On Monday, Piers Morgan asked actor Sean Penn to offer his personal perspective on the recently concluded government shutdown:
“I think there’s a mental health problem in congress,” Penn said. “This would be solved by committing them by executive order.”
Slightly shocked by the comment, Morgan sought clarification:
“You literally commit what? People like Ted Cruz?”
Describing Cruz as his American brother, the star of "Milk" and "Mystic River" insisted that the Texas Senator needs professional help:
“I think we should take care of him,” Penn said.
Assuming you haven't spent the last three decades living beneath a rock, you're likely rather familiar with the name Corey Feldman.
From silver-screen hits like the "Goonies," "Stand By Me," and "The Lost Boys" it's no secret that the former child actor was inundated with fame from a very young age.
It was his unhealthy relationship with drugs and partying however, that also began to make him infamous.
Many years since it all began, the now 42-year-old Feldman has penned his tell-all book, "Coreyography," and on Monday he joined Piers Morgan for a candid conversation.
His years of pop culture success yielded a close personal friendship with the late pop super-star Michael Jackson, a man Feldman says was “the big brother I never had quite honestly.”
Both Feldman and Jackson shared a troubled past that included abuse at the hands of their respective parents, a topic the actor admits was broached during his time with the "King of Pop."
“We discussed everything," he began. “The abuse with my parents and also the difficulties of having to go to work every day instead of being able to play," Feldman noted.
Summarizing the friendship, Feldman noted their mutually experienced life issues:
"You know both of us shared that similarity. We were robbed of our childhoods.”
