Seth Rogen has addressed rumors that Emma Watson stormed off set while filming This Is The End.

Reports suggested that the actress had taken issue with a scene in the 2013 movie – which Rogen directed.

During an interview with British GQ earlier this week, the 38-year-old was asked whether the claims were true and he appeared to claim they were.

He told the publication: "I mean, I don’t look back on that and think, ‘How dare she do that?’ You know...it was not some terrible ending to our relationship.

"She came back the next day to say goodbye. She helped promote the film. No hard feelings and I couldn’t be happier with how the film turned out in the end."

It was believed that Watson had taken issue with a scene in which Danny McBride assumed the role of a cannibal and Channing Tatum wore a gimp mask.

But Rogen has since seemingly backtracked and taken to social media to "correct" the false narrative that has since arisen.

Taking to Twitter, he shared a screenshot of a notes app statement, stating once and for all that Watson did not "storm off set".

He wrote:

"I want to correct a story that has emerged from a recent interview I gave. It misrepresents what actually happened. Emma Watson did not ‘storm off the set’ and it’s sh****y that the perception is that she did.

"The scene was not what was originally scripted, it was getting improvised, changed drastically and was not what she agreed to. The narrative that she was in some way uncool or unprofessional is complete bull***t.

"I for sure should have communicated better and because I didn’t, she was put in an uncomfortable position"

Rogen added: "It was overall a sh***y situation and it must have been hard for her to say something and I’m very happy and impressed that she did. We agreed on her not being in the scene together.

"I was thrilled for the opportunity to work with her and would be thrilled to get that opportunity again. I am very sorry and disappointed it happened, and I wish I had done more to prevent it."

This Is The End marked Rogen's directorial debut for him and his collaborator Evan Goldberg.
