There is no shame in saying that we all want to be loved by someone. As I look back over my life in romance, I don’t feel I’ve ever had that.
—Sean Penn on living his life completely devoid of the one thing that he’s always wanted—love. And guys, call me crazy, but I totally see this. Hear me out. You know, I get that probably no one’s ever loved Sean Penn wholly, and I get that it’s probably because he’s just too big-hearted himself, and too giving, and I feel so sorry for him.
I’m sure his never feelings about how he never “ever had that” has absolutely nothing to do with hitting ex-wives over the dome with baseball bats, or perceiving young starlets’ obsessive love as the real thing (?), because love is love and no amount of busted teeth or baseball bats could really dull the knife that cuts the deepest.
