Something interesting happened during the Oscars last night.
When Sean Penn announced Birdman as best picture at the 2015 Oscars, he joked of the film’s Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu, “Who gave this son of a bitch a green card?’ When everyone heard that, it raised some eyebrows. When asked about the incident, Iñárritu laughed it off stating:”Sean and I had that kind of brutal relationship where only true friendship can survive, When I was directing him in 21 Grams, he was always making jokes…I made a lot of very tough jokes (to him) that I will not tell you.”
He also added: “I didn’t find it offensive at all. I found it funny.”
No harm done then. Mr. Iñárritu has a sense of humor.
