Seth Rogen and Stormy Daniels go way back — so far back, in fact, that Rogen says he had the dirt on her alleged affair with President Trump years ago.
The actor and comedian said Monday he was well aware of the porn star’s tryst with Trump because she told him about it a decade ago.
“I’ve known Stormy Daniels a long time and I’ll be honest — she may have mentioned some of this stuff around 10 years ago. At the time when you ask a porn star who they’ve been sleeping with and the answer was Donald Trump, it was like the least surprising thing that she could’ve said,” Rogen said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Daniels had bit parts in two Rogen movies — “Knocked Up” in 2007 and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” in 2005. She played a stripper and a porn star, respectively.
Though the comedian was sitting on the type of scoop that some members of the Washington press corps would kill for, he never thought of telling anyone else.
“Again, at the time, it wasn’t that surprising. And then as his campaign rolled out, it became clear that no one cared about anything he did, and so it didn’t really occur to me even that it would come out or that anyone would care about it,” Rogen said.
His memory was jogged when the adult film actress went public about the affair.
“But then when I saw it I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, Stormy told us all about that,’” he told Ellen.
Rogen added that he hadn’t seen his one-time co-star in years, but joked that she’s “clearly done well with herself.”

Daniels — whose real name is Stephanie Clifford — has been making headlines since January, when reports emerged that she’d been paid $ 130,000 in hush money from Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen to keep quiet about an alleged affair she had with the future President in 2006.
Daniels has filed a civil lawsuit looking to void the 2016 agreement because she says Trump never signed it.
During a recent “60 Minutes” show the porn star told Anderson Cooper that she met the future President during a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.
She said that she went back to Trump’s hotel room and before having sex, he dropped his pants and she swatted his behind with a rolled-up magazine that had his photo on the cover.
The alleged tryst happened just weeks after Trump’s wife Melania gave birth to their son Barron.
