Celebs show philanthropic side at Haiti benefit

BEVERLY HILLS, California (AP) -- While many stars are awash in the gifts and parties of Golden Globes weekend, a few used their privilege to benefit Haiti -- and they were rewarded with an intimate performance by U2.

Bette Midler, Michael Douglas, Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron, Piers Morgan, Chelsea Handler, Sarah Silverman, Kathryn Bigelow and Emma Thompson were among the guests at Sean Penn's third annual Help Haiti Home benefit, which raised more than $5 million for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization. The dinner party at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, included a surprise performance by U2-- the band's first in four years.
