Kanye West asked Seth Rogen and James Franco to perform their spoof version of his music video at his wedding to Kim Kardashian.

Seth took on the role of Kim, baring his hairy back and batting his eyelashes at the camera, while James mimed along to Kanye's rap in their own take on the Bound 2 music video, which featured Kim on a motorbike topless.

Now it has emerged that Kanye asked the actors to re-enact the spoof live before the couple's nuptials in Paris on May 24.

James told The View: "We did get feedback. Kim loved the video and we didn't hear back from Kanye - we kind of felt like he's not bashing us, but he probably hates it and he's just not going to say anything.

"But then two weeks ago we got a call from Kanye. Seth and I were on the phone and we thought he was going to let us have it, but he loved it and not only that, I think I can say it now because I'm pretty sure it's not going to happen, he wanted us to perform it live the night before his wedding at Versailles."

But the star said that the re-enactment wouldn't happen.

"I think it would have been awesome for about 10 seconds and then there would be Seth with his shirt off in front of all the Kardashians," he said.

The Palace of Versailles in France has denied that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and her fiance are marrying there.

Reports that the couple's wedding plans have been put on hold were recently dismissed by sources close to the pair.
