Sean Penn
Contest Directions: American actor Sean Penn is celebrating his 50th birthday today. America loves Sean and it's hard to believe he's already half a century old. It seems like not long ago he was married to Madonna, and anyone who spends more than 5 minutes with Madonna should be handsomely rewarded. Sean was married to her for 4 years. Well done Sean. Penn entertained us with many great roles, having won two Oscars of his own for Best Actor and probably stolen and melted down countless others as a warning to anyone in Hollywood who tries to cross him. More than just an actor, Penn is also a true comedian and prankster, naming his first publicly acknowledged son Hopper Jack after the tool used to lift bins, which irritated his best friends Jack Nicholson and Dennis Hopper enormously, as you can imagine.
Happy 50th Birthday, Sean, we salute you!
To celebrate the 50th birthday of Sean Penn, photoshop him any way you wish.
