After seemingly appearing to admit Emma Watson had stormed off the set of This Is The End, Seth Rogen has taken steps to clear up the reports.
The actor took to Twitter on Tuesday to say he wanted to “correct” the story because “it misrepresents what actually happened”.
Seth, 38, starred in, co-wrote and co-directed the film. James Franco and Jonah Hill also starred as fictionalised versions of themselves trying to survive the apocalypse.
In an interview with GQ magazine last week, the Canadian actor addressed rumours that the Harry Potter actress, 30, walked off set after objecting to a scene in the movie involving cannibalism.
He admitted there are “no hard feelings” between the pair.
However, he has said in a Twitter statement: “Emma Watson did not ‘storm off the set’ and it’s sh***y 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 bulls**t. I for sure should have communicated better and because I didn’t, she was put in an uncomfortable position.”
The scene in question featured Danny McBride as a cannibal and Channing Tatum as a prisoner on a leash wearing a revealing leather thong.
The Knocked Up revealed he talked about the scene with Emma on the same night and described it as a “sh***y situation”, before praising the actress for sharing her objections with him.
He added: “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.”
Seth told GQ that Emma was “probably right” about the scene and that it was “probably funnier the way we ended up doing it”.
He co-directed This Is The End alongside Evan Goldberg.
