Seth Rogen has admitted that he’s been in the know about the alleged Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels affair for over a decade now. The actor appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday and shared some tidbits of information about the whole mess.
Rogen told DeGeneres that Daniels had roles in both Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin and that talk of her affair with Trump came up in conversation.
“I’ve known Stormy Daniels a long time, and I’ll be honest, she may have mentioned some of this stuff around ten years ago,” said Rogen.
Daniels alleges the affair between her and Trump happened in 2006, which would have put it right around the same time as production on Knocked Up.
When asked if he was surprised Rogen said, “at the time, when you ask a porn star who they’ve been sleeping with and the answer is Donald Trump, it was like the least surprising thing that she could have said. And so yeah, she had mentioned it actually. She did mention it.”
He admitted he never expected the news to get out even with Trump running for president.
“It became clear that no one cared about anything he did,” Rogen said, referring to Trump’s scandalous campaign run. “It didn’t really occur to me even that it wouldn’t come out or anyone would care about it. But then when I saw it I was like, ‘Oh yeah, Stormy told us all about that.’”
If you’re wracking your brain trying to remember what role Daniels played in the movies, she wasn’t a major character but rather–surprise!– portrayed strippers.
“It was easier to hire porn stars to play strippers. For Stormy, that was the easiest thing she did all week … it seemed lateral at worst, and perhaps an easy day on set,” Rogen joked.
He says he hasn’t seen Daniels in years but says she’s clearly doing well for herself.
In the interview he also gets called out for cropping his wife out of a photo of him and Justin Trudeau on his Instagram. Watch the hilarious clip below.
