Sean Penn made a smoky appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote his book. The actor told the host Monday he had taken a sedative “to get to sleep after a red-eye flight” and Penn lit a cigarette.
The two-time Academy Award winner described his novel, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, as “the conversation once a year with the drunken uncle.”
Penn lit a second cigarette and Colbert asked him to consider quitting. Penn said it was “job security for oncologists.”
Meanwhile, Penn told comedian Marc Maron in a podcast that he and his ex-wife Robin Wright “don’t have a lot of conversation.”
Penn said they “have very separate relationships” with their children, 26-year-old Dylan and 24-year-old Hopper. The couple divorced in 2010.

stephen colbert Why did you allow Sean Penn to smoke on your show? We are appalled that you would condone his smoking on your show. You and your crew must know that doing so was in violation of the NYC Smokefree Air Act and exposed hundreds in the theatre to secondhand smoke.— Phil Konigsberg (@PhilKonigsberg) March 27, 2018
