Hot Man Bein’ Hot of the Day: Paul Rudd edition

Ladies and gentlemen, the handsome and talented Mr. Paul Rudd!

“It’s insane but it’s a great insane.” –Paul Rudd

“I was more interested in acting than just doing stand-up comedy. And then my interests in stand-up started getting really weird. I was into a very anti-comedian thing, a very, kind of, Andy Kaufman performance-art type thing, and I thought, “Well, if I were ever to do comedy, it would so not work, because it wouldn’t be funny.” [Laughs.] I think there are guys like Zack Galifianakis, I just think he’s like the best out there, so good. There are so many really good comedians, and I would never be as good as they are. It’s not my calling. What’s funny is, all the comics want to be musicians. Like Tom Waits or Elvis Costello. Same with actors. A lot of people say, “What’s the worst part about being an actor?” And the worst part is that you’re not a musician.” –Paul Rudd

“There’s a very specific thing you can do to get in magazines. I’m much happier to just show up and do the job. I haven’t taken the active approach to making myself a star. I haven’t been in a blockbuster.” –Paul Rudd

Pfft. You are a blockbuster, kiddo! Hot shit.

    I didn’t expect to like ‘I Love You, Man’ but found I laughed a lot, largely because Rudd has an easy presence on the screen, even when he’s playing tight-assed jerks, which he usually does. Saw him in a couple of the last Friends series last week too and he did fit in well with the rest of the cast. So much so that I wondered if he auditioned when it began.

      He is a shockingly winning dude…I first found that when watching Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet. You’re not supposed to like Paris, really, but I found myself liking him very well.

  2. Steven Harris Says:

    I’d forgotten he’s Paris in that. Don’t know why as I watched it again only about two months ago. Luhrmann makes every character credible. Try telling that to purists who think he’s desecrated Shakespeare, though. If anything, he’s shown more respect to the play by bringing it to life for a whole new audience and by keeping to the text. Mercutio is excellent too.
