Seth Rogen's Wife Lauren Wrote An Incredibly Moving, Important Piece On The Will Ferrell Alzheimer's Movie Scandal

no title

Lauren Miller Rogen is a funny lady, but she's pretty damn serious about Alzheimer's.

The actress and screenwriter, who is married to star Seth Rogen, cofounded Hilarity For Charity specifically to raise awareness (and therefore research funding) for the degenerative disease that affected her mother.

So when she heard about Will Ferrell starring in an "Alzheimer's comedy," she figured she needed to investigate.

She writes in a poignant new essay:

"I have long advocated that Alzheimer's should be more prominent in movies and TV so that it can be destigmatized and humanized in the same way that cancer and HIV/AIDS have been. In order for Alzheimer's to receive the funding it needs and deserves, it needs to be understood by the millions of people who think memory loss is a normal part of aging (it's not) or even funny (it's definitely not)."

Not wanting to prejudge the material, Lauren tracked down the Black List script, which she thought was actually "well-written" even if it "does not portray the disease in an accurate way."

According to the Taiwanese entrepreneur:

"When she was diagnosed with the disease I felt frustrated (as do many caregivers) seeing her gradually lose her ability to take care of herself, but there was not much I could do to help."

Specifically, the Master of Fine Arts degree holder saw her grandmother struggle with eating.

However, instead of sitting back, Sha decided to take action.

And that's when the idea for Eatwell was born!
