Seth Rogen is following in the famous footsteps of Marilyn Monroe, Pamela Anderson, and the Girls Next Door. In the April issue of Playboy, he appears on the cover, and RadarOnline.com has the pic.
In the accompanying interview, Rogen says he’s hoping to become a trendsetter for Jewish guys who look like him. He joked: “Woody Allen created a look for small, nebbishy Jews, and I’m doing the same for chubby Jewish guys. I created a new look for rotund Jews. I have seen more guys lately who kind of look like me. It’s an easily attainable look.”
The 26-year-old star is now starting to shake off his “chubby” image, and the now slimmed-down Rogen tells Playboy that the location of his new comedy, Observe and Report, played a large part in his recent weight drop. Rogen said: “We shot the movie in Albuquerque, which is at a very high altitude. I’m somebody who can barely breathe in Los Angeles, which is at sea level. There were some big action scenes. Every day it felt as if I were climbing Everest.”
Rogen is only the ninth man in the magazine’s 56 year history to have his mug on the cover.
