This is crazy — but pretty darn inneresting, too.
Sean Penn spoke to Charlie Rose for an interview that will air on CBS' 60 Minutes on Sunday night, and it's all about the actor's meeting with Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, the notorious Mexican drug kingpin.

In the interview, Penn reveals that he was certain it wasn't his article in Rolling Stone that led to El Chapo's capture.
In fact, Penn believes that the Mexican government has been scapegoating him to the drug cartel because law enforcement officials were so embarrassed Penn found the drug lord months before he was recaptured after escaping prison in July!
Check out a teaser clip of the interview (below), shown on CBS This Morning on Friday, to see if Sean is scared for his life:
