Penn family feted with AFI prize

3 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Penn family was honored by the AFI Associates of the American Film Institute with its Platinum Circle Award at a luncheon at the Regent Beverly Wilshire. The clan was recognized Friday for their creative contributions to the entertainment community. Honored were family matriarch Eileen Ryan Penn; Sean Penn and his wife, actress Robin Wright Penn; singer-songwriter Michael Penn and his wife, singer-songwriter Aimee Mann; and Chris Penn. Leo Penn, the writer-director-actor who headed the family and who died in 1998, was also honored. "Families are sometimes feuding, sometimes fickle, but always there for each other and stronger as one," AFI director and CEO Jean Picker Firstenberg said. "This dynamic cannot be better embodied than the family of Leo and Eileen Penn, and we are here today, Eileen, to honor the incredible talent you nurtured together and shared with us all." »
