Sean Penn: Don't know why El Chapo agreed for interview

Mexican actress Kate del Castillo, who met with Joaquin "El Chapo" (Shorty) Guzman late a year ago while he was a still a fugitive, will be summoned by Mexican authorities to testify about her links to the powerful drug lord, a federal government source told EFE Monday.

"My article failed", Penn told 60 Minutes' co-host Charlie Rose, according to CBS News. "Let's go to the big picture of what we all want".

Sean Penn says El Chapo interview failed to shed light on "puritanical and prosecutorial" drug policies.

Rolling Stone published the 10,000-word story on January 9, one day after El Chapo was recaptured by Mexican authorities. After finding the time to orchestrate a biopic about himself and have a sit down interview with Sean Penn, the wanted drug kingpin has reportedly squeezed in some time to undergo surgery for erectile dysfunction. "It has been an incredible hypocrisy and an incredible lesson in just how much they don't know and how disserved we are".

"Well, nobody found him before they did", Penn added. We're not smarter than DEA or the Mexican intelligence.

Penn described his writing as "experiential journalism".

She and Penn are now rumored to be under investigation over potential wrongdoings by the Mexican government. As a result, Penn said he considers his article a failure.

"When you get the story that every journalist in the world wanted, there's a lot of green-eyed monsters", said Penn, who believes Guzman gave him access because he is not a professional journalist. And it occurs to me that often, because we want to simplify the problem, and we want to look at a black hat and put our resources into focusing on the bad guy and na- and- and- ju- and I understand that.

"So as far as you know", Rose asked the actor, "you had nothing to do and your visit had nothing to do with his recapture?" In fact, the New York Times reports that "El Chapo" had asked his lawyer, "What's the name of this actor again?" when he said a Mexican television star approached him about being interviewed by Penn.

"I was baffled at his will to see us", Penn said of El Chapo, noting that he isn't sure he isn't in danger. We are the consumer.
