Sean Penn thanks Madonna for coming to Haiti

Sean Penn has thanked Madonna for coming to Haiti to help him with his charity work.

The 'Gangster Squad' actor - who was married to the 'Material Girl' singer for four years from 1985 to 1989 - is founder of the J/P Haitian Relief Organisation and Ambassador-at-Large for the Caribbean country and he was delighted when his ex-wife decided to come to the country to help him with his efforts, something that didn't take much convincing.

Speaking at his Help Haiti Home benefit gala, Penn told E! Online: 'I don't know if I called her [Madonna] or if it was one time that we ran into each other but, I said, 'Would you like to come down [to Haiti]?' She said she would. She came down with her son Rocco and it was great to have them down there.'

Haiti was struck by a devastating earthquake which killed more than 250,000 people four years ago and Penn has since been working to provide rescue and aid efforts to Haitian's whose lives have been destroyed by the disaster.

The 53-year-old actor - who has children Dylan Frances Penn and Hopper Jack Penn with his second wife, Robin Wright - added that Madonna's presence on the island helps the world to see 'the enormous amount of change that's happened in Haiti'.

That says something. As far as I know he never thanked Robin for a similar charity trip. If only the new 'girlfriend' weren't at the event Madonna could possibly have been invited. Maybe next year. ;)


@Rabbitbunny: Why was it?


That was great! Madonna and Rocco seeing Sean!
