Actor Seth Rogen has waged war on the creator of Entourage after his looks were mocked on the hit TV show.

In a recent episode of the series, the characters referred to Rogen's "oddly fascinating" ugliness.

They also discussed whether the funnyman could ever win a date with a woman like actress Katherine Heigl, his love interest in Knocked Up.

Rogen was fuming after hearing the remarks, calling the show's creator Doug Ellin a "moron" and vowing never to watch the TV series.

He says, "Yeah, those guys are a**holes. I actually ran into (Entourage actor) Kevin Dillon in a Starbucks. And he’s like, ‘You know, I’ve got to kind of apologize because apparently the guy who created our show doesn’t like you so much.’

"I said, ‘Well, I have reason to believe because I think (creator) Doug Ellin is a moron from all I can understand, so it makes sense he doesn’t like me.’

"I’ve kind of said some disparaging things about the show. Although, in our defense, (producer) Mark Wahlberg called us misogynistic in an interview, so I think they kind of started that (battle). It’s on. Luckily I never have and never plan on watching Entourage.”
