Sean Penn Talks Madonna in Haiti
It didn’t take much for Sean Penn to get his ex-wife to Haiti.
“I don’t know if I called her or if it was one time that we ran into each other but, I said, ‘Would you like to come down?'” the Milk actor told me at his J/P Haiti Relief Organization benefit. “She said she would. She came down with her son Rocco and it was great to have them down there.”
While the Haiti earthquake may have happened four years ago, Penn says there’s no time to stop working to rebuild the country.
“The value of what was done in the first place ends up at zero if we don’t continue and finish the support aspect of it that allows Haiti to be independent,” he said. “We’re moving there.”
Media coverage of Madonna and other celeb visits helps the world see “the enormous amount of change that’s happened in Haiti,” Penn said.
