Sean Penn
6.3



You may remember Sean Penn for his bit role as a stoner in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. He also just won an academy award for a film called Milk. He also wore a beard in the latter film. Which is awesome.

Wearing a beard is definitely awesome, but that doesn’t mean the beard is awesome. Sean Penn’s beard — a temporary prop — is scraggly and appears to be an afterthought. It only spends a few scenes on screen and is altogether forgettable.

At least the film is consistently good. And Spiderman’s friend wears a pretty cool moustache.

This should probably be a review of Harvey Milk's beard...

It's not fair to judge Sean Penn for donning a replica in a biographical flick. (Who knows if he can actually grow a good one, but this isn't a likely representation.)

@ Joshua

Sean Penn grows a crappy beard, costume or not. Evidence: http://bit.ly/TyrIJ
