John C. Reilly's Son Is a Hot E-Boy, and I'm Very Confused

Meet Leo Reilly, the 22-year-old model, musician, and TikToker who looks nothing like his dad.

For most of us raised among slapstick comedy of the 2000s, John C. Reilly is most often associated with his roles in films like Step Brothers or shows like Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!

But the actor, whose resume includes Chicago, Boogie Nights, and What's Eating Gilbert Grape, also has a family to attend to when he's not caught up in on-screen antics. While that's nothing new to write home about, I'm incredibly shocked to discover that Reilly and his wife, fellow actor Alison Dickey, have an alarmingly attractive son. This son is Leo Reilly, a 22-year-old model, TikToker, and pop musician who records under the alias LoveLeo. Backed by a few hundred thousand followers, he's garnered attention lately surrounding his debut single, "BOYFREN." But above all, folks of the Internet are in disbelief that he's from the same gene pool as his funnyman dad.

I'm not saying John C. Reilly is ugly, per se—in fact, he was quite handsome in his youth! But the lack of apparent physical features shared between him and his dangly-earring-and-nail polish-wearing, E-boy son is astounding. It feels as though the two have been plucked from entirely different universes; Leo looks like the Gen Z Freddie Mercury, while I can't see a photo of his father without hearing "Did you touch my drum set?"

But don't be fooled—the two seem tight. Leo shares his love for his pops pretty often on his Instagram, where his sense of humor is also evident. Back in 2008 during the Step Brothers press cycle, John shared that he'd be glad if his kids stuck around the house as adults: "Maybe there will come a time when I'll get tired of them, but I really depend on my kids for company," he told People. "I love every minute of being with them."

As expected, it appears Leo has a healthy sense of humor, too. His Instagram photos are often surreally Photoshopped, and the "BOYFREN" music video is comically quirky. Genetics, man! Crazy stuff!

The Sean Penn drugs war effect unquestionable—because Sean Penn says so, OK?

There is absolutely “no question” that Sean Penn has had an effect on the so-called War on Drugs.

How do we know this?

Well, because Sean Penn says so.

And, it’s not as if Sean Penn is just some insufferable “worthy” Hollywood star with an over-bloated ego and inflated sense of self importance.

So, yeah, if Sean Penn says it’s without question—then, it’s without question, OK?!!!!

As Popdust previously reported, the former Mr. Madonna jetted south of the border last October, for an interview with Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.

The ever-intrepid Penn hiked deep into the Mexican jungle to meet with the infamous drug lord.

Penn’s trip resulted in a momentous eleven-thousand word masterpiece of gloriously over-written prose, published by Rolling Stone in January.

In addition to the Rolling Stone article, Penn was credited with helping bring about the capture, and re-incarceration of El Chapo on January 7.

Although, it turns out, that wasn’t the case at all.

According to the NY Times, Mexican authorities had been tracking and monitoring Guzman for some time, and were planning to recapture him back in October.

However they had to delay the mission after Penn rolled into the jungle— amid fears the actor would be harmed during the capture.

The painfully serious Penn was scathingly mocked for his Rolling Stone ramblings, and criticized for giving a murderous sociopath the publicity he so clearly craved.

Shortly after the interview was published, Penn sat down with Charlie Rose to discuss the Chapo fiasco.

During the sit down, Penn admitted to regretting the way things turned out:

I have terrible regrets.

I have a regret that the entire discussion about this article ignores its purpose, which was to try to contribute to this discussion about the policy in the War on Drugs.

Let's go to the big picture of what we all want. We all want this drug problem to stop.

We all want them—the killings in Chicago to stop. We are the consumer.

Whether you agree with Sean Penn or not, there is a complicity there. And if you are in the moral right, or on the far left, just as many of your children are doing these drugs ...

And how much time have they spent in the last week since this article come [sic] out, talking about that?

One percent? I think that'd be generous.

My article failed.

Let me be clear. My article has failed.

Wait…. WHAAAT?!!!

Major props to Penn for referring to himself in the third person….but, failed?

Sean Penn admitting to have failed at something?!!

This isn’t the Sean Penn we all know and love to hate so well!

But, never fear!

After a brief period of self-reflection, the old Sean is back!

And now, there’s not a failure in sight!

In fact, Penn boasts to the Financial Times about how SUCCESSFUL his article was:

When I said it failed, that turned out not to be the case.

There’s no question there’s ultimately been more conversation about the drug war.

I can’t prove [it’s because of my article].

But I’ve noticed that there’s been more debate.

For Sean Penn spoke, and it came to be; Sean Penn commanded, and it stood firm.

el chapo sean penn actress ElChapo Never Heard Of Sean Penn—Eager To Meet That Hot Actress Though

Turns out El Chapo had never heard of Sean Penn, prior to their clandestine meeting in Mexico last year—he was really eager to meet that hot Latino actress though…

Oh, the indignity!

Mexican Cannibal Drug Cartel Forces Members To Eat Victims’ Hearts

As Popdust previously reported, the ever-pompous and insufferably “worthy” actor jetted south of the border back in October, for an interview with the then-fugitive drug lord, deep in the Mexican jungle—resulting in a momentous eleven-thousand word masterpiece of self-important, over-written prose, published by Rolling Stone at the weekend—in addition to the subsequent capture, and re-incarceration of El Chapo last Friday.

The interview came about courtesy of Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman’s vanity—during his six-months on the run, the Sinaloa cartel chief started developing a biopic about his life, reaching out to a number of actresses and producers in hopes of arranging a “meet and greet” to discuss the project.

How LA’s Fashion District Became A Mexican Drug Cartel Money Laundering Hub

Not surprisingly, Guzman focused in on a smokin’ hot actress as his prime meet and greet choice—Mexican-born-turned-U.S.-citizen, Kate del Castillo—and began courting her in late September, via a number of text messages, in a bid to woo her to the jungle.

According to NBC News

Guzman, who is referred to as “Papa” in the texts, tells del Castillo that he is in Sinaloa, and eager to meet her, so eager in fact, that old Shorty—who Forbes estimates to have a fortune of $4 billion squirreled away somewhere—even vows to stray from the straight and narrow just for her, promising that even though he doesn’t drink, he would be willing to knock back a few shots of tequila, and a couple of glasses of vino, if she brings it with her.

Now, THAT’S an offer that’s hard for any lady to resist.

World Cup Fatal Fanaticism—Tragic Tale Of Colombian Footballer Andres Escobar

However, for some bizarre reason, del Castillo doesn’t immediately jump at the offer to hang out deep in the jungle, miles from anywhere, on her lonesome, with the fugitive “Godfather of the Drug World” who is believed to have directly, or indirectly, murdered literally thousands of people.

Instead, she suggests bringing her old buddy, Sean Penn along for the ride.

Now, you might think that idea would have El Chapo in a Hollywood glitz and glamour-induced joyous frenzy, busting out his autograph book, and dusting off his copy of Shanghai Surprise to enjoy for the 10,000th time, in anticipation of the Oscar winner’s arrival—but, nah, not so much.

Pablo Escobar’s Hippos Wreaking Havoc In Colombian Countryside

Turns out, as evidenced by subsequent texts back and forth between Guzman and his attorney, that the 61-year-old (or 58, no-one is quite sure of the exact year of his birth) had never even heard of the great actor and activist.

Hahaha.

Here’s (an English translation) of those texts:

El Chapo: Who is this actor?

Attorney: Sean Penn

Attorney: He is known for that movie 21 Grams

El Chapo: What year was that movie?

Attorney: I’m checking the date, as I don’t know exactly

El Chapo: OK

Attorney: It was 2003

Attorney: he’s also a political activist

Attorney: Who has been critical of the Bush administration

Oh well, one thing’s for certain, Guzman’s going to have plenty of time on his hands to watch 21 Grams, now that he’s back in the same jail that he escaped from, through an elaborately engineered one mile long secret tunnel, last July.

This time round though, Mexican authorities are taking all precautions to ensure El Chapo doesn’t bribe tunnel his way to freedom yet again—moving him from cell to cell every few days, and keeping him under 24 hour surveillance.

Yeah, good luck with that guys.

sean penn el chapo interview

As we all know by now, actor Sean Penn conducted a secret interview with fugitive drug lord El Chapo, inadvertently leading to the latter's arrest by Mexican authorities. The interview was rushed to publication by Rolling Stone, a momentous ten-thousand word masterpiece of self-important, over-written prose by the humanitarian, litigious and always controversial Mr. Penn.

Obviously you won't want to wade through all that tiresome verbiage so we at Popdust have done the work for you, selecting the Sean Penn El Chapo interview best literary laughs and most cringe-inducing highlights for your enjoyment.

Here is my personal favorite, Sean Penn expounding on his own untimely fart:

At this moment, I expel a minor traveler’s flatulence (sorry), and with it, I experience the same chivalry he’d offered when putting Kate to bed, as he pretends not to notice. We escape its subtle brume, and I join my colleagues inside the bungalow.

Sean Penn Files $10 Million Lawsuit Against ‘Empire’ Creator Lee Daniels!

Here is Sean Penn wondering if our society is as guilty as El Chapo for the problems surrounding drug addiction:

Are we saying that what's systemic in our culture, and out of our direct hands and view, shares no moral equivalency to those abominations that may rival narco assassinations in Juarez? Or, is that a distinction for the passive self-righteous?

Here Sean reviews his own exemplary courage:

I'd offered myself to experiences beyond my control in numerous countries of war, terror, corruption and disaster. Places where what can go wrong will go wrong, had gone wrong, and yet in the end, had delivered me in one piece with a deepening situational awareness (though not a perfect science) of available cautions within the design in chaos.

(Is he talking about his marriage to Madonna?? Who can say.)

Here, Sean aims for a jaunty, Elmore Leonard style tone as he reflects on his own penis:

I throw my satchel into the open back of one of the SUVs, and lumber over to the tree line to take a piss. Dick in hand, I do consider it among my body parts vulnerable to the knives of irrational narco types, and take a fond last look, before tucking it back into my pants.

Finally, Sean meets El Chapo:

Beneath his smile, there is a doubtlessness to his facial expression. A question comes to mind as I observe his face. Both as he speaks as while he listens. What is it that removes all doubt from a man's eyes? Is it power? Admirable clarity? Or soullessness? Soullessness...wasn't it that that my moral conditioning was obliged to recognize in him?

(This is just an excuse for the deep regard Penn feels for the drug lord, which he portrays as a left-wing camaraderie such as he felt for Hugo Chavez)

Salma Hayek—Natural, Fake, Or Who Cares?

Finally, and most poignant, is the little biographical credit Mr. Penn gives himself at the close of the interview:

Actor, writer and director Sean Penn has written from the front lines in Haiti, Iraq, Iran, Venezuela and Cuba. He wishes to dedicate this article to the parents of slain Chicago youth, and to Rodrigo Lara Bonilla, public servant, father and hero.

Viva Sean Penn and his flatulence! Now that's he's been captured, El Chapo will have plenty of time to read Penn's opus in Rolling Stone. Better him than you, trust me!

sean penn empire lawsuit

Sean Penn has filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against Empire co-creator Lee Daniels. complaining that in a new interview, Daniels accused him of hitting women.

In his interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Daniels discusses Empire's Terrence Howard and his current legal problems.

Sean Penn El Chapo Interview—Best Literary Laughs

The quote at issue in Penn's lawsuit is as follows:

[Terrence] ain't done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he's some f—in' demon. That's a sign of the time, of race, of where we are right now in America

Oh no he didn't just call Penn a wife-beater who gets away with it because he's Caucasian!

Robin Wright Has More Orgasms Without Sean Penn—Good To know!

Actually he did, and Sean isn't having it.

Penn's complaint filed in New York by his attorney, states his position:

As a result of Penn's status as a public figure, he has for years been the subject of scandalous, scurrilous, and baseless attacks. But Penn, like any citizen, has a right to defend himself and will no longer tolerate the reckless and malicious behavior of others, who seek to aggrandize themselves or their projects at his expense. Accordingly, and because of Daniels' defamatory statements, Penn brings this action for monetary relief, and to deter Daniels and others from their defamatory actions.

Watch Out Charlize Theron! Sean Penn Is ‘Starting To Show His True Colors’

Uh-oh.

Specifically, in purporting to defend the ongoing legal and related troubles of actor Terrence Howard, the star of Daniels' television show Empire who has reportedly, and publicly, admitted to physically abusing at least one woman and reportedly been arrested approximately five times for violent acts against women, Daniels has falsely asserted and/or implied that Penn is guilty of ongoing, continuous violence against women.

Penn has a point, clearly. Who wants to be lumped in with the notoriously troubled Terrence Howard?

TIL—Kurt Russell’s Face Is Made Of Old Denim, Steven Tyler’s A Giant Ballsack

Now, here comes the best (i.e., juiciest) part of the complaint:

Daniels falsely equates Penn with Howard, even though, while he has certainly had several brushes with the law, Penn (unlike Howard) has never been arrested, much less convicted, for domestic violence, as his ex-wives (including Madonna) would confirm and attest. Nor has Penn admitted to slapping a woman or abusing others (as Howard has also reportedly admitted, reportedly asserting that he was acting in self-defense).

There we have it. 'INCLUDING MADONNA' means we will get to hear Madge speak out in Sean's defense, and as luck would have it, Sean recently attended his ex-wife's concert and she was delighted enough to mention this during a subsequent show.

P. Diddy’s Irrelevant Ass Is Reportedly Planning To Sue The Creators of ‘Empire’

I know I would pay $10 million to get Sean and Madonna together again! Can Lee Daniels arrange this somehow? They're just so right together!

And like Madonna,  Sean Penn is an icon, as he states in item 10 in his complaint:

10. Sean Penn is an American icon.
