Sean Penn Tells 'Oprah's Next Chapter' Helping Haiti Has Given His Life Purpose (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

On "Oprah's Next Chapter" (Sun., 9 p.m. EST on OWN) Oprah Winfrey visited Haiti with Sean Penn.

Together they explored how Haiti is recovering from the catastrophic earthquake that hit in 2010, and Penn opened up about how working in the country helped him heal after his divorce from Robin Wright.

The actor, who recently said he has dedicated his life to the relief efforts in Haiti, said that his humanitarian work there had given his life a new purpose.

An emotional Penn applauded his ex-wife's participation in the relief effort. He said he had "an enormous amount of respect" for Wright, who spent a week in Haiti volunteering alongside their son Hopper and also made a generous donation to his organization.
