On second thought, Sean Penn wishes he hadn't bothered with the whole "El Chapo" thing.
The Oscar-winning actor created a sensation earlier this month with his Rolling Stone interview of Joaquin Guzman, the Mexican drug lord known as "El Chapo." Some speculated that Penn's interview may have helped Mexican authorities recapture Guzman after he had famously escaped from prison.
But in a prerecorded "60 Minutes" interview airing Sunday, Penn says he now has a "terrible regret" about the whole incident.
"Let me be clear: My article has failed," Penn tells CBS newsman Charlie Rose.
Penn says he was hoping that his article would inspire a national discussion about the war on drugs.
