The plot thickens. The latest development in the Stormy Daniels–President Donald Trump saga comes from an unlikely corner: Seth Rogen.
Rogen, 35, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday, claiming that he and Daniels go way back, and that he’d heard about her alleged affair with the Trump nearly a decade ago.
- “I’ve known Stormy Daniels a long time, and I’ll be honest, she may have mentioned some of this stuff around 10 years ago,” Rogen said. “At the time, when you ask a porn star who they’ve been sleeping with and the answer was Donald Trump, it was like the least surprising thing that she could’ve said.”
- Daniels appeared in two of Rogen’s films, Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, where she played a stripper and a porn star.
- He added that, at the time, he didn’t realize what huge repercussions the story would have.
- “Again it wasn’t — at the time — wasn’t that surprising and then, as [Trump’s] campaign rolled out, it became clear that no one cared about anything he did,” Rogen said. “So, it didn’t really occur to me even that it would come out or that anyone would care about it, but then when I saw it, I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, Stormy told us all about that.’ ”
