Seth Rogen marries Lauren Miller in wine country wedding

Seth Rogen wedding to Lauren Miller

Seth Rogen's wedding to writer Lauren Miller took place Sunday in Sonoma, with the couple getting married in a hilltop ceremony capping three days in the Northern California wine country, according to widespread reports.

Rogen, 29, and Miller, 30, who've been together since 2004, were married by a female rabbi in a Jewish ceremony on a hilltop surrounded by vineyards at Kunde Estate, People said. The reception was held elsewhere on the property, with pictures showing the newlyweds seated in a white convertible for their ride to the party.

"The wedding was more laughs than anything else," a source told Us Weekly. "Every other line was a joke and the crowd couldn't contain their laughter."

That's hardly a surprise, with folks including Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, Jonah Hill, Adam Sandler, Paul Rudd and Craig Robinson in attendance.

The wedding was held the same weekend that "50/50," Rogen's cancer comedy with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, premiered to decent though not overwhelming box-office success. With seven years together already under their belts, the bride and groom would seem to face much better odds.

Cancer -- chicks dig it? In Seth Rogen's world, they just might.

Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anna Kendrick hit the red carpet in New York on Monday night for the premiere of "50/50," a comedy-drama that was inspired by real events around screenwriter Will Reiser's cancer diagnosis six years ago.

Reiser got through it, in part with the humor of his good friend Rogen, then wrote a comedy-drama about the experience when it was done. The "50/50" in the title refers to the odds of survival given to the movie's lead character.

Anjelica Huston, who plays mom to Gordon-Levitt's character, made the scene, as did director Jonathan Levine and screenwriter Reiser. Rogen and Reiser worked together on Sacha Baron Cohen's "Da Ali G Show" and the two have producer and exec producer credits on "50/50." Fiancee Lauren Miller was there on Rogen's arm.

Also spotted outside the Ziegfeld Theater: Kerry Butler of "Scrubs," "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" creator Julie Taymor, Keith Powell of "30 Rock," Bill Hader of "Saturday Night Live," T.V. Carpio of "Body of Proof," and singer Sean Lennon with Charlotte Kemp Muhl. An after-party was held at the Four Seasons Restaurant.

Tangentially, Gordon-Levitt, who plays the Reiser-inspired character, has been online collecting humorous stories of real-life tragedies to be adapted down the line, possibly, into short films. Or cartoons. Or musical numbers.

Or something like that. Couldn't hurt, right? With "50/50" opening Friday, there's at least a precedent.

'Kung Fu Panda 2' movie premiere: Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Seth Rogen laugh it up [Video]

Kungfupandagalleryslide Jack Black
described what it was like to find his "inner panda" at the "Kung Fu Panda 2" premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Sunday morning. Amid a carnival on Hollywood Boulevard that resembled an inflatable Shanghai, with an endless McDonald's breakfast buffet, Black displayed his animated Zen alongside co-stars Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu and James Hong (who was wearing a handmade noodle-bowl hat).

Also on the carpet: Brad Pitt, Dennis Haysbert, Danny McBride, Jean-Claude Van Damme, composer Hans Zimmer, screenwriters Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, and director Jennifer Yuh Nelson.

The sequel to the popular animated film, about fat kung fu panda prodigy Po (Black) from a noodle-making family, delves deeper into the cuddly hero's psyche and into adoption themes, which resonated with Jolie (tigress) and her family, many of whom are adopted.

"I saw it with all my children ... and they just loved it," she said. "Nothing was surprising to them, it just made them feel good that Po was also like them."

Black, on the other hand, was content to simply goof around. Striking kung fu pose after pose and waving amiably at fans lined up along the carpet, he joked that working in 3-D for the film was no different than his everyday life.

"I guess I'm always in 3-D," he said. "We're in 3-D right now."

The last to wander amiably down the carpet was a very jovial Hoffman (Shifu), who revealed that he had a hard time finding the requisite inner peace required to make the movie until he had to go to work after having a root canal.

"I finally found inner peace," he said. "Not from the root canal. From the drugs."

'Paul' movie premiere: Seth Rogen, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost get out of this world

Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig premiere 'Paul'

Alien-friendly actors Seth Rogen, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost abducted the red carpet for the Monday premiere of "Paul," their genre-mixing, extraterrestrial-and-a-road-trip movie.

Written by and starring "Hot Fuzz" masterminds Frost and Pegg, the film follows two British friends who visit Comic-Con International before roadtripping to visit famous UFO hot spots around the U.S. But on their journey, they encounter a real-life, wise-cracking alien, voiced by Rogen.

"We came up with the idea for 'Paul' on the set of 'Shaun of the Dead.' It was a way of making a movie somewhere the weather wasn't British," Pegg said in a live chat with Hero Complex on Tuesday. "It was kind of a joke but it struck a chord. We thought we might have something here."

Bill Hader, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost at the Paul premiere "Paul" pokes fun at the alien/sci-fi genre in the same vein that "Hot Fuzz" spoofed cop movies and "Shaun of the Dead" knocked zombie flicks.

The buddy comedy also stars Jason Bateman as Agent Zoil, who tries to capture Paul, and Kristin Wiig, who plays Ruth, a conservative Christian enlisted to help protect the animated alien. At the premiere, Wiig stepped out in a gorgeous black ruffled number.

"Glee's" Jane Lynch and "Saturday Night Live's" Bill Hader joined Rogen and Bateman on the red carpet at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. The two make appearances in the film as a diner owner and federal agent, respectively. Joe Lo Truglio, who reteamed with his "Superbad" director Greg Mottola in "Paul," and plays federal agent O'Reilly.

Liev Schreiber, who also previously worked with Mottola, in 1996's "The Daytrippers," joined Naomi Watts, Jeffrey Tambor, Blythe Danner, David Koechner and the rest of the comic-studded cast at the premiere. Click the pics for more photos from the red carpet.

"Paul" invades theaters March 18.

'The Green Hornet': Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Jay Chou at the premiere

Cameron Diaz is no stranger to butt-kicking -- she's played a sassy action heroine numerous times in such films as "Charlie's Angels" and "Knight and Day." But even though her latest movie is an action comedy, "The Green Hornet" with Seth Rogen and Jay Chou, Diaz doesn't get to do any stunts this time around.

Green-hornet-pictures "I didn't really get to do anything in this movie. They did it all," Diaz said at the film's premiere in Hollywood on Monday night, referring to her costars. "I went away to make 'Knight and Day' and I came back and they had made an action movie. And I had no idea."

Diaz, by her own admission, knew little about the past incarnations of "The Green Hornet," which began as a radio serial and later became a television show.

"I never really watched it, and they told me, 'Don't. Don't worry about it. We're going to be writing our own -- this is it's own thing. We're creating our own version of it," Diaz said.

Rogen, on the other hand, was very familiar with the superhero. He grew up with "The Green Hornet" and ultimately co-wrote the film, out Friday.

"It's pretty amazing that it's actually coming to fruition and that we actually like it," Rogen said of the project.

Rogen's right-hand man in the film, Kato, is played by Chou -- a Taiwanese pop-music superstar who has his first American movie role in "The Green Hornet." Chou walked down the green carpet with a translator, although he has learned a fair bit of English since he had his first meeting with the film's producers via Skype.

"It was strange," he recalled of the Internet meeting. "Very difficult because the language, English, it's a problem for me. So [I was] very nervous when I meet [the producers for the] first time. But right now, I fixed this. I speak English."

Cast members Edward James Olmos, Edward Furlong, Jamie Harris and David Harbour also hit the red carpet, as did the movie's director, Michel Gondry, with singer Becky Stark. The premiere was followed by an after-party at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

Also spotted: Judd Apatow, Sophia Bush, Garcelle Beauvais, Sara Rue, Michael Clarke Duncan with "The Apprentice" villain Omarosa Manigault Stallworth, Tom Green, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Shelby Young of "The Social Network."

"The Green Hornet" opens Friday in theaters. Click the pic of Diaz and Rogen, above, for pictures from the red carpet.

Seth Rogen is so engaged it's making him sick


Seth Rogen is engaged Seth Rogen is engaged to be married. Unfortunately, "The Green Hornet" actor is also suffering from a serious illness, treatable only by certain doctors in California.

"I have a very specific ailment," Rogen said Monday night on "Conan." "It's called, 'I ain't got no weed on me right now.'" Fortunately, he said, Prop. 19 or not, the weed doctor had just the prescription for that.

Rogen, Conan O'Brien's first interview on TBS, shared more than enough details about his proposal to longtime girlfriend Lauren Miller -- in their closet, her naked from the waist up, him feeling like he was in possession of a shipment of heroin.

"I didn't picture it like this," Rogen said, "and I know she didn't picture it like this."

The video's above, but please realize before you hit "play" that TBS' censors are a bit looser than NBC's were. You may be stuck with a mental picture you can never forget.

A slim Seth Rogen does Comic-Con like a gentleman

Seth-rogen-green-hornet-weight We've got to hand it to Seth Rogen -- not only is he looking like a leading man, he's carrying himself like one too.

The actor hit San Diego on Thursday in support of his Michel Gondry-directed flick, "The Green Hornet," showing off the dramatic weight loss he underwent to top-line the superhero adaptation. 

Popping into the Wired Cafe for an interview, Rogen was offered several spoils for free from high-end vendors in the joint.

"I try not to take as much free [stuff] as I can," Rogen was overheard saying, politely declining the swag. 

Classy, Rogen.

The "Knocked Up" star recently sat down with Geoff Boucher from our brother blog Hero Complex and touched on his torch for "Hornet."

"When I say it was a passion project, it wasn't passion for the Green Hornet as a character but a passion ... to make a movie about two guys trying to become superheroes, " Rogen said.

Rogen's been making rounds all over town, Thursday night popping in at the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 party to see Outkast's Big Boi perform.

Seth Rogen reads 'Ferdinand the Bull' live in Los Angeles

Who needs monstrous CGI animations voiced by a dozen celebs? Seth Rogen is giving it to you live.

Seth Rogen reads Ferdinand the BullOr at least he did Thursday night at Los Angeles' Colburn School, where the actor staged a live reading of children's classic "Ferdinand the Bull" with the Salastina Music Society. 

Artistic directors Maia Jasper and Kevin Kumar welcomed the "Funny People" star, who brought bumbling charm to the tale of a docile bull who'd rather smell flowers than fight in a ring.

Rogen attended with his girlfriend, writer Lauren Miller, and two pals. About 150 guests enjoyed the show in Colburn's Zipper Hall, then partied afterward with gourmet ice cream from Scoops.

Rogen will appear in the film "The Green Hornet" with Cameron Diaz, set for release in January 2011.

'A Night at Sardi's': Young Hollywood salutes 'sinfully sexy' septuagenarian Garry Marshall

Sardi1 Who doesn't know that Hollywood is the Vatican for youth worship? But every once in a while, the food chain flows in reverse, and old lions of the entertainment industry get their due, as they did in Beverly Hills on Thursday evening at the 18th annual "A Night at Sardi's."

Card-carrying members of young Hollywood Anne Hathaway, Chris Pine and Seth Rogen, as well as not-that-young-but-close-enough Demi Moore, turned out for the Alzheimer's Assn. benefit honoring veteran director Garry Marshall -- dubbed a "sinfully sexy Scorpio" by La Hathaway -- his sisters Penny and Ronny, and theater and Alzheimer's event producer Susan Dietz. Also honored was Soleil Moon Frye, whose 2004 documentary "Sonny Boy" explored her father's life and his struggle with Alzheimer's.

Garry Marshall's memories of his mother, who was also stricken with Alzheimer's, were somewhat less dewy-eyed. He described his mother, a dance teacher in the Bronx, as "the Simon Cowell of the Grand Concourse":

Sardi2 "She'd say, ‘You're the pretty girl with the fat legs. Don't dance ever.' At my birthday, she'd say, ‘Garry is celebrating 11 years of being round-shouldered.' When Penny had an overbite, she said, ‘When I want to open a Coke bottle, I do it with Penny's teeth.'"

Honestly, where else can you find such unabashed syrupy emotion in this town? No wonder emcee Rogen started sucking up to the "Valentine's Day" director as soon as he left the stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

"I want to work with him," said the "Funny People" star. "We can remake ‘Pretty Woman' with me, and we'll make it ‘Schlubby Dude.'"

Sardi4 Later, "Brothers and Sisters" hunk Gilles Marini, Eric McCormack, Sharon Lawrence, Samantha Harris, Lea Thompson, Steven Weber, Ken Howard and Michael Chiklis and Peter Gallagher and their daughters joined the glittery cast of a revue of music by "Cabaret" songwriters Kander and Ebb. David Hyde Pierce told the packed ballroom that John Kander wasn't there because he was "on an island somewhere" after opening his latest musical, "The Scottsboro Boys," off Broadway last week.

"It's a shocking, amazing earthquake of a show," Pierce said. "He's 83 and still pumping them out."

Sardi3 The Alzheimer's fundraiser was founded by co-chairs Laurie Burrows Grad--the daughter of humorist Abe Burrows--and her husband, Peter Grad, a former TV executive. Burrows died in 1985 after battling the disease.
