STORY & PHOTOS

Back when “Knocked Up” came out, the tagline was: “what if this guy got you pregnant?” Seth Rogen was seen as a schlubby stoner with a goofy laugh. He still has a goofy laugh, but these days he’s doing cool things like getting married and guest-starring on “Arrested Development” and “The Mindy Project” and speaking at congressional hearings. That being said, back when Seth’s character in “Knocked Up” got Katherine Heigl’s character pregnant, she was understandably freaked out.

Before she found out she was pregnant, the two had an awkward morning-after breakfast at Swingers Diner in Santa Monica:

It’s a real place and it’s near the Third Street Promenade, which is a fun place to stroll and shop.

My friend Alex and I grabbed brunch at Swingers while in Santa Monica, and it was delicious! I’d highly recommend it.
