Sean Penn was officially made an ambassador at large for Haiti at the Cinema for Peace benefit on Saturday night, which benefited the Oscar winner's J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
The event raised $5 million, and stars like Demi Moore, Melanie Griffith, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Orlando Bloom, Mel Gibson, James Gandolfini and Hilary Swank attended and made generous donations.
During the fundraiser, Penn was offered the job by Haitian foreign minister Laurent Lamothe, and Penn gladly accepted, adding that it would be a nice "change being called 'Hey you [expletive]' to 'Hey Mr. Ambassador.'"
