Seth Rogen On The Sony Hack And The Interview: 'Wasn't Meant To Be Controversial'

Seth Rogen is just a funny guy with a bunch of filmmaking talent, trying to make people laugh.

So he clearly got way more than he bargained for when the whole Sony hack went down.

Seth and James Franco stopped by Good Morning America this week to promote their new movie The Interview, as if they needed to.

The film has been stirring up controversy ever since hackers started calling it "the movie of terrorism." Is Rogen scared? Does he believe he is partly responsible for the hack?

He said:

"I can't definitively say I know the ramifications of the storm. I mean, I don't know if the hacking honestly is because of our movie, definitively or not. I know that it has been the center of a lot of media attention lately. It is weird, because we just wanted to make a really funny, entertaining movie, and the movie itself is very silly and wasn't meant to be controversial in any way."

We totally believe that they just wanted to make a funny film but it seems like there was a lot of frustrating back and forth between Rogen and the studio.

Rogen was still super chill about everything, saying:

"Ultimately, it's a creative dialogue. As the filmmakers, we're just trying to entertain the audience as much as possible. The people who pay for our movies have a billion other things that they're worried about as well. With every movie we do, there's a conversation creatively over what happens. But ultimately, I'm 100 percent behind the finished product of the movie."

The problem is, no matter how much he loves his movie, there are those threatening the film could start world war 3.

Does Rogen have any second thoughts? He said:

"At this point, it's too late to have any [second thoughts], really. Again, I like the movie. I can't, in my head, over-connect everything surrounding it with the movie itself."

Seth, like Sony, isn't sure if North Korea is behind the attack, but Seth does wonder how his film would be received in North Korea. Saying:

"In the movie, we go to great lengths to separate the regime that rules North Korea with the North Korean people themselves. And they are not bad. They are the victims of a horrible situation. So part of me thinks that they themselves would really enjoy the movie. But who knows?"

Sounds like Seth ain't afraid of no hackers!

Or even the North Korean government for that matter.

Would we risk WWIII just to see Seth Rogen's newest film? Probably! WOULD YOU??

    Its aimed at audiences with IQs the same as their ages. Franco and Rogen are so forced and unfunny, why would anyone waste money on a ticket?

    MitchJB agreed. Their whole schtik is controversial…everything they do…Rogen is a pothead bafoon with no talent and Angie is wooden with one facial expression for close-ups…Sony is promoting garbage

    Maybe, just maybe, these "leaked" emails, Sony hackers, cancelled events, gossip, what have you…are part of a publicity stunt? Food for thought.

    This guy has no creative ability.

    Why is it that Hollywood finds the CIA's assassination policy humorous? The redacted "Family Jewels" indicates that in addition to attempts made on the life of Fidel Castro from Kennedy to Regan, the CIA helped overthrow governments in Iran, Guatemala, Chili, and Vietnam etc. So why should N. Korea find the assassination of their leader as "humorous"? Hollywood and the mainstream broadcast media has become nothing more than a propaganda ministry for U.S. policy (the Wolfowitz Doctrine): False Flags, State Sponsored Terrorism (asymmetrical warfare), Signature Strikes, kidnapping & torture (Extraordinary Rendition), lying to invade countries, and the usurpation of the U.S. Constitution with the NDAA & Patriot acts, indicates what the "New World Order" will look like, in the "New American Century".
