Kate del Castillo Sean Penn

The Mexican beauty helped orchestrate Penn's top secret meeting with the crime boss, real name Joaquin Guzman, last year (15), while he was on the run from authorities, after befriending the crime boss over a possible movie biopic.

Del Castillo thought the Oscar winner was genuinely interested in helping her get a film off the ground, and she maintains she had no idea Penn was actually planning to interview El Chapo for a Rolling Stone magazine expose about the war on drugs. The piece was subsequently published a day after El Chapo was recaptured by authorities in January (16).

Del Castillo recently gave her first in-depth interview about the whole controversy to the New Yorker magazine, slamming claims Penn made to the same publication about informing the actress of his intentions.

The star is currently being investigated for money laundering, and reports indicate the allegations stem from her links to El Chapo, real name Joaquin Guzman, who was recaptured by authorities in January (16) after spending six months on the run, a day before Rolling Stone published Penn's article about his meeting with the crime boss.

Last week (ends07Feb16), Mexican Attorney General Arely Gomez revealed "a kind of summons had been issued" for del Castillo to testify, but on Tuesday (02Feb16), she filed a writ of amparo in a bid to prevent any future arrests by Mexican authorities, citing potential violations of the Mexican Constitution.

The 43-year-old also filed a suit against Gonzalez, claiming he is leaking information about her to gain political standing following the embarrassment of not being able to track down an escaped convict.

Penn flew to the Mexican jungle with del Castillo last year (Oct15) after she arranged for the movie star to interview Guzman at his hide-out for a Rolling Stone magazine article, which was published earlier this month (Jan16) - just after the escaped convict had been recaptured.
