Vogue magazine sent Sean Penn a call for an interview to discuss the novel. The interview began simply with the question of Sean Penn’s location and Penn explained to the interview that he was in his home in L.A.

 

Penn was then asked about the difference between books and movies in regards to production, promotion, and touring. Penn explained that books are very much different. With a book, if it fails, no one is to blame but the author; a movie can fail due to a wide variety of reasons. Before a movie reaches the fans, it goes through hundreds of hands, sometimes through dozens of companies. Sean Penn said he likes the feeling of creating something that is 100-percent his. “[I] have no apologies to make,” Penn said.

 

Sean Penn claimed he wrote Bob honey who just do stuff simply because he wasn’t happy playing with others any longer. “I really had a lot on my mind that I wanted to do or free up in ways that didn’t depends either on creative collaborators or financial backing,” Penn said.
