Seth Rogen sets the record straight on rumors that Emma Watson fled the set during a scene from “This Is the End,” a disaster comedy parody released in 2013.
Rogen, 38, took to Twitter on Monday night to share a lengthy statement in support of Watson, just days after apparently confirming the rumor in an interview.
“I want to correct a story that emerged from a recent interview I gave. It distorts what really happened. Emma Watson didn’t ‘storm the set’ and that’s fine… the perception is that she did, ”Rogen’s statement begins.
“The scene was not what was originally scripted, it was improvised, drastically changed and it was not what she had agreed to. The tale that she wasn’t cool or unprofessional is sort of complete bulls – t. I certainly should have communicated better. and because I didn’t, she was put in an awkward position, ”he added.

We agreed that she would not be on stage together, ”he continued. “I was delighted to have the opportunity to work with her and would love to have this opportunity again. I am very sorry and disappointed that this has happened, and I wish I had done more to prevent it. ”
