Sean Penn to miss Cannes premiere of `Fair Game`

New York: Hollywood actor Sean Penn will miss the premiere of his new film ‘Fair Game’ at the ongoing 63rd Cannes International Film Festival to testify at a US Senate committee about the mess in Haiti, says his publicist.

The Oscar winner is instrumental in ensuring many of the devastated nation`s people receive aid following the earthquake, which killed hundreds of thousands of citizens in January, reports

He will give evidence to a Senate committee in Washington later this week to detail the destruction he witnessed in the country - leaving him unable to make Cannes for the glamorous premiere of his new movie.

In "Fair Game", he plays the husband of CIA agent Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts).
