'Outsider' Seth Rogen

Seth Rogen still feels like an outsider in Hollywood.

Although he's one of the most successful comedy actors in the business, Seth - who has also written movies including 'Superbad', 'Pineapple Express' and 'The Interview' - admitted he feels left out when awards season comes around because comedies rarely receive nominations.

He told Metro.co.uk: "Whenever awards season happens I sure feel like an outsider because no comedy ever gets nominated for any awards in any way, shape of form.

"There's a hierarchy in Hollywood and comedy's at the bottom of it."

However, Seth was delighted this year when his good friend, 'Anchorman' director Adam McKay won a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for 'The Big Short', calling it a "step in the right direction".

He said: "It's nice that Adam McKay won an Academy Award. That was like a huge step in the right direction, I think, and that movie ['The Big Short'] is actually really funny, but I for sure feel like an outsider in a lot of ways because yeah I don't get invited to those cool parties."
