Sean Penn Says His El Chapo Meeting Was a 'Failure' (Video)

Sean Penn Says His El Chapo Meeting Was a 'Failure' (Video)

Sean Penn ducks his head into a car while leaving Giorgio Baldi after dinner on Thursday night (January 14) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The following morning, CBS This Morning aired an excerpt from the 55-year-old actor’s 60 Minutes interview about his famous meeting with Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

“Let me be clear. My article has failed,” Sean told Charlie Rose about his meeting and subsequent Rolling Stone piece. “The entire discussion abut this article ignores its purpose which was to try to contribute to this discussion about the policy to the war on drugs.”

Sean also said that his meeting did not lead to El Chapo‘s capture.

“There is this myth about the visit that we made, my colleagues and I with El Chapo, that it was — as the Attorney General of Mexico is quoted — ‘essential’ to his capture,” Sean said. “We had met with him many weeks earlier … on October 2nd, in a place nowhere near where he was captured.”
