Seth Rogen has cleared up the story that Emma Watson “stormed off” the set of their film This Is The End, revealing that there was no “storming” and that he himself had messed up as writer and director.

Over the weekend, GQ published an interview with Rogen in which he was asked about a particular rumour having to do with This Is The End. 

Said rumour claimed Watson “stormed off the set” after refusing to shoot a scene that involved Danny McBride as a cannibal and Channing Tatum as his gimp on a leash.

“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,” Rogen told GQ.

“But it was not some terrible ending to our relationship. She came back the next day to say goodbye. She helped promote the film,” he said, adding that there are no hard feelings at all.

Well, that yarn went boonta – so boonta that Rogen went full notes-app to explain that the original scripted scene had been changed and Watson just didn’t agree with the new, improvised scene. That’s why she left.

“I want to correct a story that has emerged from a recent interview I gave,” Rogen said.

“It misrepresents what actually happened. Emma Watson did not ‘storm off the set’ and it’s shitty that the perception is that she did.

“The scene was not what was originally scripted, it was getting improvised, changed drastically and was not what she agreed to.

“The narrative that she was in some way uncool or unprofessional is complete bullshit.”

Rogen said he should’ve said more at the time and it’s because he didn’t that Watson was left in an uncomfortable position.

“She and I spoke on the night; it was overall a shitty situation and it must have been hard for her to say something and I’m very happy and impressed that she did,” he continued.

“We agreed on her not being in the scene together. I was thrilled for the opportunity to work with her and would be thrilled to get that opportunity again.

“I am very sorry and disappointed it happened, and I wish I had done more to prevent it.”
