Seth Rogen Recalls Freaking Out Bryan Cranston on Cannabis Edibles
"If I was alarming to Walter White, I must have been fucked!"
Published Mar 09, 2021Seth Rogen has rarely shied away from talking about his cannabis usage, and when it comes to flying a little too high, he's shared that acquaintances like Bryan Cranston help make sure he stays grounded.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Rogen discussed the difference in how Canada and the United States regulate edible cannabis products, and shared how he's had "scattershot" experiences with edibles from the latter country.
Specifically, he recalled a "pretty bad" experience at the Golden Globes a few years ago, telling Kimmel, "The thing about edibles...there's been times where I've thought I was fine, but I was not."
"I was at the Golden Globes, which are a nightmare, so I had a weed lollipop throughout the show," Rogen shared. "In my head, I was like, 'I'm really high, but I'm keeping it together.' That's was what I kept thinking in my head. 'Man, this thing's fucking me up but at least I look and am acting totally normal.'"
Rogen continued, "Then the show ended, and I went to an afterparty, and I saw Bryan Cranston, who I don't know that well. I saw him, and the first thing he said to me was, 'Are you okay?,' which is an alarming question to be asked when you think you are okay!"
Kimmel found humour in the star of Breaking Bad making such an observation, with Rogen agreeing, "That guy's seen some things! If I was alarming to Walter White, I must have been fucked!"
But how did Rogen answer Cranston's all-important question? "I turned around and left," he shared. "I walked out of the hotel...got in my car and went home."
Rogen and Kimmel also spoke about the Canadian's U.S. expansion of Houseplant, his cannabis brand which first launched in Canada in 2019. You can watch him tell the story of his time with Cranston around the 13-minute mark below.
