Sean Penn, 62, gave just one of his Academy Awards to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Nov. 8. The actor, who has two Oscars, which include a single for his purpose in the 2003 movie Mystic River and another for his job in 2008’s Milk, sat down for a meeting with the leader all through his 2nd visit to Kyiv, Ukraine this year after the nation went to war with Russia in Feb. A movie of the memorable and touching moment was unveiled by Ukraine’s presidential push-assistance shortly right after it took place.

“This is for you,” Sean, who wore a white t-shirt and denims, advised Zelensky just after he shook his hand, sat down, and pulled the Oscar out of a black bag. “It’s just a symbolic silly issue, but if I know this is in this article with you then I’ll really feel superior and stronger for the combat.” At initially, the president refused to take the statue, whilst he said, “That is yours” and called it “a terrific honor,” but Sean insisted he preserve it. “When you earn, bring it back to Malibu. I’ll sense substantially much better realizing a piece of me is in this article,” he claimed. Zelensky then reported, “Okay” as he shook his hand yet again.
Zelensky, who, like Sean, was an actor before he turned Ukraine’s president, was later noticed proudly putting the Oscar on the mantelpiece in his presidential business. He also went on to current Sean with a Ukrainian Buy of Advantage to thank him “for his sincere assistance and major contribution to the popularisation of Ukraine in the world.”
