24 hours doesn't count as a hunger strike, it's more a period of mild inconvenience. Maybe Sarandon and Penn should have a competition, lock them in a room together and starve them, the first to die loses.
Just a fraction of what they get paid for a single film appearance would feed a village, build a school, or equip a hospital. When I see them opening their checkbooks, or better yet, going over personally to help out, I'll respect what they say.
Phony "hunger strikes" and preaching from the safety of their multi-million dollar mansions is pahetic.
24 hours isn't a hungerstrike, it's a busy day in the office followed by a field ex with a few random location moves and stags thrown in for good measure et some bad admin. I know people who do 24 hour fasts, or longer for religious reasons once at least week/month or so.
Ah yes, Sean Penn, son of one Leo Penn, who was blacklisted during the 1950s - this, and overweaning vanity, seems to be the primary motivation for Penn's 'activism'. What can I say Sean? - the whiff of treason's a b*tch...
[Edited in case Sean and the rest of the smoked-salmon socialists in Hollywood come and get me... ...actually, I don't care! nyah! nyah! nyah! nyah! ]
If they really wanted to make a difference to the people of this world then they should 'fast' indefinitely, and preserve additional oxygen for people who matter. Now that WOULD be news. This just smacks of PR stunt, I would be interested to learn if either has a film due for release in the near future.
