Last nigh, Rolling Stone magazine published an interview with Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán Loera, conducted by Hollywood actor Sean Penn. Mexican actress Kate del Castillo was also present at the meeting, which took place last September 28. Penn later made a detailed narration of the events for the magazine, and recalled a 7-hour conversation with the drug lord who was absolutely unapologetic and seemed very much at ease while talking to the actor. In addition, Guzmán also dedicated a video interview to del Castillo and Penn. Here are 10 revelations the kinpin told the actor:

  1. He’s not a drinker: "I don't usually drink," he says, "but I want to drink with you."
  2. He would like to invest his money: “[Guzmán] would aspire to the energy sector, but that his funds, being illicit, restrict his investment opportunities
  3. He gets his money laundered by corporations in Mexico and abroad: “He notes with delighted disdain several [companies] through which his money has been laundered, and who take their own cynical slice of the narco pie.”
  4. He knows he is the biggest drug lord: “I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world. I have a fleet of submarines, airplanes, trucks and boats.”
  5. He jokes about Trump: El Chapo smiles, ironically saying, "Ah! Mi amigo!"
  6. He faces very few difficulties dealing around the world: "Of all the countries and cultures with whom you do business, which is the most difficult?” asked Penn. Smiling, he shakes his head and says an unequivocal "None.”
  7. He met Pablo Escobar: “Did you know Pablo Escobar?” asked Penn. “Yes, I met him once at his house. Big house,” Guzmán answered.
  8. He’s close with his mom: “All the time. I hoped we would meet at my ranch and you could meet my mother. She knows me better than I do. But something came up and we had to change the plan,” Guzmán told Penn.
  9. He’s interested in Hollywood: "He is interested in the movie business and how it works," Penn said.
  10. He wanted to know if people in the U.S. were interested in him: Guzmán laughed when Penn told him that the even Fusion channel was airing a documentary about him, “Chasing El Chapo.”
