Mexican actress Kate Del Castillo is now accusing actor Sean Penn of using her as “bait” to lure notorious drug lord El Chapo out for an interview.
The bombshell actress made the claim during a recent episode of ‘Red Table Talk.’
As Fox News reports:
Del Castillo was present for a meeting between Penn and the kingpin in 2015 for a documentary or film the actress intended to make about Guzman’s life. Months after the interview took place, Rolling Stone published Penn’s interview with Guzman.
Speaking on “Red Table Talk: The Estefans” on Facebook Watch, del Castillo faulted Penn for putting her and her loved ones in danger. She also said the situation upended her life as she knew it, leaving her with financial issues and anxiety.
“He used me as bait and then he never protected me — and risked my life, my parents’ life, my sister’s life and everybody surrounding me,” del Castillo told Gloria Estefan, her daughter Emily Estefan and her niece Lily Estefan…
“He’s an a–hole,” the actress said. “He just put it there to sparkle a little bit of his stupid story. There was never a checkpoint. I hated him for that.”
Penn has been a long time critic of President Trump, repeatedly tweeting out his disdain for him:
Ok, ok. So he’s willing to send hundreds of thousands of Americans to the slaughter house of Covid 19, but, remember: he will be pardoning a turkey on Thanksgiving. Credit where credit is due.

In the early 80s, Roy Cohen invited a male prostitute to his home to sodomize him. The young man recognized Cohen & asked, “But, Mr. Cohen, don’t you have AIDS?” To which Cohen allegedly replied, “Shut up and pull your pants down.” Cohen was Donald Trump’s close friend & mentor.

Republican leaders have given themselves a lot of slack as they’ve fallen into the “party of Trump.” The reality is that they are the party of Putin. Trump is just the brand. He’s the salesman, the vessel, who sold them prurience as patriotism.
