Fans of Conan O'Brien have been waiting for weeks for the return of their beloved "Coco" to television. During last night's "second annual first show" of his new late night series Conan, devotees were treated to O'Brien's brand of off-kilter humor -- and one heck of a story from guest Seth Rogen!
Rogen, 28, who stopped by to promote his upcoming comic book flick The Green Hornet (due in theaters January 2011) had plenty more to talk about than just playing a svelte super hero! When asked by O'Brien about his recent engagement to longtime girlfriend Lauren Miller, the star (over!) shared the details of the proposal.
Like many guys preparing to pop the question, Rogen admits he was incredibly nervous. "Literally, I felt like someone had given me like a truckload of heroin to hold onto. I felt like the feds were going to kick in my door at any second," the actor joked. "I couldn't have a conversation with my girlfriend. All I could think of was this ring. Like, 'Don't say Lord of the Rings! Don't mention anything about a ring!'"
Rather than wait for the right moment, Rogen opted for right that very second. Unfortunately for the 28-year-old Miller (who has appeared in some of her fiance's movies, such as Superbad and Zack and Miri Make a Porno), she was in their closet getting changed!
"She was literally only in her underpants and her boobs were out," Rogen recalls. "I’d already kind of started, and I was like ‘Oh man, her boobs are out! That’s not part of the plan!'...I didn’t picture it like this, and I know she didn’t picture it like this. No little girl is like 'It’ll happen in a closet with my t***ies out.'"
And, to round out the raunchy tale, Rogen joked that he placed the ring on his bride-to-be's chest.
In September, when the pair got engaged, a friend of Miller's told Life & Style magazine that Rogen "surprised her with the proposal." We'd sure say so!
