Sean Penn made a memorable late-night appearance on Monday night.
The actor smoked not one, but two cigarettes during his Late Show with Stephen Colbert interview, and admitted to host Stephen Colbert that he took a sedative before. “I’m doing well. You’ve inherited a little of the Ambien I had to take to get to sleep after a red-eye last night,” Penn said at the start of his sit-down.
“So in other words, you’re still a little bit on the Ambien train right now?” Colbert asked before the two-time Oscar winner responded, “A little bit,” as he proceeded to light a cigarette shortly after.
Fans and viewers quickly took notice of Penn’s smoking on TV and shared their reactions on Twitter with many expressing bewilderment.
“Sean Penn is looking a little disheveled while #chainsmoking on #colbert,” one user tweeted.
