Laura Dern Loves Sean Penn

In the terrific podcast Off Camera with Sam Jones, Laura Dern speaks about how essential it is to work with actors and directors who don't bring judgment to her character, who are open to whatever happens and like the gray areas. She specifically mentions Sean Pean, also highlighting the importance of scene partners pushing each other to do better work. 

Sean is a great example... he’s my favorite actor I’ve ever worked with for off-camera. This dude is off-camera and he’s there 8 million percent even more. He just wants to try everything he can for you and its a very selfless experience to witness. And he just wants to give so much for you to - not just for to do your best or be good but for you to explore all the options. And you know, that’s super fun to work with people like that.
