Sean Penn

So deep is his dissent for things like war and injustice that Penn often comes across as a humorless misanthrope to reporters and the public. But it's understandably hard for the actor to see past his passion for protest and admirable that he dedicates so much of his time to the causes he believes in. Arguably the one closest to Penn's heart is rebuilding Haiti, where he has spent a lot of time after the 2008 earthquake and tries hard to keep the world's attention on.
