Seth Rogen: ‘This is the end’ inspired me to ‘get into’ design


Rogen names his pottery creations after movies like “Point Break” and “Demolition Man.”

Filming a doomsday comedy prepared Seth Rogen to expand his pottery business during the pandemic lockdown.

“When we did ‘This Is The End’, what was funny was that we built a house – like everything was in that house, and me and my writing and directing partner, Evan [Goldberg] i got really into furniture, furniture design, fixtures, lighting and materials, and all of a sudden it was kind of the first time i ever shamelessly gave myself permission to really love this stuff in so many ways,” said the founder of cannabis homewares and accessories Houseplant. vogue. “That movie was really what got me into it. But I always collected stuff.

He added of the sale of his designs, “I have no desire to hoard these things for myself.”

“This Is the End” co-starred Jonah Hill, James Franco, Michael Cera, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel in the 2013 comedy.

Rogen, who now stars in “The Fabelmans” and Emmy-nominated “Pam & Tommy”, noted that he used to read Juxtapose magazine in the 1990s which “became a weird backdoor to the high-end art and design in some ways, because a lot of these artists that I started following – Faile and Shepard Fairey, and KAWS – kind of transitioned into that world.

Rogen’s latest venture is Handmade by Seth with four quirky vases named after “Point Break” and “Demolition Man” characters up for auction. Rogen also modeled a lighter after his King Charles Cavalier Zelda, which will soon be on sale on his website.

Rogen isn’t the only actor with an interest in pottery, either: Brad Pitt has expressed his love for UK reality competition series ‘The Great Pottery Throw Down’ and unveiled nine sculptures at an art museum. Finnish earlier this year.

“It feels good,” Pitt said at the opening of the exhibit. “For me, it’s a question of introspection. It’s about knowing where I went wrong in my relationships, where did I misstep, where am I complicit. For me, it was born out of having what I call a radical inventory of myself, getting really brutally honest with myself and taking into account those that I may have hurt, times that I just deceived.
