Sean Penn Raises $2mil For Haiti…In Cannes!

Sean Penn raises 2 mil

Looks like being pissed off at the world helped…

Sean Penn just raised $2 million for Haiti while at the Cannes Film Festival!

This comes right on the heels of Penn yelling at the world for abandoning Haiti after their 2010 earthquake, and it seems like Penn's and Paul Haggis' idea to fundraise at the even more than paid off.

The event was the first ever for the festival since 1996, and was the first time that three separate charities banded together to help one cause.

The last time the festival did anything like this came in the form of benefit screenings!

The main breadwinner for the charities was the auction. It included a three day trip to Haiti WITH Sean Penn (each of the three bidders who won promised over $128k each!), a Bono guitar, a lunch date with a Victoria's Secret Angel, and VIP access to their 2012 fashion show!

So fab! We're glad that Sean witness that while some people may have forgotten, not everyone in the world has!

Raising awareness again will certainly help people come back around!

John Edwards Sean Penn sex scandal advice

Obviously, his advice wasn't very good! LOLz!

In the latest development from John Edwards' campaign corruption trial, former speechwriter Wendy Button told the jury that her boss reached out to his Hollywood friends when shiz hit the fan with Rielle Hunter.

Before delivering an official statement in January of 2010 about the child he had out of wedlock, the Senator had copies sent to Sean Penn, Madeleine Stowe, and director Paul Haggis. Button said DOZENS of revisions were made to the statement before he delivered an apology to the public.

No reason was given as to

Oscar Winner Paul Haggis On Scientology: "I Was In A Cult For 34 Years!"

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayTom Cruise

paul haggis opens up about scientology

Uh oh! We hope he doesn't get hassled by Tom Cruise for speaking up about this!

For the first time ever, Crash/The Next Three Days director Paul Haggis has opened up to The New Yorker about his experiences with Scientology.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"I was in a cult for 34 years. Everyone else could see it. I don't know why I couldn't."

"There was a feeling of camaraderie that was something I'd never experienced; all these atheists looking for something to believe in, and all these loners looking for a club to join."

According to Haggis, he bailed on the church when they "declined to publicly denounce Proposition 8."

Good for U, Paul! We're VERY happy to hear that!

As one could imagine, The Church of Scientology did not appreciate The New Yorker's article, and they wrote a lengthy rebuttal statement, which you can check out, along with MUCH more from Haggis about Scientology, HERE.
