Actress Confronts Sean Penn Over His Support for Chavez: ‘You Are a Communist A**Hole!’
The Blaze ^ | Dec. 19, 2011 | Tiffany Gabbay

Posted on 12/19/2011 6:05:36 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Cuban-born, Venezuelan-raised actress Maria Conchita Alonso and actor Sean Penn had a contentious exchange at Los Angeles International airport recently, in which Alonso called Penn a “communist a**hole“ and Penn called Alonso a ”pig.”

Over a year and a half after Alonso penned an open letter to Penn asking him why he supports socialist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, the two met up serendipitously (or not so) at LAX while both were waiting to claim lost luggage.

Alonso, who starred alongside Penn in the 1988 film “Colors,” described the exchange to Steve Malzberg on WMAL.

“I go ‘Hello,’ and he smiles and says, ‘Oh, you lost your bag too?” Alonso told Steve Malzberg on WMAL. “And I’m like, ‘No, my mother (lost her bag).’ And at that moment he recognizes me because he didn’t recognize me before, and he goes, ‘Oh, it’s you.’”

Alonso says she calmly told Penn she wanted to speak with him about the tension over Chavez when Penn blew up at her.

“He goes, ‘I don’t want to talk to you. You speak badly about me. You insult me on TV,” Alonso said.

Alonso says the conversation escalated when Penn accused Alonso’s brother of attempting to assassinate Chavez, which Alonso says is not true.

“So I’m like, ‘You are in favor of Hugo Chavez and [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad.’ Because I also saw a picture of footage from TV where Chavez and Ahmadinejad are together and Sean Penn is next to them. And, you know, he‘s like ’I’ve never said that about Ahmadinejad. You’re a pig.’ And I go to him, ‘And you are a communist, Sean Penn!’”

She was in Running Man and Predator 2. She was hot with a sexy accent. Now that I know she hates Sean Penn, I really like her for her brain now.

“Cuban born” Maybe real world experience trumps some ivory tower theoretical concept. I know one Cuban who barely made it out alive and he makes Rush look like a lefty. Armed to the teeth too.

Looks like there are a lot of fellow Running Man fans in the thread. Fun movie. Good for her to knock Sean Penn.

Met a couple yesterday, who came to the USA 30 years ago, from Poland, and they said Poland thanks the USA for the long hard Cold War, whereby world communism was defeated with few bullets.

They said Polish people love America, Americans, and would like to become the 51st state.

They would be with this lady from Cuba.

Get rid of California and New York First.Then I’d agree with getting rid of the New England States.Besides,The New England States are small change compared to the first two.

Alonso called Penn a “communist a**hole“

He most certainly is and always has been. The only surprise here is that Penn didn't try to punch her. It would fit his personality.

Hell yeah! We kick California, Oregon, Washington, D.C. Maine, Vermont, New York City out of the Union and pick up Poland, Lithuania, Hungary and Sicily

I think trading Freedom Loving Anti Communists and getting rid of our Communists would be mutually beneficial to all.

haaaa I’m listening to that radio clip right now and I just saw this thread!!

She’s great!!

I’m not one to advocate violence in personal relations but I wish she had kicked his a## just so that forever after we could say “Sean Penn was beat up by a girllllll”

Still, it’s good to see someone confront that “communist a###### Sean Penn”

“you’ve been a communist all your life!” [Maria to Sean Penn]

She’s not going to win points with too many pc leftists in Hollywood, though.

I knew an escapee from Cuba, and he loves this country, and he absolutely despises Obama for turning this country into a “mega-Cuba.”

I thought we did that back in the 1890's?

As for the Czech and Slovakia, sure why not? As long as they don't bring any of their communists with them. And Since this thread is about a Latin American, I say we add Chile as well (although since they are a 1st world country with a 1st world economy, unlike so many other south american nations, they are actually solvent, I am not sure they would want to be involved with our S.S. system)

It'll never happen. Sean Penn has WAY TOO MUCH experience beating up women. Madonna, Robin Wright to name two. Who knows how many others?

I mean I can’t stand Sean Penn, but seriously they are going to use some has been washed up actress. At least use someone like Sofia Vegarara who is current and a full fledged actress.

Why? Because all you do is insult instead of having an intelligent conversation. You have NEVER been able to do that. Why???????? Supposedly FREEPERS are smart so I don't know what your problem is. Ignorant people using use insults because they can't discuss the subject. Oh well. Unfortunately for you, you will always be inadequate in intelligence so I will take your insults in stride. You mean zero to me. I was trying to help you change yourself but it is impossible. So you and the old actress can go back to Cuba.

I am done with this thread. I am on to important things like the House is suspending the vote for the taxes.....maybe instead of wasting your time on an entertainment thread, going to an important thread like the House suspending the vote would be more important. This is very small news in the big scheme of things.
