she liked Imaginary Men best of all

25 Days / Day 17 / Paul Rudd



Who: Paul Rudd! Must have comedy-ensemble player, Master of the Bromance, all around good guy

Why: He’s Paul Rudd! (always said with fist pump like Steve Holt! in Arrested Development). He’s the funniest, cutest, most adorable guy working in movies today

When: Right now

Level of Obsession: He’s one of the rare actors who will make me see a movie I’m not interested in just because he’s in it. He always makes me smile when I see him and pump my fist when I say his name

“Ahhhh!” Moment(s): As Paris in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet dancing like a pompous ass; “you look like a man-o-lantern” and “you know how I know you’re gay?” from 40 Year Old Virgin; his dorky dance in I Could Never Be Your Woman; “Joben” in I Love You, Man

I frickin’ adore Paul Rudd. He’s great in everything – if it is a crappy movie he makes it better (Ron Burgundy), if it is a good movie, he’s the icing on the cake (Forgetting Sarah Marshall). My friend Janis and I love him and we’ll be sitting in a theater and a preview will come on and there’s his sweet little face saying something hilarious or ridiculous or both and we’ll squeal and fist pump “Paul Rudd!” everytime. He’s just so likable. How can you not like Paul Rudd?? I don’t understand. And although I love Community and laughed at this line out of Joel McHale’s mouth last week: “To me religion is like Paul Rudd: I see the appeal and I would never take it away from anyone, but I would also never stand in line for it,” I absolutely disagree. I would always stand in line for Paul Rudd!

  1. I totally agree! Love Paul Rudd since Clueless! He was so sweet as Josh!

    I bought the book “The Object of my Affection”, and went to see that movie all because of him!

  2. I totally agree with everything you say. I have loved this man since Clueless.
    Also right up there with the LMJ and Ewan McG thing.
