London: Hollywood star Sean Penn lost half of his USD 123 million fortune in his divorce from actress Robin Wright.

The Oscar winning actor, whose stormy 14-year marriage ended in July, spoke about the split while doing charity work in earthquake-ravaged Haiti, reported a daily.

The `Milk` star said that he wanted to work for charity full time, but has practical issues.

"I got practical issues. I just got taken for one half of everything I had in the divorce, so it`s not like I don`t have to work," said the 50-year-old.

The former couple have a teenage son and daughter.
