Porn star Stormy Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, has hit the headlines in recent months after details of her alleged affair with Donald Trump emerged.
One person who wasn’t surprised at all by the revelations was Seth Rogen. He had hired Daniels to work on Knocked Up and The-40-Year-Old Virgin in the mid-2000’s and remembered talking to her about the whole thing at the time.
“I’ve known Stormy Daniels a long time and I’ll be honest — she may have mentioned some of this stuff around 10 years ago. At the time, when you ask a porn star who they’ve been sleeping with, and the answer was Donald Trump, it was like the least surprising thing she could have said," Rogen told Ellen DeGeneres.
“And, so yeah, she had mentioned it actually. She did mention it and again, at the time, it wasn’t that surprising.”
“In our movies, there [were] two scenes in strip clubs and we realized it was easier to hire porn stars to play strippers rather than get actresses to play strippers who were not in porn,” he said.
“For Stormy, that was the easiest thing she did all week. If your goal is to be a more mainstream actress, it’s perhaps a step down. But for Stormy, it seemed lateral at worst and perhaps an easy day on set,” he added jokingly.
