Actress calls Sean Penn 'communist ***hole'
An actress and former international beauty pageant queen had a heated run-in with actor Sean Penn at Los Angeles International Airport recently, in which she says he called her a pig and she responded by calling him a communist. Maria Conchita Alonso, who is known for her role in the movies "The Running Man" and "Predator 2," was picking up her wheelchair-bound mother at LAX when she noticed fellow actor Sean Penn standing by the same luggage carousel. Alonso had not interacted with Penn since she wrote an open letter to him in March 2010 criticizing him for supporting socialist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. She says the meeting was meant to happen when the pair were waiting for information on Penn's and Alonso's mother's lost luggage. 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. The actress says the exchange of words in the airport caused a scene where others were looking on with amusement or shock. "The second time I called him a communist, I said 'You're a communist a**hole," Alonso said. She added that she later regretted using profanity, but is not sorry. "I'm not apologizing for calling him a communist because that is what he is," she told WMAL, adding that it's "sad" because Penn is "an amazing actor."...more
