Seth Rogen has revealed the reason he and his wife Lauren Miller don’t want kids.
The 40-year-old Canadian actor tied the knot back in 2011, and although the couple share an adorable dog called Zelda, the Superbad actor confirmed that kids are a no go.
When asked by whether he and Miller will have kids in the future, Rogen quickly shut the question down, simply replying: “No.” See what else he had to say below:
Speaking to Howard Stern on his Howard Stern Show last year, Rogen elaborated on how he can take on so many projects: “The answer is, I don’t have kids. If people are like, ‘how do you do pottery and write a book and make all these movies and TV shows?’ It’s that I don't have kids, I have nothing else to do.”
The This is the End actor also told Stern that Miller wants kids ‘even less than he does’, adding: “The thing is, I think I could wrap my head around it [having kids], but I think she’s just like uh no.”
He went on: “We have so much fun. I don’t know anyone who gets as much happiness out of their kids as we get out of our non-kids.”
Sharing his own experience of parenthood, Stern said: “It’s not an easy haul having kids. You can’t be narcissistic, you have to give yourself over to parenting, and they’ve gotta be the priority.”
“Yeah, I don’t want that. That does not sound fun to me,” Rogen said in response.
Elsewhere, Rogen left Superbad fans disappointed when he confirmed he’d ‘never’ do a sequel.
More than fifteen years on from its release, Superbad is pretty much as popular as ever and fans have been clamouring for a spin-off or a sequel for years.
However, speaking to LADbible in 2020, Rogen poured cold water on the idea - simply because the first one was so perfect a redo isn’t required.
He said: "I think of all the movies we've ever made, Superbad is the one I'd 100 percent probably never touch.
Adding: "Honestly, I don't think it requires improvement or anything to be built upon it. I'm unbelievably proud of it, it really holds up - people still watch it, high school kids come up to me telling me that they watched it for the first time and how they loved it. It's worked its way into being viewed as one of the better high school movies that's out there.
"I'm so terrified of subtracting from it in any way with a bad sequel or spin-off that I'd never do it. I have so few actual good accomplishments that I'm horrified to f**k with the ones I have.”
