Paul Rudd is best known for his work in iconic shows and films like “Clueless”, “Friends”, “Anchorman”, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Plus, the star has taken on numerous MCU projects in his role as Ant-Man.
“I’m hoping now that I’ll finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and [Jordan]. I figure I’ll be on a lot more yachts,” Rudd said. “I’m excited to expand my yachting life. And I’ll probably try to get better at brooding in really soft light. I like to ponder. I think this is going to help me become more inward and mysterious. And I’m looking forward to that.”
“I mean, I’m going to lean into it hard. I’m going to own this,” he continues. “I’m not going to try to be like ‘Oh, I’m so modest.’ I’m getting business cards made. But all of my friends will destroy me, and I expect them to, and that’s why they’re my friends.”
