I'd have to say not. If he did you would see photos/footage of it for sure. That was the entire reason he was there to begin with.

I do not think so, but the pictures of him bailing out that boat with a plastic cup will live on forever.

Classic!!

His ego needs saving.

Here is what I found:


US actor Sean Penn bales water out of a boat with a plastic cup as he and members of his entourage make an attempt to rescue stranded people in New Orleans. Efforts by Penn to aid New Orleans victims stranded by Hurricane Katrina foundered badly Sunday, when the boat he was piloting to launch a rescue attempt sprang a leak. Penn had planned to rescue children waylaid by Katrina's flood waters, but apparently forgot to plug a hole in the bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch(AFP/Nicholas Kamm)

and the punch line................

"With the boat loaded with members of Penn's entourage, including a personal photographer, one bystander taunted the actor: "How are you going to get any people in that thing?"

They rescued at least one person, according to this reporter to accompanied Penn on his rescues.

Comment 39 posted by Matt Taibbi on September 7, 2005 01:38 AM:

I was on the boat with Sean Penn this weekend. That's me in the background of the above photo.

The article you wrote is completely mistaken. He did not bring a personal photographer. He came with me and his friend, a New Orleans writer named Douglas Brinkley, and the reason he came was because a friend of his had asked him to help him find a family member still stuck in her house. He did not consent to any photographs taken. The boat did spring a leak, but only at the end of the trip, after one of the people we pulled out of the water kicked the plug out by accident. The articles you probably based your reports on came from an Australian writer who was angry that Sean had declined an interview.

I don't understand why people like you insist on believing that kind of reporting. Probably because you want to believe it.

Is that a bullet resistant vest he's wearing?

No, I think he's trying to save his career.

Yeah.... that happens all the time.

My theory is that he wanted to go down, get some footage, appear to be a hero, and then make a huge political statement and attempt to leap into a senate race.

What a whore.

He tried to rescue his career, but it couldn't be found....
So sad, couldn't happen to a nicer asshole.

I'm surprised he didn't ask Charlie Sheen or some other actors that have at least played Navy SEALs in a movie, to help him.
