Licorice Pizza director Paul Thomas Anderson revealed Saturday at the 74th Directors Guild of America Awards that two-time Oscar winner Sean Penn tested positive for COVID-19 following his trip to Ukraine.

‘Sean tested positive for Covid,’ announced the 51-year-old filmmaker to laughter from the industry crowd at The Beverly Hilton.

‘Which is kind of crazy considering what he’s done for all of us. [It’s like] a World War I veteran coming home, slipping on a step. So, it’s a drag not to have him here.

On the mend! Licorice Pizza director Paul Thomas Anderson (L) revealed Saturday at the 74th Directors Guild of America Awards that two-time Oscar winner Sean Penn (R) tested positive for COVID-19 following his trip to Ukraine

‘It’s a pleasure to work with him and all the actors. It’s the best part of this job that we all have…and I feel very grateful to be here.’

Paul was referring – not to Ukraine – but to the 61-year-old humanitarian’s tireless work as co-founder of CORE, a crisis response organization which administered 2.6M Covid vaccines and 6.3M Covid tests.

Last summer, Sean and co-founder Ann Young Lee were named Variety’s Philanthropists of the Year for their work with CORE, which was originally formed in 2010 following the massive 7.0 earthquake that ravaged Haiti.

Instead, Penn enlisted his Armani-clad estranged third wife Leila George to present a special medallion to Anderson, who lost the night’s top prize to Jane Campion.
