Rogen starred in, co-wrote, and co-directed the film, which also featured fictionalised versions of James Franco and Jonah Hill attempting to escape the apocalypse.
Last week, the Canadian discussed rumours that Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, 30, walked off set after objecting to a scene in the film involving cannibalism in an interview with GQ magazine.
He said there are “no bad feelings” between him and Watson in response to the query. Rogen, 38, said he wanted to “correct” the article because “it misrepresents what really happened” in a statement posted to Twitter on Tuesday.
“Emma Watson did not’storm off the set,’ and the perception that she did is s*****,” he said. The scene was not as it had been scripted; it had been improvised, radically modified, and was not what she had agreed to.
“The narrative that she was uncool or unprofessional in any way is absolute nonsense. I definitely should have communicated better, and she was placed in an awkward situation as a result of my failure to do so.”
Danny McBride played a cannibal, and Channing Tatum played an inmate on a leash wearing a provocative leather thong in the scene in question.
“We decided on her not being in the scene with us,” Rogen continued. I was ecstatic to have the chance to work with her and would jump at the chance to do so again. “I’m very sorry it happened, and I wish I could have done anything to prevent it.”
