Seth Rogen, most known for his roles in Superbad, Funny People, and Knocked Up, has strong morals when it comes to whom with he chooses to associate. When Seth sat down with Stephen Colbert recently on The Late Show, Rogen revealed that he had actually said “no” to the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, who requested taking a photograph with him.
According to Seth, Mitt Romney invited him to go to a summit, where he was approached by many young fans. One of the kids told him that their father wanted to meet the comedian.
When Seth looked up, he saw Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, walking toward him. Paul Ryan walked right up to him and shook his hand, with Rogen standing there and begrudgingly shaking it back.
However, Ryan asked him, “Can I have a picture with you?” and Rogen said, “No way, man!” And the comedian didn’t stop after that either. The Funny People alum then went on to say just precisely why he refused to do so.
Rogen told the politician that he hated what he was doing to the country and was counting the days until he no longer had even an “iota” of power in the nation.
However, the situation was awkward for him because his kids were right there and they “seemed lovely.”
As bad as it was for them, Rogen said Paul’s children should learn that if they’re watching a movie or listening to a song they like, there’s a good chance that the maker of it doesn’t like their dad. Rogen joked that the only way they would like Paul Ryan was if the person was “watching Roseanne re-runs.”
As you may know, Roseanne Barr lost her TV show on ABC after she made racist remarks on Twitter. As a result, the CEO of Channing Dungey, announced immediately after that the show was over.
