Paul Rudd Talks Family, Hot Guy Status with Redbook

Posted Monday August 15, 2011 7:14 PM GMT

He's carved out quite the successful career in show business, but Paul Rudd has managed to do an impressive job of keeping his family life out of the spotlight.

Taking down the barriers, the "Knocked Up" star sat down with Redbook to chat about his loved ones while also commenting on his "hot guy" status.

Highlights from Paul's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Redbook!

On things about his wife that irritate him:

Oh you just added another hour to this interview! When we were filming Knocked Up, we kept a running list of annoying things about me. We used some of it in the movie and it was great. It’s almost like therapy, because I’d hear my wife yell from the other room, “Here’s one you can tell Judd [Apatow]: Pick up your f---ing coffee cup!” The list kept going after the movie came out, by the way. But my next project is a spin-off of Knocked up, Focusing mostly on my character so hat material has really come in handy.

On what makes him feel like Husband of the Year:

When take the time to acknowledge who my wife is and what she does. Whether it’s saying, ‘Wow, you look really pretty” when she isn’t expecting it, or just, “My God, its so amazing what you do for our children.” I think she appreciates that stuff even more than the bigger gestures, like picking a really though-out birthday gift or arranging a great party for her on the sly.

On being in the "Hot Guy" slot in the new issue of Redbook:

“The first thing it makes me think is that James Franco, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, and Jon Hamm weren’t available. And then once that goes away, what’s left is nothing but sheer appreciation.”
