HOLLYWOOD – Comedic actor and Steve Wozniak impersonator Seth Rogen opened up today to the Studio Exec about his radical food diet.
Seth Rogen has had a hard year with his appearance in a rare straight role co-starring with Michael Fassbender in Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs and appearing once more alongside Zac Efron for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
You look great Seth. What’s going on?
Well, I knew that this year was going to be a tough one for me. I had a lot of challenges to confront and frankly after The Interview I’d begun to take a new perspective on life. It was time to get myself in shape so I started to think about it properly.
So what did you do?
I went on a special food diet.
Sounds crazy, what does it involve?
You have to eat food. Breakfast: food. Lunch: food. Dinner more food.
I know it’s pretty strict. Of course I can, if I feel hungry in-between ‘meals’, I can have a snack but it has to be food.
So it’s basically food, food, food.
That’s right. Of course I can drink sometimes as well, but if I do it is only liquids, fluids, that sort of thing.
Sounds very strict.
It is but you can see the results and standing next to Zac Efron, I don’t have anything to worry about this time around. I think people are going to be really surprised.
This is Christian Bale like dedication to your craft.
It is on the scale of the Machinist. Yes. Or Night Crawler.
How do you keep your sanity?
Every week I have one cheat day.
Ah ha! And what do you have on your cheat day?
Wool. I just go and hit the wool stores. I buy like two barrels of that shit and I just wolf it down. But because of the food diet my body is fooled into thinking it’s food and so it doesn’t effect my diet.
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising will be released in 2016.
