A little context 1
Kate del Castillo caught El Chapo's attention when she published a long letter in her Twitter account criticizing the Mexican government and saying that as things stood, she trusted more El Chapo than the President and dedicated this two paragraphs to him. According to what Sean Penn wrote in Rolling Stone, a lawyer from El Chapo's team contacted her soon after. They were in talks to develop a Hollywood movie about his life, also she facilitated the meeting between the actor and the drug dealer. Some of the exchanges between them can be read ahead.
Planning their reunion 2
El Chapo: Amiga, so if your bring the wine, I will also drink from yours, since I like tequila and Buchannans, but I t you will drink the tequila that you are bringing [it turned out to be the brand Kate del Castillo owns] and champagne. Let me tell you that I'm not a drinker, but your presence is going to be something beautiful. I really want to meet you. You are the best thing in the world. We will be very good friends. You figure out when you can come back [Kate was in Mexico at that time, but she lives in L.A.]. I hope it's soon, we hope everything can be ready in a week. I will have everything perfect so you won't have even a teeny problem. I would feel awful. Be sure that you will be comfortable. I'll care for you better than I protect my own eyes.
Kate: It moves me so much that you say that you take care of me, nobody has ever taken care of me. Thank you! I have next weekend free.
I dream to see your eyes 3
Kate: You don't know how excited I feel. Thanks to you I'm going to meet you. Thank you for your trust. I've been trying to put together an important team, with real people, respected in Hollywood. I want you to listen to them...But, beside our project, I dream with seeing your eyes, in person. THANK YOU. The most important thing to me is that you are comfortable, without any commitment, and that, after our meeting, you tell me what you really think. I guess I will get instructions about where to go and all the details.
Chapo: Friend, you will go to Sinaloa. Rest assured that everything is fine. I wouldn't invite you otherwise. I will take care of you, you will see it yourself. When you come I will have to drink tequila with you. As I told you I'm not a heavy drinker, but I will drink with you just for the pleasure of your company. Thank you for being such a fine person. You are so beautiful, friend, in every possible way.
El Chapo: Good morning amiga, I'm sorry, I was asleep. Have a good trip from the bottom of my heart. We are talking. I love you.
Kate: Very tired, but I'm here working ... How are you?
El Chapo: Very well amiga, so you couldn't rest. Rest.
Kate: I would love to but I have to eat ... and I don't sleep a lot since I saw you. I'm very excited with our story ... It's true, it's the only thing I think about.
El Chapo: Let me tell you that I'm more excited about you, than about our story, amiga.
Kate: Ha ha. I love to hear that.
