Seth Rogen at the 5th annual 'Hilarity for Charity' Los Angeles Variety Show: Seth Rogen's Halloween at Hollywood Palladium - Los Angeles, California, United States - Saturday 15th October 2016
It was a moving speech, unfortunately many senators will only get to hear it online.
Most film fans probably know Seth Rogen as the slightly immature lead of films like Pineapple Express, Knocked Up and This Is The End. Real-life Rogen, however, had a serious problem on his mind, when he stood before a Senate committee to appeal for funding for Alzheimer’s care and research. Rogen shared the story of his mother in law, whose rapidly progressing Alzheimer educated the actor on the more severe, unseen effects of the disease. Peppering his speech with his trademark self-deprecating humor, Rogen also shared some of the work of Hilarity for Charity – an organization he and his wife started to educate young people about the effects of Alzheimer's. Rogen proudly explained that many college students are now starting their own fundraising campaigns to help Alzheimer's sufferers and their families.
Rogen and wife Lauren Miller started Hilarity for Charity, influenced by their own experience with Alzheimer's.
In a video, shared by ABC, Rogen said that before experiencing it firsthand, he was in the dark about the disease, thinking "it was something only really, really old people got" and involved "forgetting your keys and mismatched shoes."
After marrying Seth Rogen in 2011, Lauren Miller got to work writing a screenplay for the film 'For A Good Time, Call.', and started personally writing to stars asking for them to cameo. One response left her in tears.
Lauren Miller, the wife of film funny man Seth Rogen, was reportedly reduced to tears by the message from Ari Graynor, accepting a role in her movie. Miller co-wrote the upcoming film, 'For A Good Time, Call.', and decided to send out personal notes in order to ask stars to appear in cameos. Amongst these stars were director Kevin Smith and comedian Ken Marino. Yet the acceptance note she received from Graynor reportedly brought tears to her eyes.
Miller, who married Rogan in 2011, spoke to 'New York Magazine' to discuss the notes, saying: "I tried to be funny in those letters, but the letter I sent to Ari was more emotional, about how I've admired her work for years, and she has this incredible ability to be over-the-top funny yet retain this vulnerability and sexiness, even if she's pulling gum out of a toilet."
