Celebrity heroes

FILE - In this Saturday, April 10, 2010 file photo, U.S. actor Sean Penn carries the belongings of a person displaced by the earthquake as people are relocated from the Petionville Golf Club to a new camp, Corail-Cesselesse, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The actor who stormed onto the scene of one of the worst natural disasters in history two years ago has certainly not lost interest. Defying skeptics, he has put down roots in Haiti, a country he hadn't even visited before the January 2010 earthquake, and has become a major figure in the effort to rebuild.

Okay, perhaps hero is a tad of an overstatement, but isn't it nice to know celebs can play good samaritans not just scofflaws (we're talking to you Amanda Bynes).
