Eminem’s cameo in ‘The Interview’ may be the funniest one we’ve ever seen! The much talked about moment, when the rapper jokingly admits he’s gay, is movie magic. And HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned who came up with the brilliant idea!

We were shocked to see Eminem, who has previously been attacked for using vulgar lyrics towards the gay community, jokingly admit he’s a homosexual during a cameo in The Interview. But that’s probably why it’s so funny! It was brilliant and hilarious and now we’ve EXCLUSIVELY learned who came up with the concept for the 42-year-old rapper’s funny opening scene.

Eminem’s Cameo In ‘The Interview’ — How The Funny Gay Scene Came Together

“Eminem’s cameo was all the director, Evan Goldberg‘s, idea. But with Seth Rogen‘s help, they got it all figured out and OK’d by Eminem. They all thought it was brilliant and hilarious. Evan was the one who opened the door on discussions, though, after the idea was hatched,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Interestingly, the cameo was sort of in the works for years.

“Evan has a history with Sasha Baron Cohen — they worked together on Da Ali G Show and they remained close. Also, Eminem went and did that stunt at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards with Sasha during the time of Bruno’s release. So everyone was already connected in one way or another. The relationships led to everyone doing the fun bit in The Interview because they knew it would be one of the funniest things in the movie. So it was formed by previous relationships and it’s great that everything worked out, but Evan should get the credit for getting the ball rolling,” our source added.

We’re glad we know who to give credit to now because Eminem’s scene was one of the funniest in the movie, which also stars James Franco. Even Eminem’s fans think so!
