Sean Penn Under Fire from Former Costar [Maria Conchita Alonso]
Movies.Yahoo.com ^ | March 29, 2010 | Lindsay Robertson

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.

From CBS-News:
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.'":

She was also in Predator 2 with Castro-loving Danny Glover.

She must not watch the news very often.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I remember when she was basically kidnapped/held hostage by her boyfriend...a Santa Marta member of the North Coast cartel

mid 80s

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

Maria Conchita Alonso worries me:
  1. Born in Cuba, Castro takes over, she leaves.
  2. Moves to Venezuela, Chavez takes over, she leaves.
  3. Moves to the United States, 0bama takes over
  4. Where will she go next?

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
