Seth Rogen: This Is Why I’m Hot

Earlier this week, we showed you new pictures of a noticeably slimmed-down Seth Rogen out and about in Los Angeles.

In a new interview, the Pineapple Express star talks about the decision to drop the weight. He first realized that he needed to adopt a healthier lifestyle when he filmed his latest flick Observe and Report in New Mexico last year.

“I’m somebody who can barely breathe in Los Angeles, which is at sea level. I can’t walk up a flight of stairs. Albuquerque is at an elevation of about two miles and the air is very thin. There were some big action scenes. Every day it felt as if I were climbing Everest. So the stunts were really hard, much harder than they should have been. I realized if I was going to make [his upcoming superhero flick] Green Hornet I needed to lose weight.”

He admitted, “Aside from how the character is supposed to look, I couldn’t physically make the movie in the shape I was in. It would have literally killed me.”

It sounds like he’s been dropping the weight in a healthy manner, and we’re proud of him!
