Rogen explained that adult film stars were the best option to film a naked scene in a movie. “It’s not a situation where you’re, like, convincing a mainstream actress to get n-ked,” he said. Theron, caught off guard by this revelation, responded with a surprised “What?!”

Appearing a bit uneasy at her response, Rogen said, “Don’t say it like that.” The Emmy nominee further explained that Daniels had quick cameos in Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. As the Fast X actress shook her head and said, “Wow!” Efron quipped in, asking, “You never told her.”

“[I was] incredibly intimidated to work with her, not just because of how talented she is,” he said, talking about Theron. Rogen further stated that he was “literally physically intimidated” by her presence, as “she murders people in every movie she does.”

However, he shared that they got along pretty well and have remained friends despite their movie’s box office failure. While their film received positive reviews, and both Theron and Rogen were praised for their chemistry, it underperformed at the box office, grossing $53 million on a $40 million budget.

Long Shot is available on Prime Video.
