LOS ANGELES (AP) —  Sean Penn says he thinks Charlie Sheen could do a lot of good in Haiti, both for himself and the nation struggling to recover from a devastating earthquake.

The Academy Award winner says in a statement that he’d like to “show my old friend the world of needs on the ground in Haiti.”

Sheen told a television reporter that he and Penn were planning a trip to the Caribbean nation, although no date for their travel has been announced.

Penn says, “If he chooses to give support, I’ll trust it.”

Sheen, who has been on a media blitz since Monday, says he would like to bring the attention of the world back to Haiti, where Penn has been a fixture since a January 2010 earthquake destroyed more than 500,000 homes.

    This would be great. I would love to see the 2 of them pull something fantastic off and really do some good, show the world Hollywood just isn’t all glitter and empty heads but people who can do things for the betterment of others.

    Charlie Sheen is a self-absorbed twit. The ONLY reason he would deign to assist in Haiti is to get some good PR. Charlie Sheen only cares about Charlie Sheen and his statements notwithstanding, needs to get some major drug and mental health assistance. I wish he would just go away. I don’t like Sean Penn but at least he is consistent and apparently very real about his desire to help in Haiti.

    What Charlie Sheen needs right now is professional help. He can’t even help himself much less help people in Haiiti. Just look at the ranting, and gibberish talk he’s been giving to the media. That is a crack head talking, and not a normal person. His family needs to intervene before his name ends up on the orbituary.

    Haiti may do some good for him. Get him out of his pity party and into serving others. Physical labor time away from Hollywood, and an opportunity for some self reflection. He can tweet all he wants about the devastation and poverty that has stricken the country. The sooner he gets out of the Hollywood limelight the better.
