Sean Penn Got Emotional When Talking About Haiti on 'Today'


Sean Penn


During a one-on-one with host Ann Curry, the actor teared up as he answered her question about his hope for the shattered country.

Sean Penn brings forward the issue of unfinished aid for Haiti again in an interview with "The Today Show". Instead of throwing rage in front of reporters like he did during his J/P Haitian Relief Organization effort at Cannes Film Festival, the actor held back tears when talking about the devastated country.

Host Ann Curry asked him about the meaning of victory in Haiti. The actor got emotional when saying he hoped young Haitians will have the education they deserve and telling the story of a policeman who lost his family in the earthquake but put on his uniform immediately to help others.

Curry also discussed the reputation he attained during his months of stay in Haiti as international volunteers' coordinator. "Most of the people I'm angry at are usually international volunteers who are coming over to stamp themselves with a do-gooder label. ...I don't control my temper well, I guess," he said with a smile.

On Thursday, May 17 Penn blasted media and fellow celebrities for abandoning Haiti. "The reason we have Haiti fatigue is because there was never a commitment in the first place. It's not only celebrities who went for a day. It's the whole f***ing world. It's all of you," he said in a room full of reporters.
