Actress Thandiwe Newton shuts down ‘jibbering FOOL’ Sean Penn’s remarks about ‘feminised’ men


Thandiwe Newton simply handled Sean Penn the identical method her Westworld character treats most people: Without mercy.

Newton known as the Mystic River Oscar winner a “jibbering FOOL” over feedback he made not too long ago about men’s masculinity – or lack thereof – in a latest interview with The Independent.

The seed was planted earlier this month when the Britain’s iNews talked to Penn about masculinity, which apparently he has been considering about loads recently.

“I am in the club that believes that men in American culture have become wildly feminised,” mentioned the Licorice Pizza actor, 61. “I don’t think that being a brute or having insensitivity or disrespect for women is anything to do with masculinity, or ever did. But I don’t think that (in order) to be fair to women, we should become them.”

When he talked to The Independent a few weeks later, he doubled down and gave his opinion a wardrobe.

“I think that men have, in my view, become quite feminised,” he mentioned within the new article, which was printed over the weekend. “I have these very strong women in my life who do not take masculinity as a sign of oppression toward them. There are a lot of, I think, cowardly genes that lead to people surrendering their jeans and putting on a skirt.”

After Variety printed its tackle the matter and promoted it on social media, Newton, 49, entered the fray.

“Dude what are you SAY-ING?? Like for REAL? You’re a jibbering FOOL,” she tweeted Sunday (Jan 30), quoting the Variety promo. “MF you used to be sexy but now you’re just tragic.”

Newton continued in a second tweet, which famous that Penn had accomplished his Independent interview with daughter Dylan Penn, an actor and mannequin whose mom is Robin Wright. Sean, Dylan and Dylan’s brother Hopper Penn all seem within the new film Flag Day, which Sean Penn directed.

“In front of your DAUGHTER!? That poor little mite,” Newton wrote. “Thank God her Mum’s so dope. Please stop ruining the brilliance of #LicoricePizza with this nonsense.” – Los Angeles Times/Tribune News Service
