You might not expect Seth Rogen, the hilarious and successful comedian/writer/director/actor, to express many regrets about his career choices. But Rogen’s “Hilarity for Charity” Netflix special includes a scene of him in hell, thinking of all the things he’d have done differently in his life.
“I would not have smoked weed in front of Steven Spielberg that one time,” Rogen says. “He never looked at me as a serious actor again.”

Like with most of Rogen’s performances, you wonder if it’s an exaggeration or fabrication. Turns out, as he revealed on a recent “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” appearance, that actually happened. At an Oscars party, Spielberg approached Rogen right when he lit up a joint.
“I was like, ‘Do I stop? Do I just hold it? That’s weird,’” Rogen explained. “I just have to keep smoking… and I just kept smoking it, in Steven Spielberg’s face, as I saw the look on his face where he’s just like, ‘I’m never working with this motherfucker ever again.’”
Later in the show, Rogen shared his experience of a University of Vermont fraternity asking if they could induct Rogen into their organization. Rogen agreed and afterwards traveled back to one of the member’s apartments to smoke a joint as a token of their newfound brotherhood.

The story led Kimmel to declare the “Mount Rushmore” of people you want to smoke weed with. Kimmel’s four members (and Rogen’s, too, for the most part) included Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Woody Harrelson, and Rogen, admitting that the actor had bumped off Cheech and Chong.
