Sean Penn and the Cuban actress Maria Conchita Alonso, who starred opposite each another in the 1998 flick 'Colors', became involved in a furious scuffle in Lax airport's lost luggage area on Sunday (December 18, 2011).
According to Fox News, it all started when Alonso waited to pick her mother up from a Miami flight and spotted the Oscar-winner attempting to get his luggage from an American Airlines section of the airport. The actress said her "heart stopped" when she saw the actor, whom she had written an open letter to condemning his public support of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Stunned onlookers watched on as Alonso strode up to the actor and said "I would like to talk to you", when Penn replied with, "I have nothing to say to you", the actress resorted to yelling, "How can you defend Chavez? You are a communist, Sean Penn. You are a pig! And you are a communist [expletive] Is it great to live the way you do as a communist?". Maria, who spoke with Steve Malzberg on Washington DC radio station Wmal afterwards, said her mother "wanted to clap" but added, "she was in a wheelchair and she had a small dog in her lap". Penn, who was travelling from Haiti where he continues to provide aid support, later said, "I only knew that a hostile woman was nonsensically berating me. I didn't realize it was that actress. I think I worked with her once. But she looks really different. She was uninformed and impolite to all the other passengers".
The duo filmed numerous scenes together in 'Colors', about an inexperienced cop and his rookie partner who patrol the streets of East Los Angeles while attempting to keep gang violence under control.
