Seth Rogen took to Twitter to clarify that Emma Watson didn’t actually “storm off the set” of their 2013 comedy “This Is the End” – and that comments he made about the incident in a recent interview “misrepresent” what happened.
“I want to correct a story that has emerged from a recent interview I gave,” Rogen wrote in his statement on Monday. “Emma Watson did not ‘storm off the set’ and it’s s—-y that the perception is that she did.”
According to the actor, the scene that Watson had agreed to appear in “was getting improvised” and “changed drastically” into something that wasn’t what was originally scripted, which made Watson uncomfortable.
The scene in question was one of the movie’s most graphic, starring Danny McBride as a cannibal who has Channing Tatum on a leash as his gimp.
But Rogen explained that Watson remained polite throughout it all, writing, “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 “Superbad” actor added that he and Watson later spoke about the awkward incident, and they agreed that she wouldn’t be in the scene.
“I was thrilled for the opportunity to work with her and would be thrilled to get that opportunity again,” Rogen wrote. “I am very sorry and disappointed it happened, and I wish I had done more to prevent it.”
Representatives for Watson didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
“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,” he said.
“But it was not some terrible ending to our relationship,” Rogen added. “She came back the next day to say goodbye. She helped promote the film. No hard feelings and I couldn’t be happier with how the film turned out in the end.”
The actor went on to say that Watson may have been right that the scene was too outrageous and that influenced the final cut: “She was probably right. It was probably funnier the way we ended up doing it.”
Watson had the longest celebrity cameo in the 2013 apocalypse comedy “This Is The End,” which featured appearances from numerous other A-listers. Other stars who made briefer cameos included Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, and Aziz Ansari.
