Lee Daniels Apologizes to Sean Penn, $10 Million Defamation Suit Dropped

Lee Daniels has issued a public apology to Sean Penn after comparing him to Terrence Howard with regards to domestic violence issues.

“I am so sorry that I have hurt you, Sean, and I apologize and retract my reckless statements about you,” Lee said in a statement (via Deadline). “How thoughtless of me. You are someone I consider a friend, a brilliant actor and true Hollywood legend and humanitarian.”

In addition to the statement, Lee has donated an undisclosed amount to Sean‘s organization, J/P HRO.

“I accept Lee’s heartfelt apology and appreciate the sincerity with which it was delivered,” Sean added. “I also accept and appreciate his generous donation to J/P HRO, which will have a transformative effect on the lives of those we serve in Haiti.”
