BUENOS AIRES (BHN) – Actor Sean Penn attended a candlelight vigil in Bolivia Monday for the health of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez who is in Cuba undergoing his fourth cancer surgery.
“He’s one of the most important forces we’ve had on this planet,” said Penn. “I wish him nothing but that great strength and rigidity he has shown me over and over and over again – hell, I’m surprised I can still walk! But seriously, I do it in love.”
Penn’s comments did little to discredit rumors that the two men may have enjoyed something closer than a friendship.
