Their mutual friend, screenwriter/produce Will Reiser, was seeing Miller’s friend and arranged a date for them.
Miller told Vulture in 2012, “This was before ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’ and I had no idea who he was. And I was really shy around guys, but he was also awkward and weird around girls.”
Rogen later told Haute Living in 2015 that the two hit it off so well that they kept hanging out that same night. They got grilled cheese sandwiches together at four a.m. and played Spanish Scrabble until sunrise.
“A 16-year-old had stolen his dad’s car and hit us,” she explained. “He drove off and we spun across three lanes of traffic. He totaled his car, my roommate had to come drive him home, and that was our first date.”
He went on to say that he originally had grand plans for the proposal, but it just happened that way. “I didn’t picture it like this, and I know she didn’t picture it like this,” he said.
Rogen told Glamour in 2014 that after Miller said yes, they ate buffalo wings and watched “Top Chef” together.
Celebrity guests included friends Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, Adam Sandler, and Judd Apatow. A source told Us Weekly that the wedding was hilarious, saying, “Every other line was a joke. The crew couldn’t contain their laughter!”
“I don’t know anyone who works harder than my husband,” Miller said.”He’s so incredibly dedicated, but also does things always with a smile.”
She added, “He always has a good time. That was incredible for me to learn from. I feel lucky that I have someone that I live with who inspires me and pushes me.”
In his 2014 essay for Glamour, Rogen wrote, “Being a part of a family that is dealing with this thing changes my day-to-day life immensely.”
He added, “The depressing thing about Alzheimer’s is you can’t do anything a lot of the time. But just sitting there, watching it happen, was emotionally brutal. So we started Hilarity for Charity to raise money for research and awareness.”
Miller told Entertainment Tonight, “We watch a lot of television.”
Rogen added, “If our relationship works, the only thing that we do is watch a lot of television. So I guess we have to credit it to that.”
He said that the two are “open” to it, and called it “an active conversation,” adding, “I honestly think I would be good at it. I have much stupider friends who are good parents.”
He said they really appreciate the lifestyle they have, saying, “We looked at each other a lot and were like, ‘If we had kids, we could not be doing what we’re doing right now.”
Rogen went on to say that a lot of people try to convince the couple to have kids, and said that while he appreciates that other people love being parents, he’s “pretty at peace” with his decision not to be one.
When Miller was asked how she reacted to Rogen kissing his co-star Charlize Theron on the set of the film “Long Shot,” Miller joked, “I wish I could kiss Charlize Theron!”
The couple was asked if they had a “hall pass” — someone they’re allowed to sleep with outside their marriage — for each other, and Rogen clarified that they don’t have an open relationship.
They did joke that they had a hall pass to sleep with Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron, though.
In his caption, he wrote, “Happy anniversary to us!! I can’t believe I’ve been lucky enough to find the perfect partner to go through life with. After 9 years married and over 15 years together, I love @laurenmillerrogen more every day. Here’s me beating her at video games at our wedding.”
Miller shared her own photo — a black and white shot of the two on their wedding day. She wrote, “Happy Anniversary to us! 9 years married/15 together, and celebrating all the GOOD stuff.”
He explained that he didn’t want to have kids because it would limit him from everything he wants to do, and said that Miller “wants kids less than I do.”
He added, “We have so much fun. I don’t know anyone who gets as much happiness out of their kids as we get out of our non-kids. We’re f—ing psyched all the time. We’re lying in bed Saturday morning, smoking weed, watching movies naked — if we had kids we could not be doing this.”
