Penn, the Oscar-winning movie star, political and humanitarian activist, rebel with many causes, writer and globetrotter, says he took a secret meeting late last year in a Mexican jungle with Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, the fugitive kingpin of the Sinaloa drug cartel and two-time escapee from Mexican jails.

Penn says this in an 11,000-word article, headlined "El Chapo Speaks," published in Rolling Stone late Saturday, complete with a picture of Penn and Guzmán shaking hands and a video of the paunchy-and-short drug lord answering questions in Spanish about his sprawling drug business.
