In a first-person article published by Kate del Castillo in the Mexican weekly newsmagazine Proceso about her secret meeting with Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, the Mexican actress said that the movie about the life of the leader of the Sinaloa cartel would have compensated victims of organized crime.

She added that El Chapo praised her for the idea with the following words: “My friend you have a great heart. It sounds good to me.”

Del Castillo said she only met secretly with "El Chapo" for a project to document his life in a movie and denied suggestions she has received any money from the drug lord.

She explained how she was contacted by the capo's attorneys, the discussions leading up to the encounter and ultimately her October 2015 meeting with Guzmán and American actor Sean Penn in a remote area of northeastern Mexico.

In the letter published in Proceso Del Castillo denounced that the “eminently journalistic” project has been “demonized”, using a tone similar to the one she used in her interview with The New Yorker magazine, published two days ago, the first she had given to any medium about the meeting with the drug lord.

Del Castillo added that Mexican authorities have used her story as a smoke screen to hide the true problems and added that she has nothing to hide and that she will testify when she has the right legal guarantees.
