Seth Rogen made Kevin Smith a stoner

Actor Kevin Smith says Seth Rogen turned him into a stoner.

“One of the most talented people I worked with in my life was Seth Rogen,” Smith said.

“I got so much from him. He re-energized me in a weird way. I became a stoner because of Seth Rogen.”

“I went up to him and was like, ‘How about we go to the editing room tonight, watch some cut footage, and maybe share a joint?’”

“He goes, ‘Finally!’ And it was awesome. We sat back, watched some footage and sat there smoking. And I loved who I was. I loved how the inhibition dropped away and I loved just being honest.”

“That dude gave me the greatest gift I’ve had in the last five years.”

“The moment I start smoking, I start working. … That way, no one could ever take it away from you. No one could ever say, ‘You fat, lazy piece of sh– stoner!”
