Seth Rogen confirms Emma Watson walked off ‘This Is the End’ set after refusing to shoot Channing Tatum gimp scene

Seth Rogen has confirmed rumors that Emma Watson quit filming her 2013 apocalypse film ‘This Is the End’ after refusing to shoot a particularly wild scene, but added that there was no resentment afterwards.

The scene in question was one of the most graphic in the film, featuring Danny McBride as a cannibal who has Channing Tatum on a leash as a gimp.

The rumour, started by an unconfirmed account from an extra on set (and later mentioned by James Franco in Interview magazine), details that Watson did not feel comfortable shooting the scene and left. .

Speaking to British GQ for its May issue, Rogen responded to the interviewer bringing up the rumor saying, “I mean, I don’t look back 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 like what you thought it was.” But it wasn’t a terrible end to our relationship. She’s Came back the next day to say goodbye. She helped promote the movie. No hard feelings and I couldn’t be happier with how the movie turned out in the end.”

Rogen went on to say that Watson may have been right that the scene was too outrageous and that influenced the final cut: “She was probably right. It was probably funnier the way we ended up doing it. .”

Insider has reached out to representatives for Watson for comment.

Watson had the longest celebrity appearance on “This Is The End,” which made it a point to be littered with it. Other stars who have made cameo appearances include Rihanna, Mindy Kaling and Aziz Ansari.

Tatum himself also just had a role in the film as a gimp. He told Conan O’Brien in 2014 that he received an email from Rogen late at night asking him to be in the film and “must have been on Ambien and drunk” when he agreed.

“It was a terrible idea, probably,” he said.
