Actor Sean Penn has threatened to ‘publicly smelt’ his Academy Award trophy if the organisers of the 2022 Oscars decide to not invite Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to the award ceremony this Sunday night. The actor has won Best Actor twice for Milk and Mystic River.

He has been invested in the Russia-Ukraine crisis and even visited Ukraine in the middle of the war recently.
