During a promotional pit stop on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, Seth Rogen let his rejection flag fly…and our morning (and now yours) has been made all the funnier for it.
Remembering his first time on Kimmel's couch, which just so happened to coincide with the talk-show debut of a then-unknown Fox, Rogen recounted how he graciously agreed, at the nervous actress' personal behest, to stay on stage throughout her segment.
When she came out, adhering to proper male guest protocol, Rogen attempted to plant a kiss on Fox (the cheek), which is when all humiliating hell broke loose.
"I'm thinking, 'When in my life am I ever gonna get to kiss this woman? Now's my chance,' " Rogen said.
"And so I tried to do it, and to my memory, she physically stopped me from doing it and basically rejected me on television."
Ever the archivist, Kimmel wasted no time in replaying the tape—in gloriously agonizing slow motion, no less—for his squirming guest.
"That was so much worse than I remember," Rogen said. "It's way more embarrassing than I remember it being."
Megan Fox may have rejected Seth Rogen, but will you? Not if you read our review of Funny People, you won't!
