Robin Wright Penn at Crossroads with Sean

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celeb News, Celebrity Gossip,

Sean and Robin Penn at the Oscars back in FebruaryRobin Wright Penn is at a “crossroads” in her relationship with Sean Penn. The Forrest Gump actress says she and the Milk actor, who called off divorce proceedings in May, are living apart after she realized what she wants from life.

The mother-of-two, who married Sean in 1996, said:

“I hit that crossroad a while ago. The ‘I know what I don’t want’ was flashing in neon lights. I have no regrets. I, we, have two amazing children we raised together. There’s no limbo anymore. There’s no time. I’m too old for this s**t.”

Robin also revealed she is looking forward to moving on with her life, especially her film career. The 43-year-old star said: “There’s clarity of life now. I think I’ve always been a follow-the-leader with my career, or maybe waiting for things to happen. Now I’m like, ‘I’m OK’ - I know the direction, whoever’s on board can go with me.”

Three Stooges Loses Sean Penn

Sean Penn, Jim Carrey and Benicio Del Toro

Jim Carrey might have been willing to gain 50 pounds to play Curly Howard, but his film has lost an entire body. Sean Penn, who was scheduled to play Larry Fine in the Three Stooges, has just dropped out of the project.

The Farrelly brothers film would have joined the two-time Oscar winner with Carrey and Benicio Del Toro. (The Che star was picked to star as Moe Howard.) Unfortunately, Sean has reportedly decided to put family before work. (His rocky relationship with Robin Wright Penn is currently back on.) That choice means giving up a role in Cartel as well.

It’s not known at this point what Sean’s leave will mean for the long-awaited comedy. Stooges was slated to begin production sometime in August. If the studio opts to wait for his return, the film could be delayed for another year.

To play the role of Curly Howard, the Yes Man star hopes to pack an extra 50 pounds to his frame. Jenny told Ellen Degeneres on the daytime talk show that audiences will eventually be “blown away” by his overall transformation. That includes his impersonation of the famous character.

What do Sean Penn, and Seth Rogen have in common? According to the unemployed name in this group, they could be starring in a movie together.

In the April issue of Nylon magazine, the 22-year-old tabloid fixture expressed a concern many people are now sharing: a lack of work. “It’s scary when you realize, ‘Oh my God, I’m not working. And I have a house to pay for now.’” (When exactly did you realize that, honey—before or after you went to the club?)

And though she admits being turned down for Tim Burton’s adaptation of , Lindsay claims she still has other possible projects out there.

The Oscars

After a year away from live Oscars coverage, I’m thrilled to be back for the 2009 Academy Awards.

Even though Dark Knight‘s snub will probably keep a number of viewers away (how many can honestly say they’ve seen The Reader?), I’m eagerly anticipating several moments from this evening’s broadcast.

Will Heath Ledger’s family bring the house to tears? Is Mickey Rourke going to make the producers wince? Will the cameras pan to Brangelina after Jennifer Aniston’s presentation? Are Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron really (really?) going to do a song and dance number?

To find out if this will be the year of the Slumdog or the underdog, stay tuned here for the live results!

Despite no major wins for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button at Jan. 11’s Golden Globes, the film lead all entries at this morning’s Academy Award nominations. The Brad Pitt feature will go into next month’s ceremony with 13 opportunities to walk away with at least one statue. (Slumdog Millionaire will have 10 chances.)

Here are some of the noteworthy mentions from today’s press conference:

  • (The Reader) - a double-winner just a few weeks ago - only received one nomination this morning. Meryl Streep will only get one chance as well for her role in Doubt.
  • Although it wasn’t represented at the Globes, Frozen River was recognized several times today.
  • ‘s nomination (on the anniversary of his death!) was expected; The Dark Knight‘s omission was a disappointment.
  • Four acting nods for Doubt didn’t equate to an honor for the film.
  • Several pleasant announcements in the Best Actor/Supporting Actor categories: Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road) and (Tropic Thunder). Shannon got the only major nom for his picture.
