Bryan Cranston Confirms Checking In After Noticing Seth Rogen Was Way Too High at Golden Globes

Bryan Cranston is that dude.

The Breaking Bad star stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, where he confirmed that he did in fact intervene when he noticed that Seth Rogen was too high at the Golden Globes.

“There were two things that tipped him off that he was really not okay,” Cranston began at the 6 minute mark of the video above. “One he wasn’t laughing or talking to anyone, he was up against the wall just like smiling, and I thought I either call 911...and then the second thing he said, I think he thought I was Drew Barrymore, and I knew something was wrong.”

Rogen had previously spoken about this very same incident back in 2021, telling Jimmy Kimmel that he had been experimenting with the edibles he was concocting for his Houseplant weed company.

“I had one experience at the Golden Globes, actually, many years ago that was pretty bad, yeah,” Seth said. “Because the thing with edibles is, there have been times where I thought I was fine but I was not. And that’s what’s scary about edibles is you don’t even know what they’re doing to you. I was at the Golden Globes, which are a nightmare, so I had a weed lollipop throughout the show and I thought in my head, I was like, ‘I’m really high but I’m keeping it together.’ That was what I kept thinking in my head. I was like, ‘Man, this thing is fucking me up but at least I look and am acting totally normal.’”

He said the incident in question went down at an afterparty, where Cranston approached him to conduct a welfare check.

“I went to an afterparty and I saw Bryan Cranston, who I don’t know that well,” Rogen said. “But I saw him and the first thing he said to me was ‘Are you okay?’ which is an alarming question to be asked when you think you are okay … When you just think you’re doing good and someone looks at you, like very scared and says ‘Are you okay?’ it’ll really bring you back down to Earth.”

He continued, “That guy’s seen some things. If I was alarming to Walter White, I must have been fucked. And he said ‘Are you okay?’ and I turned around and left and I literally, I walked out of the hotel that the show was in and got in my car and I went home and I was like, no, the answer is, if you’re asking me, the answer’s no. I’m not okay. I’m getting the fuck out of here.”
