- First I shared things with my parents and close friends. I know this sounds funny, but it’s true: when you’ve already told your Indian parents and the South Asian community that you intend to be an actor in life, really all the conversations that come after that are super easy, ”Penn said.

The actor pointed out that he wants a big Indian wedding, but that his partner would still like something more modest. But no matter what, he is willing to compromise. In 2009, he took a break from acting to deal with public relations at the White House, as an adviser to former President Obama.
