On Friday, during his interview with “The Late Show,” actor Seth Rogen revealed that he refused to take a picture with House Speaker Paul Ryan.
According to Rogen, this incident happened earlier this month at a summit in Park City Utah where he was invited to speak.
Rogen recalled that he was first approached by Ryan’s sons who asked for a picture and then they later told him that their father wanted to meet him.
He stated, “And then they said, ‘Our dad wants to meet you,’ and I turned around and Paul Ryan was walking towards me.” He continued, “My whole body, puckered, as it were, I tensed up, and I didn’t know what to do.”
He added that Ryan came over and “grabbed his hand” before he asked for a picture. But when Ryan asked for a photo, Rogen replied, “No way, man!”
He continued, “And I couldn’t stop, and I said, ‘Furthermore, I hate what you’re doing to the country at this point and I count the days until you no longer have one iota of the power that you currently have.'”

Rogen added that he felt “very conflicted” because he said all that to Ryan while his sons were “still standing right there.”
He stated, “It’s not their fault, but at the same time they should probably learn that if they like a movie or song, the person who made that probably doesn’t like their dad that much.”
Rogen concluded, “I don’t know how I feel — I’m glad I didn’t take a picture with Paul Ryan.”
