Seth Rogen speaks out for Alzheimer's

Feb 26 2014, 8:18pm CST | by

Seth Rogen poked fun at his love of marijuana while testifying before a US Senate subcommittee.

The 31-year-old actor, who has frequently spoken of his fondness for the drug, visited Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. on Wednesday (02.26.14) to voice his support for legislation to increase funding for Alzheimer's disease, which his mother-in-law, Adele Miller, was diagnosed with at an early age.

Speaking at the hearing, the 'Pineapple Express' star said: "First I should answer the question that I assume many of you are asking - yes, I am aware this has nothing to do with the legalization of marijuana. In fact, if you can believe it, this concerns something that I find even more important.

"I started dating my wife Lauren nine years ago when her mother was almost 54 years old. It was during this trip, the first time I met my now mother-in-law, that Lauren first admitted to herself and then to me that something was off with her mother.

"Soon after this trip at 55 years old Lauren's mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's."

The 'Knocked Up' star praised his father-in-law for making Adele comfortable as her disease progresses and opened up about his decision to start his own fund, 'Hilarity for Charity,' to support other families and research on the illness.

He said: "That's right, the situation is so dire, that it caused me, a lazy, self-involved, generally self-medicated man-child, to start an entire charity organization."

He added: "I came here today for few reasons. One I'm a huge 'House of Cards' fan. ... Two, people need more help. I've personally witnessed the massive amount of financial strain this disease causes. ... Three, to show people they are not alone, so few people share their personal stories."

Ben Affleck also spoke about the Democratic Republic of Congo at Capitol Hill on Wednesday.

10 Underrated Comedians Who Deserve A Turn In The Spotlight

Nov 2 2014 8:00am CST | Source: Crushable

Now, a lot of these people may seem too famous to be considered ‘underrated’.

Here are a few talented alternatives for the next star-making comedy vehicle written for Seth Rogen. More »10 Underrated Comedians Who Deserve A Tu ...

Lizzy Caplan: ‘I don’t want to sacrifice my own goals to be a mother’

Oct 6 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I fell for Lizzy Caplan during Season 1 of Masters of Sex. She managed to seem authentic for that 1950s period, yet she maintained vibe of “she was way ahead of her time.” Plus, Caplan’s acting that first season was splendid. The second season? Caplan’s acting was fine – if anything, they gave her more to do in the second season. But I’m still trying to figure out how I feel about the second season in general, because I think the writers real ...
