Actress Maria Bello is honored in Haiti

Haiti’s President Michel Martelly honored Maria Bello on Tuesday for her advocacy work on behalf of the country’s women. The star of ‘‘A History of Violence’’ was named goodwill ambassador for women at a special ceremony on the grounds of the National Palace in Port-au-Prince. Bello, cofounder of women’s grassroots group We Advance, will join the ranks of other Hollywood celebrities in Haiti who have received recognition for their charity work after the quake, including actor Sean Penn.
