Seth Rogen had to make a ''diaper'' out of safety pins after suffering a wardrobe malfunction at the 2018 Golden Globe awards.

The 'Sausage Party' actor was waiting to go on stage at the annual ceremony, which was held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in California in January, to give a speech about Best Motion Picture nominee 'The Disaster Artist' when he had a ''horrible'' mishap and accidentally split his trousers.

He recalled: ''I bent down to pick up something, and I blew out my pants from, like, the very front to the very back. Like, chaps. I chapped them.''

The quick-thinking star grabbed ''a rack'' of 15 safety pins and ran to the bathroom to carry out a temporary repair, and was called out on stage just as his fastened the final one.

He told talk show host Seth Meyers: ''I just saw a stylist, I think it was Felicity Jones -- her stylist, and I just literally just grabbed like a rack of safety pins, went into the bathroom, took my pants off, turned them inside out, pinned them with 15 safety pins all up, making like a metallic stitching thing from the base of my butt to the top of my crotch.

''And then the second I fastened the last one, they were like 'We're ready for you on stage' and I went out with essentially, like, a diaper made of safety pants holding my pants together.''

And after new changes to the Academy Awards were announced on Thursday (09.08.18), the 36-year-old star joked he should be in the running for an accolade.

After the host said he should be rewarded for his ''technical achievement'', he quipped: ''It's true! I think they announced a new Oscar category for it, actually. That could be one of those.''
