Seth Rogen attempted to meet Beyoncé and ended up with a stained suit.
Although Rogen and the “Formation” singer had roles in the Disney remake of The Lion King, at the time the co-stars never met or worked together.
“I saw Beyoncé at the Grammys with Gwyneth Paltrow actually and they were together,” he recalls to E! Online. “I charged. Instinct took over.”
Queen Bey’s security team prevented him from approaching the couple.
“I was hit so hard by his security guard that I spilled a glass,” he continued. “I got what I deserved … I was humiliated and couldn’t meet Beyoncé.”
Unfortunately, the blow spilled his screwdriver cocktail all over his costume. He was supposed to present an award to the Grammys, but he managed to hide the stain from the cameras by carefully placing his arms.
Rogen said his new memoir, “Year Book,” goes into more detail about the meeting.
“That’s not all. There’s more but it’s probably more than I should have written,” Rogen admitted.
Eventually, Rogen met the iconic singer. He recounted their meeting and his first failed attempt to meet on Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in 2019.
“It was terrible,” he said, before sharing his real moment with Beyoncé. Rogen said his wife was “losing her mind” at the time. Instead of being the first to approach her, he hoped and waited for her to come to him backstage.
“I wasn’t going to join her, mostly out of fear. The last time I approached her was at the Grammys about eleven years ago… it was terrible,” he shared.
“So I was afraid to approach her because I look like someone you would want to keep away from Beyoncé in general,” Rogen said. “I waited for her to approach me, what they tell you. She was very sweet and my beard actually got a bit stuck in her glitter. If you take a closer look you will see gray hair on his shoulder.
