You remember that first time you're parents caught you smoking weed in the attic late one night, and told you how bad weed was and kept saying that if this continued you would end up like Pee Wee Herman?
Welcome to the Pothead Profiles, a new section from The Nug, helping you prove mom wrong! Here we profile those certain stoner celebrities who can't help but make you want to light one up with them! Some smoke weed everyday, some just want it legalized, but what is really important is the realization of how mainstream marijuana use is becoming, and that these celebrities are a large reason for that! Sit back, Twist one, Spark up, and read about each celebrity and how they are affiliated with weed!
First up is the uber funny and super pothead Seth Rogen.
Rogen, originally from Vancouver, BC, moved to LA in 1999 and got his first break on the NBC show Freaks and Geeks, but really made it big on the stoner flick Pineapple Express, A pro-cannabis comedy co-starring James Franco. Rogen has gone on to star or direct other hits such as Knocked Up, 40 Year Old Virgin, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and SuperBad, and has implanted himself as a face on the comedic Mt. Rushmore(joint in mouth ofcourse).
A hard worker, who left his parents at the age of 16 to achieve his acting dreams, Rogen embodies what a pothead should be. Smart, witty, but most importantly funny and he still smokes a sh*tload of weed! Keep up the good work sir!
Birthdate: April 15th, 1982
It has been rumored Seth Rogen came out of the womb smoking a joint!
OK, maybe that is stretching the truth a little bit, but would you be surprised? All joking aside Seth Rogen is a true stoner, one of the smoke weed every day variety and he isn't afraid to admit it. In 2012, while on the David Letterman show with a national television audience(video above), Rogen spoke about his pot use quite, for lack of a better term, bluntly,
Rogen, who has a legal California state cannabis card, also recently sat down with Rolling Stone Magazine with the rest of the cast from his latest movie, This is the End, and talked a little more about what his relationship with weed was like. In true Rogen form, he takes an interesting view on what differentiates a pothead and a stoner, and we can't really disagree,
And this is why we love Seth Rogen. Not only is he out there making multi-million dollar movies and making us laugh our arses off, but he is in his dressing room smoking a blunt with snoop dogg while doing it(Rogen admits smoking a blunt with Snoop and "his crew" is a career highlight of his)! He is an everyday guy just like you and I who likes to toke up every now and than(more so now), and isn't afraid to admit it!
Well, it is official. Seth Rogen is the fu*king man! An overachiver, empowered by the green, Rogen is a modern day Popye who is just as likely to be friends with Snoop Dogg as he is your best friend's grandmother. Continuing to pop out movies on a yearly basis, Seth Rogen will be supplying our laughs for years to come, and we couldn't be happier to be supporting this green thumb!
