Ask a Grown Man: Seth Rogen

Ken Miller (4ever) answers your queries about crushes, weird hats, and where to find good porn.

You know Seth Rogen’s charming mug from the wonderful Freaks and Geeks, plus a zillion movies that you keep watching over and over again, e.g., This Is the End, Superbad, and The 40-Year-Old Virgin (directed by fellow Grown Man Judd Apatow). This Friday, May 9, you’ll also be able to catch Seth in the new movie Neighbors, in which he plays a Cool Dad™ at war with a frat boy portrayed by Zac Efron. If you’re like, “I pretty much can’t wait that long to watch Sir Rogen talk and move on a screen again,” you’re in luck: He graciously agreed to answer your life- and love-based questions for this latest installment of Ask a Grown. After you watch it, you’ll deffo agree that he would probably make a great Cool Dad™ in reality, too.

Thinking that your life might benefit from a little advice from a non-terrible adult? (No, really, they DO exist—trust us.) Send a little message about your problems to youaskedit@rookiemag.com with “Ask a Grown” in the subject line, and please include your first name (or your nickname/initials), your city, and your age.

    This has probably been my favorite AaGM partially due to content but mostly due to the fact that I really like Seth Rogen and he was nice like I always hoped he would be.

    This is awesome! Seth Rogen seems super cool.

  • natalia May 7th, 2014 10:18 AM

    Although I love Seth Rogan and think he’s hilarious I also think his advice kinda sucks. And tbh I don’t feel right taking advice from a guy so connected to his character in movies like Superbad and This is the End. I feel irresponsible even considering his advice. Yeah I get he’s acting and is probably a really perceptive guy IRL I can’t shake the feels. Also I feel like weird hat guy’s hat is a part of his identity and he should never take it off.

    He is such a sweetheart! He almost seemed uncomfortable answering the relationship questions. I can only imagine how shy and awkward he must have been in high school! Cutie!

  • kimmybear May 7th, 2014 11:38 AM

    I’m sure Seth is a great guy, and I did smile quite a lot while watching this, but I have to disagree with his point regarding BDSM-type pornography. I can’t say anything on behalf of the porn stars in the films, but I know when it comes to real-life sex, a lot of women do enjoy that stuff. Between two consenting partners it can be an awesome, super sexy thing to use restraints, be spanked, talk dirty, etc.; and it’s very seldom like, “oh my god he’s such an asshole he’s just pushing me around what the hell????”. I just think Seth could have made a little disclaimer about how people who do that outside of porn are generally pretty content with their sex lives.

    • Coco May 11th, 2014 5:14 AM

      True that. BDSM isn’t degrading if it’s safe and consensual. Also, a lot of BDSM actually involves a man being degraded by a woman.

    For the person with a crush on weird hat guy – if you really like him, go for it! I had a crush on a guy in my friend group who was a few inches shorter than me when I was 16 (his nickname was ‘midget’) and I was really worried that if we dated our friends would make fun of us.

    Well, we did date – in fact four years later we are still dating (though he did eventually have a growth spurt). Any awkward slouching I did at the start of our relationship, and any banter from our friends, soon stopped once everyone got used to us and realized how cute we are (in my biased opinion!). A little teasing at the start of the relationship was totally worth it.

    And if things don’t work out, just treat the teasing as an in joke and move on.

  • Tiana July 14th, 2014 3:44 PM

    Ahaha this is brilliant! I love Seth rogan
