Seth Rogen told Andy Cohen last year that he’s smoked pot with Paul Rudd, Sarah Silverman, and Snoop Dogg. One person he has not copped to sparking up with? Former Sony chairwoman Amy Pascal, who handled the mess of Sony’s hacking scandal and the controversial release of Rogen’s movie The Interview.
And if the Hollywood Reporter is to be believed, it will not be happening anytime soon. Pascal is moving into an office that Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg had formerly occupied. THR reports that Pascal’s new office is being repainted to try and mask the lingering smell of Rogen and Goldberg’s smoke sessions.
On Wednesday, Rogen posted a screenshot of the article and denied the story, saying, “#myshitsmellsgood.”
“I don’t know what’s more irresponsible: that they would print a story that is completely untrue, or that they would refer to how pot smells as a ‘stench.'”
For those who think this could be fixed simply by a little spritz of Febreeze, the THR says that “the problem will require an industrial-strength solution.”
An old Rogen tweet illustrates the same point:
If I got blindfolded and put in one of those dirty rooms in the Febreeze commercial, my comment would be, "It stinks like Febreeze in here."
