Are elizabeth banks and paul rudd dating martha stewart today show dating
Rudd is filming reshoots for next month's Wanderlust with Jennifer Aniston and director David Wain (who also directed Rudd in Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models, and The Ten).And though he grew up in Kansas, Rudd is looking pretty Hollywood: His hair is artfully tousled, his shirt matches his khaki-green eyes, and he's wearing foundation on his already smooth, lineless skin. I think it's so much nicer." We're sitting in the very un-Midwestern setting of a trailer on the Universal Studios lot outside Los Angeles.
In Wanderlust, he and Jennifer Aniston play married New Yorkers in midlife crisis who move to a commune.
And he's started work on This Is Forty, a Judd Apatow film built around the couple Rudd and Leslie Mann played in Knocked Up, which Rudd says looks at marriage and parenthood. You don't see him ass-kicking left and right, but that's very endearing to women, especially as we get older and want to see men who can be caretakers," she says. He did a great job of being in relevant movies for our generation and those younger."Rudd is now poised to step into the shoes of the comedic-dramatic geniuses adored by the baby-boomer generation—actors such as Tom Hanks and Dustin Hoffman, who can make stories about regular men as riveting as a car chase.
Some leading men make their name through romantic and physical threat.
But Rudd has never been a heartbreaker—he's always been a keeper, since the beginning when he romanced Alicia Silverstone in Clueless, and then as he bromanced the likes of Will Ferrell, Jason Segel, Steve Carell, and Seth Rogen in the string of box-office hit comedies that made him a star (Anchorman; The 40-Year-Old Virgin; Knocked Up; I Love You, Man; Dinner for Schmucks).
And yet, as he strolls off for his hair and makeup touch-ups, stopping to chat with everyone he passes, there's a hometown quality to the proceedings.
Rudd seems to have a longstanding personal relationship with not only his director and costar (Aniston tells me he dated her producing partner in the '90s, before they even did Object of My Affection or Friends together, "when we were, like, 12"), but with most of the supporting cast and crew.
