Seth Rogen
JGL Shaves His Head
For his new cancer comedy "50/50." Read More »

“I cry during ASPCA commercials, other than that I’m pretty cold-hearted … We tried to make ’50/50′ as honest as we could. Life is funny and sad and even when Will was going through treatment we were still sitting around having the most ridiculous conversations.”

Seth Rogen talks about his new movie “50/50,” about his best friend Will Reiser’s diagnosis with cancer, and answered a reporter’s question about whether he has a soft side. What?!?! Seth cries at ASPCA commercials, too? We are obviously kindred spirits as those commercials make me go through, like, a box of Kleenex a week. [Monsters and Critics]

Seth Rogen Proposed While His Girlfriend Was Almost Naked

“She was in our closet, changing, and she was literally only in her underpants. I’d already kind of started, and I was like ‘Oh man, her boobs are out! That’s not part of the plan!’ I didn’t picture it like this, and I know she didn’t picture it like this. No little girl is like ‘It’ll happen in a closet with my tits out.’ … I figured the only appropriate thing was to place the ring on her nipple.”

Seth Rogen tells Conan O’Brien all about proposing to Lauren Miller. He also let it slip that he has strong opinions about what their wedding centerpieces should look like. [People] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Judd Apatow & Seth Rogen Hate Katherine Heigl Too

Seth Rogen: “['The Ugly Truth'] looks like it really puts women on a pedestal in a beautiful way.”
Judd Apatow: “I hear there’s a scene where she’s wearing… underwear… with a vibrator in it, so I’d have to see if that was uplifting for women.”
Rogen: “I gotta say, it’s not like we’re the only people she said some bats**t crazy things about. That’s kind of her bag now.”

–The star and director of “Funny People” on Katherine Heigl‘s hypocrisy in an interview with Howard Stern. Heigl famously told Vanity Fair that she thought “Knocked Up” (the Apatow film that she starred in alongside Rogen) “painted women as shrews.” Keep reading »

    Don’t See It: Seth Rogen’s Date Rape Movie

    I thought losing weight was to blame for Seth Rogen’s fall from funny. But maybe we never had the same sense of humor to begin with. How else to explain his starring role in “Observe and Report,” which opens today, the extended trailer for which shows his character, Ronnie, a mall cop, having sex with a woman (Brandi, played by Anna Faris) who’s passed out drunk, covered in vomit? This scene has caused quite a bit of controversy, with everyone from The New York Times to Salon’s Broadsheet weighing in on whether the scenario classifies as date rape. (The scene, FYI, is embedded in the trailer, after the jump. Warning: the language in the trailer makes it NSFW.) Rogen says it is not.

    “You can literally feel the audience thinking, like, how the f**k are they going to make this okay? Like, what can possibly be said or done that I’m not going to walk out of the movie theater in the next thirty seconds? … And then she says, like, the one thing that makes it all okay.”

    That one thing? When Rogen stop manically pumping away, Brandi, vomit oozing out of her mouth, comes to, and says, “Why are you stopping motherf**ker?” The Times agrees that this is her giving “permission,” writing in their review, “He forces himself on a makeup-counter saleswoman after a date of heavy drinking and drug use. (Before the scene is over she indicates that she had given her consent.)”

    An Open Letter To Seth Rogen

    Hey dude!
    Love your glasses! But seriously, you need to gain some weight back. I’m all for gettin’ heart healthy, cutting back on the trans-fats and the beer intake, but you’ve taken it too far. How do I know? Because with all the poundage, you’ve lost your ability to be funny. Your “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig this weekend was terrible and we can only blame the writers so much. Your delivery was awful! I mean, who’s ever heard of a funny guy who isn’t funny? I’m not sure why you lost your giggle-inducing talent along with the weight, but if you want to save your career, you’ll start chowing down on the McGangBangs FAST. Also, be careful with the roles you choose. Your cameo in “Superbad” was genius — your starring role in the upcoming “Observe and Report” is cause for concern. Not everyone’s terrible choices go the way of Jimmy Fallon, who somehow managed to score a late-night hosting gig despite “Taxi” and “Fever Pitch.” Oh and seriously, even if you hadn’t sucked on “SNL” this weekend, I still would be suggesting you trim back on the trimming back — you were cuter with a lil’ meat on your bones.
    Love,
    Amelia
    P.S. A clip of your “SNL” monologue is after the jump, for those who were lucky enough to miss it the first time. Keep reading »

    Quote(s) Of The Day: Seth Rogen Talks Porn & Nudity In Playboy

    “I realized very early that there are two types of men in this world: Those who are comfortable sitting in a large group of men watching porn and those who are uncomfortable sitting in a large group of men watching porn. I am definitely in the latter category.”

    “It would have to be funny. I’m a very serious actor when it comes to nudity. I’m like Meryl Streep.”

    The Five Funniest Oscar Moments

    The movie business holds the Academy Awards in such high regard it can make or break a distribution deal. Luckily, actors don’t (always) take themselves so seriously. Aside from the over-the-top gushing that came when past winners introduced the nominees for the acting awards, there were plenty of LOL moments from last night’s Oscars (not including the moment when the camera caught Angelina Jolie laughing at Jennifer Aniston['s joke], above). From Styx lyrics in speeches to Steve Martin’s ego mania, here are our five favorite funnies…
