All hail Queen Bey! During a guest appearance on Wednesday episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! , Seth Rogen told the story of how Beyoncé received a "standing ovation for just existing" at the world premiere of The Lion King .

It all happened when the film director, Jon Favreau, introduced the cast to the audience and invited each star to walk across the stage. As soon as he announced the Grammy winner name, everyone in the crowd started "losing their mind."

"Beyoncé was called out and the audience stood up and went crazy," Rogen recalled. "I was like, She is getting a standing ovation for just existing. Like, her mere presence was a reason to stand and go crazy, and I totally got it. I was like, Yeah, we should be celebrating. We made it. We are all in a room with Beyoncé. That is what you want." While Rogen knew the applause was primarily for the 37-year-old singer, he could not help but soak in the moment.

"I know they were not clapping for me, but I was on the stage, and I, for a brief moment, felt like what it must feel like to have that adulation," he continued. "All I was thinking was, Oh, people do not like me that much. I do not get one iota of this. No, I get, like, a smattering at best."

Billy Eichner Praises the Even Rogen admitted he was a little overwhelmed by Beyoncé presence. In fact, the 37-year-old actor waited until she approached him backstage—as he "was not going to go up to her mostly for fear." Actually, the last time Rogen did approach Beyoncé they were at the Grammys, and her security team "knocked [him] so hard" that he spilled his drink all over himself.

"I was wary of going near her because I look like someone who you would want to keep away from Beyoncé in general," he said. Although, it seemed like this interaction was much better. "She was very nice," he said. "My beard actually got stuck in, like, her sequins a little bit. If you look closely, you will see some gray hair on her shoulder."

In the remake, Rogen plays Pumbaa while Beyoncé plays Nala. The two even share a song credit. "It must be a big deal for her. So, i am happy," he quipped. "She worked hard." Fans can see The Lion King in theaters starting July 19.
