- The funnyman, 39, appeared on the breakfast show to plug his autobiography
- Discussing the inspiration of his grandmother in his new book, he revealed she told him to ‘give those sons of b*****s hell’ when he moved to LA
- He also said: ‘I smoke cannabis all day every day. I have for the last 25 years or so I would say. It’s something that is intrinsic to my day to day functionality’
- Following the remote appearance from his LA home, Susanna, 50, was forced to apologise for the language to ‘those of you who were offended’
Seth Rogen used strong language and spoke of using weed use ‘all day, every day’ during an interview on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday.
Host Susanna Reid, alongside guest host Bill Turnbull, was forced to apologise for the appearance after the early morning chat, as she said: ‘He did use some strong language during that interview, so apologies for that if you were offended.’
Discussing the inspiration of his grandmother in his autobiography, he revealed she told him to ‘give those sons of b*****s hell’, before detailing his use of marijuana and also slamming alcohol use and the effect drinking has on the body.
Oh my! Seth Rogen used strong language and spoke of using weed use ‘all day, every day’ during an interview on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday
While plugging his new book, Seth regaled: ‘I told a lot of jokes about my grandparents. My first set was when I was 12 years old in a lesbian bar.
‘They were very funny to me, my grandmother especially who was born fleeing World War One. She was a tough lady and before I moved to LA her advice to me was ‘give those sons of b*****s hell’, I’ll never forget that.’
Last week, Bill told The Sun how he uses garlic, cannabis and an oxygen tent to fight his prostate cancer, after being diagnosed in 2017.
Bill said: ‘You’re very honest about it, you smoke cannabis every day?’ to which Seth replied: ‘I do, I smoke cannabis all day every day. I have for the last 25 years or so I would say. It’s something that is intrinsic to my day to day functionality.’

He did however slam the use of alcohol, saying: ‘I personally think alcohol – and I know this is the last thing British people want to hear…
‘But on the grand scale of things we put in our bodies to intoxicate or remove ourselves from our normal baseline of functionality, alcohol is not a good one…
‘It’s high in calories, it gives you a hangover. There are other things we can be putting in our bodies that have less calories and don’t make you feel bad the next day, but they are much more stigmatised than alcohol.’
Sorry! She was quick to say sorry to the masses
‘The idea that people who smoke weed are lazy or that if you smoke weed all day you’re problematic or there’s something wrong with you is just not true…
‘It’s mostly based on racist lies told by people many years ago that we still unfortunately believe for the most part.’
He also discussed cancel culture and his films making people uncomfortable, saying: ‘I think there are certain jokes that for sure have not aged well…
‘But I think that’s the nature of comedy. I think conceptually those movies are sound and I think there’s a reason they’ve lasted. Jokes are not things that necessarily are built to last.’
Uh oh! He left the hosts red-faced yet won praise from fans
Viewers soon flooded Twitter to praise his views of drugs and alcohol.
He said: ‘Fascinating interview with Seth Rogen on GMB, he’s admitted to smoking weed everyday for 25 years but doesn’t touch Alcohol, he’s spot on and weed smokers get demonised for very little, particularly when it comes to jobs…
‘I’ve seen CEO’s snorting Persil Automatic though… i loved that interview with Seth Rogen on @gmb this morning. What an interesting and honest person!…
‘Owning his craft and work and accepting challenges to his work. We need more like him for sure Susanna and Bill did a great job there…
‘I like Seth Rogen. I like Seth Rogen being baked on TV. I like that Seth Rogen is happy being baked on TV. I don’t like judgemental people or people that completely overreact to the personal use of weed…
‘Great interview with Seth, love that guy and totally agree, legalise the weed. I’d rather be with someone who’s had too much weed than too much alcohol.’
