Republic Of Hollywood: Hugo Chavez Meets Sean Penn

by | 2nd, August 2007

POLITICS is not just showbiz for ugly people. Politics is entertainment with the beautiful people on tap. Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez is chatting to Sean Peann about Iraq. Do you think Chavez has mistaken him for Bono, Mr G9?

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has praised Sean Penn for his critical stance against the war in Iraq, saying the two chatted by phone and soon plan to meet in person.

Chavez said Penn traveled to Venezuela this week wanting to learn more about the situation in the country and walked around some of Caracas’ poor barrios on his own.

“Welcome to Venezuela, Mr. Penn. What drives him is consciousness, the search for new paths,” Chavez said Wednesday in a televised speech. “He’s one of the greatest opponents of the Iraq invasion.”
