Seth Rogen has revealed his trademark “stoner” laugh is actually fake, and he just uses it to make people think he’s friendly.
The actor confessed to a fan behind the scenes of a promotional tour for his new flick Long Shot: “It’s just part of my act.”
His admission comes after years of online abuse accusing him of faking his honking laugh to make fans think he’s like his trademark on-screen laid-back stoner characters.
A source told RadarOnline.com that “Seth is always being asked behind the scenes if his laugh is real.”
“After a recent interview, he told one fan who asked him during a private conversation that it has just become part of his nice-guy act and is put on a lot of the time for effect,” added the insider.
Online forums dedicated to slating Rogen, 37, over his laugh include one titled: “Everyone is finally sick of Seth Rogen's stupid, obviously fake stoner laugh shtick.”
One fan wrote on the forum: “His new Netflix special is cringeworthy. So, so bad.”
A forum on Reddit also asks: “Does anybody else think Seth Rogen’s laugh is fake?” prompting remarks including: “I think it’s nervous laughter.”
