The Welsh singer was stunned when Penn and fellow star JEFF GOLDBLUM sat behind him on a plane, and used the opportunity to try forge his way into Hollywood.
However, the daring star's efforts to land a movie deal evidently failed to impress the Mystic River actor - he's yet to respond to Jones' script.
He says, "I haven't bumped into him since I met him at Los Angeles airport that one time. He knew us from the I AM SAM soundtrack - we were on it and he's in the movie.
"He ended up sitting behind us on the plane, with Jeff Goldblum. It was the weirdest day of my life. I happened to have my script in my bag, but I haven't heard any more of it."04/02/2004 09:12
