Things didn't quite go to plan when Seth Rogen first tried to meet Beyoncé. In an interview with E! News' Daily Pop, where Rogen promoted his new memoir "Year Book," he said he was "humiliated" when he tried to introduce himself to the superstar at the Grammy Awards about 13 years ago.

"I was at the Grammys, and I saw Beyoncé with Gwyneth Paltrow actually and they were together," he said. "I charged over. Instinct took over, I was like, 'I've got to go say hi.'"

Rogen said Beyoncé's security guard spotted him rushing over, and intercepted him.

"I was hit so hard by her security guard that I spilled a drink," Rogen said. "I got what I deserved ... I was humiliated and I didn't get to meet Beyoncé."

Rogen then had to present an award on stage "about a second later," he said, so had to cover the stain the screwdriver cocktail had left on his suit by holding his arms in "a very weird position."

Rogen has been dining out on this story for some time. He recalled it back in July 2019 on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

"I look like someone who you would want to keep away from Beyoncé," he joked.

Despite a rocky start, the two actors are now friends, having starred as Pumbaa and Nala in the 2019 remake of "The Lion King" together.
