The Daily Beast: Stars Who Perform for Dictators

4 of 10

Kevin Spacey, Danny Glover, Sean Penn, and Hugo Chavez

Hugo Chavez may not be considered a dictator, so maybe that's why Hollywood is so fond of him? The leftist Venezuelan president has had his fair share of Hollywood visitors, including Kevin Spacey, Danny Glover, and Sean Penn. Spacey and Chavez did not speak about their meeting, but reportedly Chavez and Glover agreed to make a movie called Toussaint about the Haitian slave who led Haiti's overthrow of colonialism. Penn and Chavez discussed a number of topics, including politics and President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize, and also whether Penn would film a movie in Venezuela. The meeting must have gone well, Penn later railed on Real Time With Bill Maher about the portrayal of Chavez in American media, suggesting prison time for journalists who call Chavez a dictator.
