Oh, Seth Rogen, what a joker! Ever the funny man (or something), he recently sounded off on his man crush on Zac Efron after the two worked together on the upcoming comedy Townies, which will probably suck.
“Zac Efron is incredibly handsome,” Rogen, 31, told reporters recently at the second annual Hilarity For Charity House Party in Los Angeles. “He’s the sexiest [expletive] on the planet!”
Acting beside the buff Efron, 25, was a challenge, says Rogen, particularly at one point during the shoot.
“I did a scene with him, and we’re both shirtless, and it was a very humbling experience,” Rogen said with his trademark chuckle. “I marveled at the fact that we’re literally the same species.”
Still, Rogen found a degree of solace in knowing that he beats Efron on one score, at least.
“I’m hairier than he is, so I win at that,” the actor told PEOPLE as he clutched his wife, Lauren Miller, to his side. “[Zac's] very veiny. I’m not that veiny.”
I hate People‘s editorial style sometimes – he “clutched” his wife? What is she, a steering wheel? Anyway, good for Zac Efron and his staying power. He was #1 crush material for teens/20-somethings back in like, 2006, and he’s still making hearts flutter.

OK, so I’m not going to lie: I watched at least half of this trailer trying to decide whether or not I this movie was complete and utter bullshit, or if this movie actually had some hidden genius somewhere. Want to know how it all ends? I’ll give you a hint: it’s the first thing. The “complete and utter bullshit” option, and while it’s chock-full of big name celebrities like Jonah Hill, Emma Watson, James Franco, and Seth Rogen, among others, it’s *also* an self-indulgent piece of dreck that isn’t worth the three minutes and eleven seconds of its red band trailer. Also in the film is Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Michael Cera, Mindy Kaling, and Rihanna.
Hey, also, is Jay Baruchel the worst actor that ever lived or what? For real—I’m pretty sure his best work happened in ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark’.
Thoughts on ‘This is the End’? Am I being too hard on this wee wittow movie?
On another note, something that’s not at all dumb—well, OK, sort of dumb, but not dumb in the way that ‘This is the End’ is dumb—’Warm Bodies’. Hear of it? Here’s the trailer:
And here’s the first four minutes if you’re still interested:

Ever see that video of Seth Rogen doing stand-up comedy as a 13-year old? OK, great. Because, oddly, it’s exactly the same as Seth Rogen now. Like he isn’t that funny! Sorry! Winning, yes. Charming, yes. Funny? Sigh.
That isn’t to say the man can’t land some zingers.
Here he is hosting the Independent Spirit Awards! I like the Spirit Awards a lot. You can hear people eating, and it’s very much more like prom. Seth Rogen curses a lot! He’s really uncomfortable!
Here’s a joke I liked: “I was committed to watching all your movies—that’s one of the things you have to do when you host—and I made it through the first five minutes of every single one of them. And, uh, some of ‘em start pretty slow! I will tell you that right now! Pretty f—king slow!”
“I honestly bet, though, that Brett Ratner really wishes that he was organizing the Grammys, because they seem much more forgiving than the Oscars altogether. Seriously. You say a few hateful things, they don’t let you within a hundred yards of the Oscars. You could literally beat the shit out of a nominee, they ask you to perform twice at the Grammys.”
And as soon as he lands his punchline, check out Patricia Clarkson! She is freaking out! That woman hates Chris Brown! (Kirsten Dunst is more like “oh, my God,” but Kirsten Dunst is always like that in the face of controversy, grabbing her pearls and promising whoever is sitting nearby that she completely disapproves.)
Finally, John C. Reilly’s hat! Hi there, John’s hat!

Congratulations are in order for Seth Rogen, High Times magazine’s “Stoner of the Year.”
This momentous occasion marks Rogen’s second win. He also won in 2007. (And “Stonette of the Year” that year? Anna Faris.)
I had to google the “Stony Awards,” and here is what I learned: winners “receive a bong-shaped trophy.” I’m not entirely sure that they do, though: it looks to me as if the “trophy” itself is just a bong on a mount, and with a plaque glued to it. Lame! They should be doling out “golden bongs” instead, obviously.
Meanwhile, Pop2it is quick to point out that the Stony Awards are “not quite annual.” Ha, ha.
And finally, just a reminder:

So, Michelle Williams has been blowing it up big time over the past few years, just churning movies out like butter, and the buck did not stop with Blue Valentine. Her latest project? A movie called Take This Waltz, which, according to IMDB (’cause I hadn’t heard of it ’til I saw the behind-the-scenes stills) is supposed to be a “funny, bittersweet and heart-wrenching story about a woman struggling to choose between two different types of love.”
I love independent films, and moreover, I’ve been a big fan of ‘major’ celebrities like Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling (Lars and the Real Girl? Awesome.) doing a lot of underground movies over the past few years. It’s bringing cinema back as an art, not just as, “Hey, let’s bring Jennifer Aniston or Cameron Diaz into some random movie plot and make it a zany romantic comedy, OK, but a different zany romantic comedy, not the same old-same old that we’ve seen sixty-five-thousand times already.” Oh, wait. Dammit.
Yeah, and in case you couldn’t tell from the photos, Sarah Silverman’s in the movie, too. And Seth Rogen, though he’s actually not pictured. But I could really give a crap less about either of them, anyway.

Rogen was on Jimmy Kimmel last night to promote his new movie, Funny People. Amongst other things, he talked about how the first time he was on the show, Megan Fox gave him the cold shoulder. (Skip ahead to 2:20 for the condensed version. )
I’m going to add “horrible taste in men” right next to “horrible taste in tattoos” on the Megan Fox shit list.
