Seth Rogen recalls he was 'humiliated' in failed attempt to meet Beyonce: ‘Was hit so hard by her security guard'
The incident took place at a previous Grammys Awards when actor Seth Rogen had rushed to meet singer Beyonce only to be stopped by her security.
Actor Seth Rogen recently spoke about his attempt at meeting singer Beyonce, which was not successful.
The two-time Golden Globe nominee recalled feeling "humiliated" after a run-in with Beyonce's bodyguard during a failed encounter with the pop icon at a previous Grammy Awards.
"I was at the Grammys, and I saw Beyonce with Gwyneth Paltrow actually and they were together," he recounted on E! News' Daily Pop.
He continued, "And I charged over. Instinct took over. I was hit so hard by her security guard that I spilled a drink. I was drinking a screwdriver, which is a bad drink. I deserved what I got ... I was humiliated and I didn't get to meet Beyonce."
Seth had to take the stage to present a Grammy and held his arms in "a very weird position" to cover his spilled screwdriver. Seth has also shared this awkward moment in his memoir, Year Book.
Seth previously recounted the story on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2019, after he and Beyonce lent their voices to Disney's 2019 live-action adaptation of The Lion King. "It was terrible," he said, before explaining that he'd learned his lesson before officially meeting her at the movie's premiere.
Seth said, "So I was wary of going near her because I look like someone who you would want to keep away from Beyonce in general. I waited for her to approach me, which they teach you. She was very nice and my beard actually got stuck in her sequin a little bit. If you look closely, you'll see some gray hair on her shoulder."

Seth and Beyonce co-starred in The Lion King with Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, JD McCrary and Alfre Woodard.
In 2019, Beyonce also released The Lion King: The Gift, the soundtrack album for The Lion King and and her visual album Black Is King.
And at the recent Grammy Awards, her 9-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter won her first gold gramophone for best music video for Brown Skin Girl.
