Posted in Eileen Ryan, Hopper Penn, Sean Penn on October 18, 2010 by fadedblog

He may be an award-winning actor, but Sean Penn is primarily a family man.

The Milk star made the most of a dreary afternoon in Los Angeles on Sunday (October 17) where he took his son Hopper Penn to lunch in Santa Monica, CA. The father-son duo were joined by Sean’s mother Eileen Ryan as they enjoyed an day of fine dining.

Sean recently made headlines when his J/P Haitian Relief Organization was funded with half a million dollars by the William J. Clinton Foundation to help provide health care, education and job training to tens of thousands of people displaced by the earthquake that struck Haiti in January.

Sean’s organization manages a refugee camp in Port-au-Prince and is working to relocate its 55,000 residents. The group also provides medical services, counseling and educational seminars.

Next up for Sean? He’s set to fly to New Mexico to film a portion of a film co-starring Frances McDormand.

Helmed by acclaimed director Paolo Sorrentino, This Must Be The Place focuses on the journey of Sean’s character as he seeks to avenge his late father’s humiliation in a Nazi camp.
