Hollywood star Seth Rogen has shared his opinion on Canadian teen superstar Justin Bieber, calling the star 'a dick' after an uncomfortable meeting between the two.

In an interview with US DJ Howard Stern on his radio show, Rogen said that he had met the teen terror twice and that both times the 'Baby' singer had managed to be rude. He then went on to contrast the singer to Zac Efron who he worked with on his new movie Neighbours, saying that unlike Bieber he was full of humility. 

Speaking of Bieber, Rogen said: "He's a good example of someone you meet, who you think you're going to hate him, and then you get to hate him as much as you thought. You meet him, and he meets up to every one of your [bad] expectations of how you hope he will be."

He then went on to tell Stern about the time the two where on a German chat show together and Bieber's entourage requested he meet the singer. 

"It was weird, I was like, 'Sure, I’ll meet him.' So I went outside to meet him and he was acting like I asked to meet him! It was very nonchalant, 'Yo man. Sup,' and I'm like, 'What the f*ck, I don't want to meet you. Don't act all nonplussed to meet me. I didn't want to meet you! I was totally cool not meeting you! ... But I was like, fine, I wouldn’t have said anything, I was like, 'Aye, he's a bit of a motherfucker. He's young, the kid's a dick.'"

Then at the MTV Awards things seemed to get worse: "He literally had a snake wrapped around his fucking wrist that he was wearing. I was like, what the fuck?" Rogen laughed. "And I talked to him for like five minutes and I just remember thinking, 'Fuck this kid.'"

"When I met Zac Efron, one of the most endearing things is that he recognized that he as a Disney star, and I as a man in my late 20s/early 30s, would fu*king hate him. Why wouldn't I?" Rogen continued.

"Justin Bieber had zero percent of that. No humility, no awareness, no sense that, 'Since I appeal to young, young people, maybe a grown man who works in comedy doesn’t give a shit about me? And maybe I should act in such a way that maybe this isn't the greatest experience of his fucking life to meet me?' And I just remember thinking he's a piece of shit."
