Sean Penn faces questioning over El Chapo links

Sean Penn was a very hot topic of conversation at the Golden Globes, despite the actor choosing not to attend the awards ceremony. Penn’s decision to conduct a clandestine interview with Mexican drug kingpin El Chapo Guzmán shocked Hollywood and the world’s media.

Penn conducted an interview with Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman for Rolling Stone magazine and wrote an essay. It was published late Saturday, just one day after the drug lord’s recapture in Mexico.

Mexican authorities said Penn’s contacts with Guzman helped them track the fugitive down — even if he slipped away from an initial raid on the hideout where the actor apparently met the criminal in October.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Unit (DEA) took to social media to tweet their delight at El Chapo’s recapture:

Guzmán could face extradition to the U.S.
