When in Hollywood, you just never know when you’ll wander into a film production. For actor Seth Rogen, an “intimate” night out with his wife to see Adele perform turned into fiasco when the pair arrived at the Griffith Observatory for the singer’s One Night Only taping in October.
In a recent chat, Rogen told Jimmy Fallon that he was quite confused by the camera crews that were on hand to capture the event, as well as his and his wife Lauren Miller’s placement in the front row – simply because they've never even met Adele before.
That confusion was likely hilariously compounded by Seth being high on marijuana as they showed up to the event, which in his mind was supposed to be a low-key affair. "We pull up and we see cranes and camera crews — there are drones flying around," he told Fallon on The Tonight Show. "There's an entire crew and I'm like, 'On no, we are at the filming of a television special,'" Rogen said.
"And then me and my wife were like, okay maybe slink into the background. We'll just sit in the back and it's fine," he continued. "We are not equipped mentally to deal with doing this right now. So, we go up to the desk, and they give us our tickets, and our seat numbers literally are 1a and 1b. And I'm like, 'Oh no, that sounds close.'"
Receiving such special treatment would surely mean the celebrities are at least mildly acquainted with each other, Fallon assumed. "No! I don't know Adele," Rogen exclaimed, adding, "And if Adele, you're watching this, why did you do that?"
The experience left Seth uncomfortable the whole night, feeling as if he had eyes on him wondering why he had such incredible seats. "There's so many more famous people than me here who should be sitting where I'm sitting," he remembers thinking. "I could just feel them be insulted that I had such a good seat. Like, I was in front of Drake... There's no world where I should be in front of Drake. I could just feel his eyes drilling into the back of my head. Like, 'why am I in 3R, and he's in 1A?'"
Knowing the cameras were rolling, Seth spent the night "trying to look cool," which proved difficult. "I'm uncomfortable, I'm too close. I feel Leonardo DiCaprio behind me thinking like, 'Did Seth Rogen write "Rolling in the Deep?" Is that why he's so close?'" Rogen laughed.
