Sean Penn and technology don’t get along very well.
The “Milk” star was on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday night, and talked all about his process for writing books and screenplays.
He comes up with ideas at night, he told Kimmel, and will then put them into his notes app. “It’s one of the few things I know how to do on my phone,” he explained.
Penn then revealed that the next day he’ll have his assistant put everything onto a laptop because he doesn’t actually know how to use one.
“I’ve never touched one,” Penn said, to Kimmel’s surprise.
Penn also addressed the essay he wrote in honour of “A Star is Born” ahead of the Oscars.
Talking to Kimmel, the actor praised the movie for focusing completely on the love between two people while there is so much divisiveness in the world.
“If people at large don’t respond to this,” he said of his experience seeing an early cut of the film, “I will realize… that I’m obsolete to the culture.”
