For some Seth MacFarlane is a comedic genius who brought "Family Guy" to life. Today he stopped by the Howard Stern SiriusXM radio show to talk his new movie "Ted 2," as well as his past relationships.

MacFarlane's film "Ted 2" is set to hit theaters soon, featuring the talking teddy bear and his best friend played by Mark Wahlberg.

The interview began with MacFarlane praising Stern and Robin for their help in pumping up "A Million Ways to Die in the West" according to

That discussion quickly broke into Stern's questions regarding MacFarlane being employed by the age of 9 for a few comics he drew.

"Howard said Seth got a job at 9 at a local newspaper after drawing something for them," according to Marksfriggin.

"He said from that time until he went to college he held that job. Howard said he was the local cartoonist. Seth said it was called Walter Crouton."

Stern asked MacFarlane about one of his drawings that wasn't picked up. MacFarlane began to explain the idea of PUG a drawing that consisted of the U as a nose and the P and G as eyes.

MacFarlane then broke into the fact that he was able to get the job because of how small his hometown Kent, Connecticut was.

Funny enough he said that his parents were hippies and he grew up in a log cabin that his father had built according to MarksFriggin.

In regards to "Ted 2" which is scheduled to hit theaters June 26, the two chatted a lot about the CGI and the fact that it made the film quite expensive. MacFarlane said that Fox should have just picked up the film from the inception but when they didn't he continued to seek a company that would and in came Universal.

Stern posed an interesting question by asking MacFarlane if they ever forgot to film something and he actually told him that they forgot to film the jury during the court scene.

Towards the end of the interview Stern brought up some of MacFarlane's love links. The first and most popular one was Emilia Clarke who plays Khaleesi in "Game of Thrones" and Sarah Connor in "Terminator Genisys."

"Howard said that he used to date the Khaleesi. Howard said he loves her," according to the MarksFriggin wrap-up.

"Seth said she is one of the finest people on the planet. Howard asked why he wouldn't stay with her.

Seth said that long distance is very hard. Howard said that's convenient too. He said you can blame it on the long distance if you don't like the person."

MacFarlane did say that his work schedule was way too much for him to keep up with a relationship commenting that he works 90 hours a week.

The interview ended on a promotional note where MacFarlane rehashed the fact that his whole day is a work shift. Fans of MacFarlane's work can hear him as the voice of Ted in "Ted 2" this Friday.
