Skip to comments.Sean Penn Under Fire from Former Costar [Maria Conchita Alonso]

Sean Penn's costar in the 1988 cop drama "Colors" has written an impassioned open letter to the actor about recent remarks Penn made praising Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez.
Actor Maria Conchita Alonso penned the letter, titled "An Open Letter to Sean Penn," on the website Newsbusters [Newsbusters link]. In it, she expresses her disappointment at Penn's statements made on the March 5 episode of HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher." On the panel-based talk show, Penn praised the Venezuelan president, saying Chavez had been elected in "14 of the most transparent elections in the globe, and been elected democratically." Conchita Alonso, who was born in Cuba 52 years ago but raised in Venezuela, begs to differ.

Penn Hangs Again With Pal Chavez:
Sean Penn Applauds as Venezuela's Chavez Bashes Bush:
From National Public Radio (NPR):
August 29, 2006
"Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been visiting countries such as China, Iran and Russia as part of an effort to build a 'strategic alliance' of interests not beholden to the United States. He considers the United States his arch enemy.":
July 29, 2006
"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":
Obama, Chavez shake hands at Americas Summit:
I like Maria Conchita Alonso. She was good in The Running Man.
Penn and Maria Conchita Alonso
good for her...
Thanks. I knew I forgot something! :)
Hollywood Liberals just can’t help themselves. They fall in love with any murderous dictator who comes down the pike.
Jeff Spicoli strikes again.
What does SHE know? She only grew up there. s/
She was also in Predator 2 with Castro-loving Danny Glover.
She must not watch the news very often.
Code Pink 'Bundles' for Barack, 4/14/2008
"The co-founder of the radical anti-war group Code Pink [Jodie Evans] has bundled more than $50,000 for Sen. Barack Obamas presidential campaign, and pro-troops groups are demanding that he return the money."

She still looks good.
Sean Penn needs the crap kicked out of him.
Pac-man Sean Penn has to be the biggest imbecilic person in Hollywood and that’s saying something.
If you would kick it all out of Sean Penn there’d probably be enough to provide fertilizer for the state of Texas.

“Sean Penn needs the crap kicked out of him.”
You mean every day, right?
I’m glad to see someone in the entertainment industry speak out about this jackass and his love for Marxist dictators.
I wonder what goes through the minds of people like Sean Penn? How can they possibly believe the things they do? It seems like some form of insanity.
F*** you, pac man.
Must be something in their Perrier...
Did you know that Texas is my home state or was that just a figure of speech? LOL.
Sean Penn = Useful Idiot
Penn and Tom Hanks need some schooling. The American people gave them their living and all they do is piss on the country that made them. I can almost forgive Sean Penn because his dad was a communist. But Hanks came from meager beginnings. They’d be fertilizer in any other country.
I remember that she was good in the movie Moscow On The Hudson in 1984 with Robin Williams, her first English movie... also Yakov Smirnoff's (Smirnov) first movie.
sierra hull is much greater than Sean Penn.
I met Maria at a party for the JLo Marc Anthony movie. Very bright woman and committed to fighting Hugo.
In fact, her brother, Robert, fights Hugo from the underground of Venezuela and has a very high price on his head.
I really enjoyed meeting her.
You should see her in person. She is just beautiful.
I remember when she was basically kidnapped/held hostage by her boyfriend...a Santa Marta member of the North Coast cartel
Mono Abello...he got extradited and then served a long sentence but traded up testifying against Medellin cartel and Sandinista perico transhipments
Mono had a 5 acre walled compound in the Rododero section of Santa Marta...and a neat little island in the Exumas ..not as well known as Normans Cay but enuff to get La Dea on his ass
And Harvey Milk was Pac Man 2 (or too).
Ayyyyyyyyy babi! much gusto la Cubana Venezuelana Lindissima de America muy fuerte!
Sorry -It is just came out in Spanish when I saw her.
Personally, I think it's an as yet unidentified chromosome mutation.
LOL. She is a nice girl and her brother is in hiding and fights against Hugo, who has place a very large reward on Robert’s head.
Besides is to established here.... Wait...I see your point. LOL
