Sean Penn Hosts Star-Studded Benefit in Cannes

Originally posted 05/19/2012 12:00PM

Sean Penn was in a jovial mood Friday night at the Cannes Film Festival where he hosted a benefit for Haiti, which raised about $1.5 million.

The actor and activist hosted a starry affair attended by David Schwimmer, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Diane Kruger, Jessica Chastain, Michelle Rodriguez, Ewan MacGregor, Gerald Butler and Penn's onetime gal pal Petra Nemcova, among others.

At one point Penn joked to the crowd: "I want to ask every woman here to turn to the man next to her and say I won't sleep with you tonight unless you make a big donation."

Two U2 VIP concert tickets and one of Bono's Gretsch guitars fetched 200,000 euros apiece, and three people shelled out $100,000 each to spend three days in Haiti with Penn.

The upbeat evening was a change from Friday afternoon when Penn went on a profanity-laced tirade about how the media and the world has abandoned Haiti in the wake of a devastating earthquake there.

In most competitions, your competitors usually want to see you fail – unless, that is, you are Petra Nemcova.

While the quickstep proved a giant misstep this week for the Dancing with the Stars contestant, her fellow cast members had nothing but glowing praise for the supermodel and tsunami survivor who has dedicated her life to charity work.

"I don't know how to take [her elimination], because I love her," former rival Kirstie Alley told PEOPLE shortly after the announcement of Tuesday night's results. "She's the sweetest, most amazing, bright spirit in the universe."

Nemcova's spirit proved infectious – even at the lowest of times on the show.

In the end, Petra Nemcova was eliminated.

The supermodel was joined in jeopardy Tuesday night by Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke and Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Originally posted 04/19/2011 07:00PM

It was a rough outing in the ballroom for three couples who competed on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.

Kendra Wilkinson, Petra Nemcova and Ralph Macchio each received scores of 22, putting them in a tie for last place.

Nemcova, 31 – who has lasted longer than the four other supermodel competitors on the show in the past – doesn't believe in what is considered "the supermodel curse." So, does she deserve another chance to prove that the supposed curse is wrong?
