Seth Rogen is setting the record straight about those Emma Watson “This Is the End” rumours.
The “Harry Potter” actress, who played herself in the 2013 apocalypse movie, was reported to have walked off set after refusing to film a scene in which Danny McBride is a cannibal and Channing Tatum is his gimp, wearing a leather-thonged mask and on a leash.
When asked what happened and if she’d just not read the script properly, Rogen recently said in an interview with British GQ, “I mean, I don’t look back on that and think, How dare she do that? You know? I think sometimes when you read something, when it comes to life it doesn’t seem to be what you thought it was.”
“But it was not some terrible ending to our relationship,” he went on.
“She came back the next day to say goodbye. She helped promote the film. No hard feelings and I couldn’t be happier with how the film turned out in the end.”
Rogen added, “She was probably right. It was probably funnier the way we ended up doing it.”
After publications then brought up the “storming off set” Watson reports after his interview comments, Rogen made sure to have his say on social media, denying this was the case and insisting he was “thrilled for the opportunity” to work with the actress. He also apologized for the situation she found herself in, adding “I wish I had done more to prevent it.”

The British GQ interview also saw the star speak about why he couldn’t live without weed and why he chooses to do drugs over drinking alcohol.
