Sean Penn calls Bannon a 'Hollywood Wannabe'
Sean Penn has said ex-film producer and current White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is a "Hollywood wannabe".
The two have worked together more than 25 years ago on Penn's directorial debut, The Indian Runner. Penn described Bannon as "bitter" and "bloated" to website Death and Taxes, reported People magazine.
"Bannon was then, as he is now, simply another bitter Hollywood wannabe who went rogue by way of toxic narcissistic iconoclasm.
"But, deep in his heart, he's just a conniving hateful bloated punk who despises mankind. And then there are also the bad things about him," Penn said.
Penn is not the only Hollywood star to take a shot at Bannon as actor George Clooney had told a French news channel that, "Steve Bannon is a failed film writer and director."
