Veteran actor Sean Penn has shocked audiences after casually sparking up a cigarette during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The late-night host also put in a plug to get the actor to lay off the cigarettes.

Stephen Colbert has a habit of supplying his Late Show interviewees with booze. Stephen asked, to which Sean responded, "a little bit", before pulling out a cigarette and lighting it up on stage.

"The greatest thing that an actor can bring to the party is to play well with others - it's the collaboration", Penn explained.

Two-time Oscar victor Sean Penn is hitting the press circuit to promote his novel, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.

"It's an insane, salacious tale about a sitting president", Colbert said, "and the least surprising story I have ever heard".

When asked about his motivations for writing the book, Penn said it was a kind of therapy for him living through the Trump era.

Colbert remained skeptical, though, and on Monday night got Penn to admit that he had lied. "And I increasingly don't play well with others and so it becomes less enjoyable".

Colbert riffed with the star about how he could decipher "Sean Penn on Ambien" from "Sean Penn not on Ambien" and the first giveaway was when Penn took out a cigarette and lit up.

"I've interviewed you before".

Did that clear things up?

Sean Penn and ex-wife Robin Wright were married from 1996 until 2010, and Penn opened up about his ex while speaking with comedian Marc Maron on his "WTF" podcast, revealing that he and Penn don't have a lot of communication these days. "I'm on that train with you".

Penn praised the students and survivors of the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who organized the March for Our Lives protest in Washington D.C. on Saturday. "You feel like there are reasonable people who have been on the other side of this conversation who are gonna listen to these kids".
