Sean Penn & Oliver Stone Mourn Loss Of Hugo Chavez

Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez died on Tuesday, and while he had many detractors in his own country and in the U.S., there is one place where he found support — Hollywood.

Well, part of Hollywood…

Sean Penn was a well-known Chavez supporter who paints the man with a heroic brush in his statement of mourning. He says:

"Today the people of the United States lost a friend it never knew it had. And poor people around the world lost a champion.

I lost a friend I was blessed to have. My thoughts are with the family of President Chavez and the people of Venezuela."

But like the headline says, Sean isn't the only Hollywood heavyweight who is mourning the leader's loss. Filmmaker Oliver Stone says:

"I mourn a great hero to the majority of his people and those who struggle throughout the world for a place. Hated by the entrenched classes, Hugo Chavez will live forever in history.

My friend, rest finally in a peace long earned"

We may not have felt the same way about Chavez, but it always hurts to see how someone's death has affected friends and loved ones.

We can only hope all those in mourning will find their own peace in this.

    Amazing that two people that know nothing about this man elevate him so that they can make themselves seem more important. Hugo Chavez pocketed millions of dollars by taking away from the businesses and making everything government owned. In the process, he created a system of killing, payoffs and bribes. Funny that they say that he "helped" the poor. It sounds more to me like he exploited them to make himself rich. And, these two morons celebrate him. Sick!

    SEAN PENN and OLIVER : I WILL OFFICIALLY THROW AWAY ANY MOVIE OF YOURS I HAVE IN MY LIBRARY !!! Maybe I'll keep Scarface since that really is a PACINO classic. LOL You call him a friend ?? Yeah a friend that probably gave you oil money to finace a project of yours. I truly can't believe that these two morons would put out statements like these when they themselves have lived the kind of life that HUGO so strongly opposed for his country. His goal was to get rid of the rich so he could run the country like FIDEL ran Cuba!! But of course keep all the OIL money to himself and his team of crooks working beside him. Do we call that a life for the Venezuelian population ?? HE was a Dictator that jailed and destroyed anyone that spoke against his HORRIBLE RULING WAYS !! The two of you should give up YOUR HIGH LIVING and go live in the BARRIOS in Venezuela for a few months to truly experience the DAMAGE "YOUR BUDDY" caused. Chavez was no HERO ….. he was no different than OSAMA or KADAFI. Thousands, thousands and thousands that have suffered and been killed under CHAVEZ's ruling. Sean … all your latest movies have sucked and that gangster movie was a joke !!!! And well OLIVER that POT movie was a disaster !! Guess the two of you lost your MOJO and are now trying to get some publicity by speaking in favor of a DICTATOR.

    Chavez attempted to pass a vote to appoint him as leader of the country for life. The student movement stopped the vote. He was just another dictator.

    You Perez can keep your Obama and his drones and Wall Street ass licking, Bush with his negative IQ and bloodlust. You and your morons (the most intellectual of whom get their "news" from CNN instead of Fox - have any of you ever read a decent newspaper much less a book?). Chavez has millions of people mourning him - primarily those that he promised to help. Why? Because he delivered on his promises. RIP Hugo Chavez.

    LOL. Just typical. We did move the fuck out of America and we're so fucking lucky to have been able to get away from all the damaged, brainwashed, idiotic, angry gun toting obese mutherfuckers that populate your great land. You fucking keep it you psychopath. Name two things that Chavez did? Can't right? You hate him because your masters over at Fox/CNN told you to. Land of the free, right? Fucker.
