Who knew…Sean Penn was conducting a secret interview with legendary Mexican druglord El Chapo before he was caught this week in a gun battle. But did Penn’s interview for Rolling Stone get El Chapo caught 6 months after he broke out of prison? Maybe according to the AP. It all happened when Joaquin Guzmán aka El Chapo reached out to producers to make a biographical film on his life.
Back in October the men met in a Mexican jungle and for hours they talked. “I take no pride in keeping secrets that may be perceived as protecting criminals, nor do I have any gloating arrogance at posing for selfies with unknowing security men,” Penn wrote in the article. “But…this will be the first interview El Chapo had ever granted outside an interrogation room, leaving me no precedent by which to measure the hazards.”
And El Chapo even gloats on his status as a drug lord. “El Chapo sticks to an illicit game (drugs), proudly volunteering, ‘I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world. I have a fleet of submarines, airplanes, trucks and boats,” Penn writes.
On a side note, Madiann showed off her love for ex-hubby at the Help Haiti Home charity gala in Beverly Hills, California “I want to say Sean, I love you, from the moment that I laid eyes on you,” she said according toVariety, adding “I just wish you’d stop smoking cigarettes.”
