Stars, apparently, are just like us.
Canadian actor, writer, comedian, cannabis entrepreneur, and potter Seth Rogen shocked the delicate sensibilities of a British morning chat show after he claimed to “smoke weed all day, every day” and dropped some colourful language during a 20-minute spot on ITV’s Good Morning Britain.
Rogen, 39, made the appearance to promote his recently-published book of personal essays, Year Book, and was asked by host Bill Turnbull about his consumption of cannabis (of which the actor has made no great secret).
“You’re very honest about it, you smoke cannabis every day?” Turnbull asked.
“I do, I smoke cannabis all day every day,” Rogen replied candidly, noting that the concept that cannabis consumption can render a person lazy has roots in racist ideology. “I have for the last 25 years or so I would say… It’s something that is intrinsic to my day-to-day functionality.”
Rogen had fewer glowing things to say about alcohol, Britain’s drug of choice.
