Seth Rogen and his love for marijuana is something that fans have been familiar with for years. The comedian’s laughter and his tendency to get stoned are equally iconic and that has turned him into a modern day pop-culture icon.
While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Rogen recalled an interesting story about an encounter between himself and the legendary Bryan Cranston. Rogen narrated a story about how he managed to scare Bryan Cranston at a Golden Globes while being stoned on edibles.
Rogen bumped into the Breaking Bad actor at a Golden Globes after party and the first thing Cranston asked when he saw him was if he was alright. Rogen, confident that he was in a great shape despite being extremely high, was taken aback by Cranston’s concern and came back to his senses.
I had one experience at the Golden Globes, actually, many years ago that was pretty bad, yeah. Because the thing with edibles is, there have been times where I thought I was fine but I was not. And that’s what’s scary about edibles is you don’t even know what they’re doing to you. I was at the Golden Globes, which are a nightmare, so I had a weed lollipop throughout the show and I thought in my head, I was like, ‘I’m really high but I’m keeping it together.’ That was what I kept thinking in my head. I was like, ‘Man, this thing is fucking me up but at least I look and am acting totally normal.’
I went to an afterparty and I saw Bryan Cranston, who I don’t know that well,” Rogen said. “But I saw him and the first thing he said to me was ‘Are you okay?’ which is an alarming question to be asked when you think you are okay … When you just think you’re doing good and someone looks at you, like very scared and says ‘Are you okay?’ it’ll really bring you back down to Earth.
Did Rogen rethink his use of edibles after this incident? Possibly not. But this little encounter with Cranston surely must have made him a more responsible consumer.
