PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (defend.ht)- Actor and activist Sean Penn is keen to cut back on his alcohol intake after turning to booze at night during the ongoing relief effort in Haiti, reports The San Francisco Chronicle.
The â€śMilkâ€ť star has worked tirelessly to raise awareness and money for the impoverished nation since it was struck by a devastating earthquake in 2010, even setting up his own charity, the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
He spends a huge amount of time in the country â€“ but the tough work is taking its toll on Pennâ€™s health.
The star tells Britainâ€™s Telegraph magazine, â€śYouâ€™re going up and down hills all day, stressed, eating a lot of c**p. And you tend to drink at night â€“ rum punch â€“ which Iâ€™m also trying to curb.â€ť
But Penn is determined to carry on the humanitarian work for as long as possible: â€śAs long as itâ€™s productive, Iâ€™ll stay down there.â€ť
