George Lucas does not believe the world will end in 2012, his people remain sarcastic while speaking for him

01.20.2011

A couple of days ago, I shared Seth Rogen's story concerning George Lucas' thoughts on 2012. According to Rogen, Lucas believed in the all mighty Mayan prophecy and Steven Spielberg was like, "He's lost his shit now." (He did not say that last part)

Lucas' people got ahold of the story real fast and have already denied it. Lucasfilm rep Lynne Hale said this on behalf of her boss, "I spoke with George. He was not serious when he talked about the end of the world in 2012 but he is an adamant believer that the world is flat, that Stonehenge was built by aliens, and that the sun revolves around the Earth. These are among the many subjects he commonly discusses at length with Elvis, who he’s going to digitally insert into Indy 5 along with a roster of famous dead actors.” Well, there's not an ounce of heavy sarcasm in that statement, is there?

In the last part of Rogen's story, he had this thought, "If you’re George Lucas and you actually think the world is gonna end in a year, there’s no way you haven’t built a spaceship for yourself…. So I asked him…, ‘Can I have a seat on it?’”

Answer is no. That shit got shut down quick. Hale said this, “Seth Rogen is a funny guy but George and Steven are taking Chris Rock with them on the Millennium Falcon!” I have to disagree Ms. Hale. I think they're taking Samuel L. Jackson. Also to remind everyone, I do not think Lucas ruined my childhood. This is a follow-up for those who were wondering if the original story was bullshit.

So in the end it was all big mix-up and Rogen misread Lucas.

I had my hopes that he was serious. That way he might greenlight a third trilogy for someone else while he hides in a million dollar bomb shelter.

who cares

lucas made a life out of only 1 genius movie that he directed, and rogen made a life by surrounding himself with people that are funny rather than actually being funny himself. so with that in mind.... wait whoa... nevermind. who cares? lucas is a whack job and sethe rogens not funny on his own. thats all that matters

Rogen was high as fuck

Seth Rogen was clearly high as fuck at this meeting and probably start bugging out when George started rambling sarcastically. Love 'em both and this seems to be the most obvious reason why Rogen thought he was serious.

Dude, Rogen is a major pot head and pot heads don't "bug out" when they are stoned. They are so incredibly used to being perpetually stoned that they act normal. It's when they ARENT stoned, that they usually act funny.

A publicist with a sense of humour, I like it!

Anyone else notice that she also debunked that story from a while ago about Lucas making a film with CGI famous dead actors?
