Kevin Smith reveals that actor Seth Rogen got him started smoking weed, which inspired him to work again.
Kevin Smith credits Seth Rogen with helping him get back to work, saying the actor inspired him.
“One of the most talented people I worked with in my life was Seth Rogen,” Kevin told MTV New. “I got so much from him. He re-energized me in a weird way. I became a stoner because of Seth Rogen.”
Kevin worked with Seth on “Zach and Miri Make a Porno”, saying he realized Rogen was a “functioning stoner.” And Smith decided to join him.
“I went up to him and was like, “˜How about we go to the editing room tonight, watch some cut footage, and maybe share a joint?'” Kevin said. “He goes, “˜Finally!’ And it was awesome. We sat back, watched some footage and sat there smoking. And I loved who I was. I loved how the inhibition dropped away and I loved just being honest.”
Smith says smoking marijuana got him back to work.
“That dude gave me the greatest gift I’ve had in the last five years,” Kevin said. “The moment I start smoking, I start working. “¦ That way, no one could ever take it away from you. No one could ever say, “˜You fat, lazy piece of sh** stoner!”
