i swear, i’m not making this up.
Sean Penn decided that he was going to save the world again…well, maybe not the whole world…just New Orleans, so off he went with a boat and a personal photographer in tow.

but, the boat sprang a leak after Penn apparently forgot to plug a hole in the bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch. Penn was seen frantically bailing water out of the sinking vessel with a red plastic cup.

The motor also failed to start, and those aboard were forced to paddle down the flooded New Orleans street. Asked what he had hoped to achieve in the waterlogged city, the actor replied: “Whatever I can do to help.” The locals were unmoved, and one bystander even taunted the actor: “How are you going to get any people in that thing?”
