Hollywood actor Seth Rogen has confessed he is delighted to have been name-checked in one of Nicki Minaj's worse verses.

The 35-year-old comedy actor took to Twitter after the New York-born rap star made reference to him in her verse for the new Fergie single 'You Already Know'.

Seth wrote on the micro-blogging website:

Seth is a long-time fan of hip-hop music and has previously parodied Kanye West's 'Bound 2' music video with the help of his Hollywood pal James Franco.

On the new track, Nicki raps: "I-I got these hoes scared to pass, I got that intercept flow/I made a movie like Seth Rog. (sic)"

And Nicki eventually replied to Seth's original tweet, telling the actor he is her "hero".

Last month, meanwhile, Seth celebrated the 10th anniversary of his hit movie 'Superbad' by revealing some of the film's secrets.

At the start of a series of movie-related tweets, Seth wrote: "I'll answer some Superbad questions if anyone has any.

"Some Superbad trivia for its ten year anniversary. (sic)"

Then, Seth started to lift the lid on some of the lesser-known aspects of the movie, revealing that fellow comedian Danny Mcbride served as an extra in one particular scene.

Seth wrote: "Danny Mcbride is an extra in the background of the first party scene in Superbad.

"Evan Goldberg's brother Dave drew all the d**k drawings in Superbad.

"Almost all the names in Superbad are people we went to high school with and lots of the stuff in the movie really happened to us (sic)"
