Seth Rogen Discusses A Groundbreaking New Concept: A Movie Wife That Likes To Have Fun

Seth Rogen On Movie Marriages

“My wife read the ["Neighbors"] script. She’s a writer. She’s one of the people who was like, ‘This isn’t how it would be. We get along, I want to have fun too…’ And then as we started talking about it, that actually became the most exciting idea of the movie to us, that we could portray a couple where the wife is just as fun-loving and irresponsible as the guy, and they get along really well. In a comedy, that’s almost non-existent. An actual healthy couple that really likes each other.”

Seth Rogen tells Studio 360 how his new movie, “Neighbors,” ended up defying the “nagging, super serious wife” trope and making Rose Byrne’s character just as fun-loving and misbehaving as her hubby. Turns out we can thank Seth’s wife, Lauren Miller (cowriter of the hilarious “For A Good Time Call…” BTW), for shaking some sense into the dudes who wrote the original script. Seth also had some really sweet things to say about how his own marriage is nothing like movie marriages:

“In movies they like to portray marriage like, ‘Oh the wife and husband are always arguing and bickering.’ For me and my wife, the easiest part of my life is my marriage. Like if everything was as smooth and easy and fun as my relationship with my wife then I would have a much easier time getting through the day. We really get along and we like the same stuff.”
