Seth outlined that the press misrepresented Emma Watson following an incident on set.
Comedian Seth Rogen took to Twitter to clarify speculation over Emma Watson’s behaviour on the set of the 2013 film This Is The End.
The comedian was recently asked by GQ Magazine to comment on rumours that Watson walked off set in objection to a scene involving cannibalism. In response, Rogen said that there were “no hard feelings” between the two actors.
On Twitter, however, Rogen addressed the presentation of the narrative. He insisted that Watson did not storm off set during filming.
“I want to correct a story that has emerged from a recent interview I gave,” he wrote. “It misrepresents what actually happened. Emma Watson did not ‘storm off the set’ and it’s shitty that the perception is that she did.”
He continued: “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. I for sure should have communicated better and because I didn’t, she was put 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. We agreed on her not being in the scene together.”
He added: “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.”
Seth Rogen produced and directed This Is The End with Evan Goldberg in 2013. The all-star apocalyptic comedy film featured several celebrity cameos including Rihanna, Channing Tatum and Kevin Hart.
