Seth Rogen on one hand says that he also regrets the talk in which he joked about James Franco during the period of Rogen’s 2014 SNL monologue.
Seth Rogen clearly declared in an interview with Sunday Times that for further he doesn’t plan to work with James Franco. As after making allegations related to sexual misconduct by Franco on Seth. He doesn’t like to work with that person. However, Franco was also accused under the reason that he was forcing several acting students into sexual situations. Moreover, concerning it a lawsuit was also filed in February.
Both Rogen and Franco started their duo for working in the films from the “Freaks and Geeks”. And after that, they worked on many movies that include “Pineapple Express,” “This Is the End,” “The Disaster Artist,” and “The Interview.”.
Rogen also told the Times that “I also look back to that interview in 2018 where I comment that I would keep working with James, “and the truth is that I have not and I do not plan to right now.”
Also after that in the interview, Rogen was asked that this type of misconduct claims have affected their only personal relationship or the professional also. So, to that Rogen asked “I don’t know if I can define that right now during this interview. I can say it, um, you know, it has changed many things in our relationship and our dynamic.”
Rogen also added that now it is not a coincidence and the long relationship between the two of them has now ended. When the reporter of Times mentioned in the article that it “must be painful, ” Roger answered that “Yeah. But not as painful and difficult as it is for a lot of other people involved. I have no pit do, not pity this situation.”
Moreover, with this, the comedian also mentioned one of the 2014 analog talks. In which he declared that during a comedy night show Rogen asked a 17-year-old girl to meet up and when the thing came out then Rogen mentioned that “I decided to prank James Franco. I posed as a girl on Instagram told him I was way young. He seemed unfazed. I have a date to meet him at the Ace Hotel.”
In an interview with the Times Rogen also said that “What I can say is that I despise abuse and harassment and I would never cover or conceal the actions of someone doing it, or knowingly put someone in a situation where they were around someone like that. However, I do look back at a joke I made on ‘Saturday Night Live’ in 2014 and I very much regret making that joke. It was a terrible joke, honestly.”
