Seth Rogen is an actor and writer who has starred in many films. James Franco is also a successful actor and filmmaker. For years, the two were friends, but they had a public spat on Twitter after Seth’s interview with Howard Stern. Find out why their friendship fell apart and what happened next!
The two first met when they were still teenagers while filming Freaks & Geeks, which was Seth’s first acting role. They became good friends after that, although their friendship had ups and downs like most relationships do. When they weren’t hanging out together behind the scenes at work, they were partying. However, their fun-loving attitude began to change when James got married.
James Franco’s Wife?
The two were very close friends who did many interviews together and even hosted SNL several times for years. After one of their interviews with Howard Stern, they had a public falling out. It all started when Seth mentioned his wife but refused to name her during the interview despite the incessant questioning.
He claimed he didn’t want anyone harassing her. So he chose not to answer any questions related to marriage or children in general. Yet, this led people online to ask why Seth wouldn’t just reveal if he was currently married. Also because it wasn’t like it would hurt anybody for him saying yes or no. As soon as that happened, though, James decided to chime in and tweeted, “Please never speak of my wife again.”
How did Rogen and Franco become friends?
James Franco and Seth Rogen have been friends since the early 2000s. They often worked together on projects, including a sitcom called Freaks and Geeks about teenagers living in suburban Detroit, which was launched in 1999.
The show only lasted for one season, but it has developed something of a cult following over the years, with critics claiming that it is one of the best shows ever to be aired on television!
In 2003 both actors starred in an independent comedy film titled “The Green Hornet.” It wasn’t very successful at first, but it grew into a box office hit when released internationally. This led to them being cast as leading characters in other films such as Pineapple Express (2008) and 50/50 (2011).
In 2011 Seth Rogen was interviewed by Howard Stern on the radio. He discussed his sex life and said that he had been drunk or high while working on movies such as The Green Hornet, Pineapple Express, 50/50, and This Is the End.
Although this isn’t a secret because these films are all comedies about drugs, some people took offense at what he said during the interview! But this was not the breaking point.
Who is Seth Rogen’s best friend?
At some point, Seth Rogen and James Franco were best friends. They shot movies together and did their projects together. However, several issues in their friendship led to their break up. As of now, nobody knows Rogen’s best friend.
However, when five women accused Franco of sexual harassment, Rogen openly declared that he would never work with him in any project.
Why did their friendship break up?
Seth Rogen interviewed Howard Stern, which angered James Franco because he was not asked to be on the show. In response, James made some nasty comments about Seth’s movie The Green Hornet online. A long time ago they were good friends, but now it seems like they are enemies!
What happened next?
After that incident, Seth went on David Letterman’s Late Show to talk about what had just occurred between them both during his interview with Howard Stern. He said, “We got into an argument over Twitter… I think honestly it started out as harmless.” Then after Seth called him out for bad mouthing, the issue entirely escalated.
