Los Angeles — Sean Penn says much of the spirit of the #MeToo movement is to "divide men and women."

Penn appeared on Monday in an interview with the co-star of the new Hulu show The First on NBC's Today show. Natascha McElhone said her character is informed by the movement.

Penn disagreed. The two-time Oscar winner says he's "very suspicious of a movement that gets glommed onto in great stridency and rage and without nuance."

Penn added that he thinks "it's too black and white." He says it's "really good to just slow down."
