractive.
Thank goodness Penn and Vadge never had kids-most likely that kid would be an ugly fucker. Imagine a female with Penn's face and Vadge's teeth?
[quote]Sean Penn's been the only love of Madonna's life
Totally believable. She can never let him go, even after all the shit he did to her. But what does he think about her being a cunt and a control freak and a horrendous actress?
How can two time Academy Award winner Sean Penn stand being seen with such a bad actress?
Well, maybe he tied me up and hit me with a baseball cap but I'll grab any opportunity to get photographed with him because next to his old mug I look YOUNG, bitches!
OK, WHY did Penn age so badly? There's a lot of sun damage, but, say, Bryan Cranston has a huge amount of sun damage too but looks great. He's a huge smoker, which is also a factor, and he probably drinks a ton. But how would he look without the effects of the sun/nicotine/alcohol? My sense is that largely it is probably genetics, the way his facial structure continued to grow and change over time. I wonder how he could salvage his looks at this point, what plastic surgeries/laser/acid treatments could be done.
Madonna was so cute back in the day...
He grew up in Malibu. Nearly feral in Malibu, that's a lot of fucking sun damage. He could be the poster child for clean living and a positive outlook and still look like a fucking raisin.
[quote]His daughter Dylan is an actress and very pretty--so why wouldn't kids with Madonna be attractive?
Because Robin is far prettier than Madge.
Never liked Sean. He always looked like the Klan men (and their kids) I knew growing up. He totally could fit right in on those old photos of people standing around watching some poor black soul swinging from a tree. And laughing and pointing.
Always liked Chris, though. Sexy twink or ruddy porker, I always enjoyed him on screen. Even in crap movies/tv shows. Too bad Sean didn't OD instead of him. Was Chris gay and closeted?
[quote]Madonna is becoming an aging Mae West.
A DL revelation.
We have never heard that here before.
He was feeling out of shape, so he called her up to see if he could get a little batting practice in.
Sean Penn has spent his whole life scowling. I wonder if he still does shitty tattoos?
I mean what do you got on the West Side? Sean and Madonna?
R28, the hotel I worked at had tons of celebs come and stay there, Chris was my personal favorite. He was a raging, and I mean RAGING alcoholic, but always a riot.
One story: A guest who was staying there was wearing a Raiders jersey (which was very strange for such a posh hotel) and, after a few drinks, started saying homophobic slurs. Talking trash as if it was a dive bar. It was really off putting and uncomfortable for everyone there. Stupid straight guy stuff. I was only 20 then and very closeted, so Chris didn't do what he ended up doing for me, but just because he was such a cool guy.
Chris sort of motioned me over and said, "watch this. I'm freak this guy out". He then went on to start chatting up the guy, who obviously thought it was cool a celeb, even a C list one, was talking to him.
Chris started talking football and asked the guy who his favorite Raider was. The guy said Ken Stabler (for those not in the know, Stabler was nicknamed "The Snake" because he was hard to tackle, and led the Raiders to a few Superbowls back in the day). Chris says, "Oh really? I know him. Not well. I was at a party a couple of years with in Dallas at Troy Aikman's. My brother Sean and Troy go way back."
The guy is seriously getting ALL excited. Asking what was Troy like, what was Stabler like, etc. Chris, very casually, says, "Stabler was there was with his boyfriend. Big black guy. Nicest guy in the world. Both of them. They made a great couple."
The guy starts getting really upset. "No fucking way is Stabler gay. No fucking way."
Chris:"You think his nickname is "the snake" because he was elusive? Come on man. Don't be so naive."
The guy continues to freak out on him and eventually security gets called and escorts him out. It was awesome.
That is all.
She's trying very hard to look like Kate Winslet.
Penn is wearing the same outfit in both pics!
Penn looks fine. He looks better NOW than when was WAS younger. He was never a looker, for chrissake. The weathered, tan look is an improvement. Madonna looks good in that pic, too. Which is amazing since so much of the time she looks like hammered shit.
Who cares about Madge. But did he beat up the photographers?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
