Seth Rogen has spoken out to clarify comments he made about Emma Watson in a recent interview. The actors starred in 2013 comedy This Is The End and Seth was asked about a rumour suggesting the Harry Potter actor had walked off the set while filming a cameo, and he seemingly confirmed it was true.

"I mean, I don’t look back on that and think, 'How dare she do that?' You know? I think sometimes when you read something, when it comes to life it doesn’t seem to be what you thought it was," Seth told GQ magazine.

Seth went on to say that it was "not some terrible ending to our relationship. She came back the next day to say goodbye. She helped promote the film. No hard feelings and I couldn’t be happier with how the film turned out in the end."

After seeing the quotes widely reported and publications claiming the rumours were true, Seth jumped on Twitter last night to "correct" the story because it "misrepresents what actually took place". "Emma Watson did not ‘storm off the set’ and it’s shitty that the perception is that she did," he wrote.

He explained that the scene, which featured Danny McBride as a cannibal holding Channing Tatum on a leash, was different to what was originally scripted and had "changed drastically", and it wasn't what Emma had agreed to.

"The narrative that she was in some way uncool or unprofessional is complete bullshit. I for sure should have communicated better and because I didn't, she was put in an uncomfortable position," he said.

"It was overall a shitty situation and it must have been hard for her to say something and I’m very happy and impressed that she did. We agreed on her not being in the scene together," he added. "I was thrilled for the opportunity to work with her and would be thrilled to get that opportunity again."

He finished the statement: "I am very sorry and disappointed it happened, and I wish I had done more to prevent it."

Emma's got every right to refuse to be part of something she didn't sign up to or didn't feel comfortable with, so we're glad to see Seth speak out to set the record straight.
