Actor and comedian Seth Rogen has been smoking even more weed than usual due to the lockdown.
An outspoken advocate for marijuana legalization, Rogen has been using the quarantine as an excuse to indulge in cannabis.
The United States has been on lockdown for well over a month now as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Most people are stuck at home, and millions of Americans have lost their jobs.
Infamous for his role in the popular 2007 film “Knocked Up,” Rogen recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about what he’s been doing during the shutdown.
After pranking Jimmy with a pre-recorded introduction, Rogen is asked what he’s been doing during the lockdown, to which he responds, “[I’ve been] doing a ton of pottery and ceramics.
I’ve smoked a truly ungodly amount of weed in the time that I’ve been quarantined. More than normal! Thank God it has been declared an essential service, because for me it truly is essential.”
Evidently, Rogen has been preparing for this all his life.
According to Rogen, “We are not all in this together because this has not been that bad for me. I’ll be totally honest. This has been fine. I am built for this. I have kind of been self-isolating since 2009.”
Rogen has been practicing his pottery skills to stay busy during the shutdown.
He eagerly showed off one of his creations, a ceramic soap dispenser, to Jimmy Kimmel, saying, “I actually have three wheels. So many of our friends wanted to do pottery, we got a literal third wheel, me and my wife, to allow our friends to do pottery with us. We have wheels. We have a kiln. We found a place that will delivery clay in this time of quarantine.”
Rogen and his wife have yet to start a family, something that Rogen has been celebrating as of late. On that subject, added Rogen, “The fact that I have no kids is making this truly not that bad. I will be lying alone on my death bed having not talked to anyone in 15 years and I’ll be like, ‘It was worth it for the coronavirus sh*t.”

The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) Tweeted “@SethRogen says he has been passing the time by smoking a lot of marijuana in quarantine.” Susan Eisenberg (@susaneisenberg1) commented on the Tweet, saying, “This is your story?!” Rogen’s response: “Pretty much the entire entertainment industry is shut down. This sh*t’s all there is.”
Rogen celebrated his 38th birthday with a social-distance drive by. In the interview, Rogen told Jimmy Kimmel, “It was perfect. All I want is to see everyone for 15 to 20 seconds. I don’t need to get close. I’m more than happy to go out, wave to my friends and speak to them for 15 seconds and everyone go on their merry way. Again I’m really built for this.”
