Seth Rogen stopped by The Late Show on Friday to chat about work, Canada's marijuana legalization, and the time he shut down Paul Ryan's selfie request in front of his own kids.

The actor told Stephen Colbert that earlier this month he shared an incredibly awkward moment with the Speaker of the House at Mitt Romney's annual political summit in Park City, Utah. 

Ryan and his sons, all fans of Rogen, approached him at the event to ask for a selfie but Rogen wasn't having it.

"My whole body puckered, as it were. I tensed up. And I didn’t know what to do!" Rogen explained. After Ryan shook the actor's hand and requested a picture, Rogen said, "No way, man!" before proceeding absolutely drag Ryan in front of his kids.

"...I couldn’t stop," Rogen told Colbert. "I said, 'Furthermore, I hate what you're doing with the country at this moment, and I’m counting the days till you no longer have one iota of the power that you currently have.'"

Despite the lack of love for the House Speaker, Rogen said Ryan's kids seemed perfectly fine, so at least there's that.
