Sean Penn wants your baby

The Hollywood star and Charlize Theron’s ex-boyfriend Sean Penn is currently in South Africa directing his latest film, The Last Face.

Over the weekend the production sent out an “urgent casting call” calling upon a pregnant black woman who’s about to give birth to step forward.

According to the casting call, the production needs a new-born baby, preferably born over the past weekend, to be used on set this week.

It even notes that “transport can be arranged” if the baby needs a ride from the maternity ward to where the film is shooting at Lourensford wine estate outside Somerset West.

But before the mother thinks this is her chance to break into the film industry, the casting call makes it clear: “We will be using the baby only,” luckily adding “obviously the mother is allowed on set with the baby”.

The opportunity comes with a payday of R1500 per day.

Interestingly, in California, where most of America’s movies get made, it is illegal to use a new born baby in a film or television production before he or she is 15 days old.

Luckily for Sean no such rule applies here.
