Sean Penn’s MSNBC appearance is a total 2020 mood.
The actor literally rolled out of bed for his interview on “Morning Joe”, prompting some hilarious reaction to his unkempt, just-out-of-bed appearance on Twitter.
Penn virtually stopped by the morning show, which typically runs from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m ET, to discuss his nonprofit, CORE, which is working to provide free COVID-19 tests around Los Angeles and elsewhere in the United States.

While Penn’s background was tidy enough, his hair and his wrinkled t-shirt are what had people talking.
Viewers and MSNBC hosts alike loved Penn’s appearance, even contributor Stephanie Rhule tweeted that the star’s interview was “everything.”
Sean Penn on @Morning_Joe is everything right now…except I’m not sure I can handle the fact that he is 60

Penn then joked about his “wild” hair:
If you think my hair goes wild on Morning Joe when hacked by Russians (allegedly), you should see how much wilder it goes when peeps donate to @COREResponse. You really should:). https://t.co/heA00y9EN4 @MSNBC @Morning_Joe

Penn’s tweet referenced Russia’s alleged high-profile hack, which saw multiple federal agencies targeted in a cyber-attack.
The actor previously posted:
This (allegedly) Russian hack is going to impact our lives in ways we can’t yet imagine. Never a more important time for Americans to find common ground. It’s time for Congress to lead by example.
