Sean Penn: Just The Beginning

This the season for Hollywood's big 1)blockbuster films, but when all is said and done, this may well be the year of Sean Penn. He's been nominated1 for three Oscars in the past eight years, and a fourth this spring is a 2)virtual2 certainty3.

(In a movie)
Penn: I had a dream, we all went out to Hollywood, and I became discovered as a major star.

Another man: You, a major star? You were dreaming.

Penn: Why not, I got a good face?

And we've been watching that face now for more than 20 years. After early years as a stage actor and 3)method acting4 student, Penn's now been in more than 30 films and has directed three more, but he believes his career is just beginning.

Penn: I'm right now where I thought I was going to start, you know I saw myself...

Interviewer: You're right now where "I thought I was gonna start?

Penn: Yeah, I saw myself in little theatres till I was 40 years old, looking down at 4)Levis and a pair of 5)roughout boots getting before putting on my 6)wardrobe, uh, and with my head hung just trying to get relaxed before going on stage and that I would get into the movies at about 40. That's what I thought was gonna happen.

Growing up in Southern California, Penn just wanted to be a surfer.

Interviewer: In surfing what would you describe this point in your life, I mean is this catching5 a big one?

Penn: You know, there are, if you go out in a 7)heat of surfers, somebody's gonna take off on a wave and then if the next wave is a bigger, better wave, that's the next person's gonna score higher. And that's a lot of, you know, a lot of it is timing6 and I don't know if there are such things as accidents but I think that, you know, I've found a stronger voice lately and, and that has a lot to do with all kinds of elements coming together, and together.

And it is coming together in a big way this year, so big that Sean Penn is now being acclaimed7 as one of the finest if not the finest film actor of his generation.

And one of the reasons is "Mystic River? a dark, 8)disturbing film about child 9)abuse, loyalty8, revenge9 and the murder of Penn's teenage daughter.

Interviewer: What does he have?

Clint Eastwood (Director of "Mystic River"): He has the ability to involve himself in the character that you see rarely. Once in a while every generation, you'll find somebody who can involve themselves to the depths that no matter how wide-open they play, it stays in a believable range because he's serious about what he does.

And he got as far as he wanted to go in "21 Grams", which opened a few weeks ago. Like "Mystic River" it's about guilt10, regret and revenge. For his performance he was awarded Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival.

Interviewer: You would not have any problems saying he is probably as good as he is in his generation?

Eastwood: No, not at all.

Interviewer: He's the best, maybe.

Eastwood: I think, I think at this particular time and out of his generation of actors coming up he's probably the very best.

Penn: Some part of you always wants to try to be the best that you can be and, to take 10)compliments as well and to take them...you know, you accept people's feelings especially when they're positive, but it's obviously nice. It's better than getting, you know, 11)kicked in the ass12.

潘: 我做了一个梦,梦里我们都去了好莱坞,我还被人发掘当上了大牌明星。


潘: 干嘛不可以?我可有一张俊脸。



记者: 现在才是“我当初计划投身电影圈的年龄”?

潘: 是的,那时我设想自己在四十岁之前一直呆在小剧院里:在换上戏服之前,我下身还穿着一条利维斯牛仔裤和一双便靴。我还耷拉着脑袋,试图在上台表演前放松。而我计划到四十岁左右才开始投身电影。我当初对未来就是这么想的。


记者: 用冲浪的话来说,你如何形容你人生中目前的状况?我是说,你是赶上了一个大浪头?

潘: 你知道,要是你去参加一场冲浪比赛,有人会乘着某一个浪出发,但如果下一个浪头更大、更适合冲浪的话,那么下一位选手的得分会更高。这样的情况有很多,嗯,很多情况下取决于时机。我不知道目前是不是得到了像“机遇”这类东西。但我觉得,嗯,我最近听到一个更为有力的看法:成功主要是各种因素反复揉合而成的结果。



克林特·伊斯特伍德(《神秘河》的导演): 他能够全情投入到角色里去,具备这种能力的人可不多见。偶尔你会发现,在每一代演员当中都有一些人,因为他们严肃认真地对待工作,所以不论出演何种角色,他们都能深度入戏,把角色演活,让观众相信一切似乎都是真实的。


记者: 要说他现在可能是同代演员中出类拔萃的,你不会反对吧?



伊斯特伍德: 我认为,我认为在肖恩·潘演艺生涯的这个特别时期,他在他那一代演员当中很可能是最棒的。

潘: 人有时候总想尽可能地做到最好,并希望得到赞赏,你知道,人们能够接受别人的意见,尤其接受正面的评论。这感觉当然好,总比批评强得多。
