Sean Penn Breaks Down During Emotional Today Show Interview About Haiti


By Daniel Gates



Sean Penn got emotional during an interview on the “Today Show” on Tuesday, talking about his continuing relief efforts in Haiti two years after an earthquake devastated the already impoverished island nation.


The actor fought tears as he told Ann Curry about his hope that one day young Haitians will be able to have the education they deserve, and again breaks down while telling a story about a policeman who lost his entire family in the disaster and immediately set about saving others.

Penn also talked about his reputation as a tough boss with international volunteers in Haiti.

He said, “I don’t control my temper well, I guess.”
