Sean Penn Smokes While On Ambien For Bizarre 'Late Show' Interview

Award-winning actor Sean Penn appears Monday on

Just as surreal was his recent interview on The Last Show with Stephen Colbert, where he talked about having just taken an Ambien and lights up a smoke not once but twice (even after being asked by Colbert to not smoke).

The actor told the host Monday that he was still feeling the effects of an Ambien he took to "get to sleep after a red-eye flight".

Like a large number of you, Stephen Colbert watched Anderson Cooper's interview with porn star Stormy Daniels Sunday on "60 Minutes".

Penn lit a second cigarette and Colbert asked him to consider quitting.

Miguna was at Odinga's side when the opposition leader took an oath as the "people's president" at the mock inauguration. Odinga came to the airport on Monday night to attempt to lobby for Miguna to be admitted to the country, Orengo said.

Another said, "Weird. Sean Penn is smoking a cigarette on Colbert tonight".

Penn also elicited laughs when he pulled out a pack of cigarettes and started smoking, which is a major taboo for television networks today. He told the actor, "Please don't smoke anymore".

Many responded negatively to Penn's appearance online.

The actor - er, should we now say actor-on-his-way-out? - discussed why he no longer finds joy in acting, and it has to do with that collaboration element of it all. "And I increasingly don't play well with others and so it becomes less enjoyable". The somewhat rehabilitated bad boy of Hollywood smoked cigarettes during his interview on the show as he promoted his new book, a novel called "Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff". Penn's response? "This is job security for oncologists". In writing the novel, Penn got to work in solitude. "Sean Penn is looking a little disheveled while chainsmoking on colbert [sic]" one Twitter user wrote. A known activist, he praised the high schoolers from Parkland, Florida, who organised last weekend's March for Our Lives. "You feel like there are reasonable people who have been on the other side of this conversation who are gonna listen to these kids".
