Paul Rudd Tells 'Chelsea Lately' About His Very Awkward Nude Scene (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 30th 2011 4:30AM
Paul Rudd, 'Chelsea Lately'Nude scenes are inherently awkward. And while you might think a nude scene is about as awkward as it can get, Paul Rudd was able to top that on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), and all he had to do was sit there.

The problem all came in the angle of the shot. Because of it, Rudd wasn't even able to wear a thong or anything to cover himself partially. Furthermore, the awkward angle forced the poor guy who had to hold the boom mic into the worst possible position in the shoot.

"The only place that he could stand where he wasn't in the shot," Rudd said, "Was in front of me."

Paul Rudd, 'Late Show with David Letterman'When Paul Rudd's car broke down on his way to the airport, he didn't do what most celebrities would do. He didn't call for a cab, or a car service, or even a friend to come help him out. He stuck his thumb out and hoped for the best. He shared this story on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) for a very specific reason.

A young woman named Allie Brown pulled over and let this strange man into his car, and help him make it to the airport in time to make his flight. So, Rudd wanted to do something to thank her, but he wanted to make sure it was something special and memorable.

'Independent Spirit Awards': Rudd Gropes Mendes, 'Banksy' Appears, Portman Wins (VIDEO)

Paul Rudd, Eva Mendes on 'Independent Spirit Awards'Before Anne Hathaway and James Franco were "Inceptioned" by Alec Baldwin at the Academy Awards, another awards-show host found himself in a parody of a Best Feature nominee. About to take the stage to host the 2011 'Film Independent Spirit Awards' (Sat., 10PM ET on IFC), Joel McHale caught his arm between a giant rock and his makeup table. Banksy to the rescue! But the mystery artist only sprayed Bart Simpson graffiti on the rock, and then revealed himself to be... Alex Trebek?

Later in the proceedings, Eva Mendes said she and Paul Rudd intended to do a funny bit that involved groping, but the show was running behind schedule. Rudd fondled Mendes' breast anyway. And as Mendes announced the Best Screenplay winner, Rosario Dawson grabbed Rudd's crotch. What a, uh, touching moment. Also in the clip, watch Natalie Portman's acceptance speech for her Best Female Lead win.

Stewart Digs Up Footage of Paul Rudd's 'Daily' Visit in 1999 (VIDEO)

Paul Rudd, Jon Stewart in 1999 'Daily' EpisodePaul Rudd was Jon Stewart's first test guest when Stewart began hosting 'The Daily Show' (weeknights, 11PM ET on COM) back in January 1999. He showed Rudd a brief clip of the exchange they had nearly 12 years ago.

Rudd hadn't shaved; Stewart sported longer, shaggier hair that almost looked teased. And his suit-coat sleeves were way too long. "You look older in that clip. How is that possible?" remarked Stewart. "You look a little bit like Ducky from 'Pretty in Pink.'" said Rudd.

Stewart divulged that the suit belonged to Craig Kilborn, his 'Daily' predecessor. "It was incentive for me -- like, 'He'll get bigger if we put him in this.'"

Paul Rudd Got Busted by Barack Obama (VIDEO)

Paul Rudd Got Busted by Barack Obama Actor Paul Rudd was shooting his latest film in Washington, D.C. While he was there, he ran into our nation's president -- and things went downhill after that. Paul was shooting 'How Do You Know' -- a movie where he plays a corporate executive. He and co-star Reese Witherspoon then went to the White House, where they met President Barack Obama.

So, what was that like? On 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Paul gave us the straight dope. While talking with David Letterman, the actor discussed a tale of ritual humiliation that took place within the Oval Office.

As soon as he met President Obama, Paul broke out into a "flop sweat." Then, the president asked what his role was in the movie. "I'm playing this guy," Paul said. "He's getting indicted, his whole world is falling apart." " ... Oh, so you're playing a Congressman," Obama said.

'Saturday Night Live' - Paul Rudd / Paul McCartney Recap

by Dr. Ryan Vaughan, PhD (no, seriously), posted Dec 12th 2010 12:15PM
Paul McCartney and Paul Rudd on 'SNL' Dec. 11 2010['Saturday Night Live' - 'Season 36, Episode 9']

Paul Rudd is, quite simply, one of the most accomplished straight men of this century. Not "straight", as in heterosexual, but rather "straight" as in "the guy in comedies that sets-up the 'funnyman' or 'the guy who needs to get all the laughs to compensate for things.' And by 'things' I mean: small wieners and low self-esteem."

In this role, Rudd excels, often getting as many if not more laughs than his comedic partners in this, the age of anti-humor where the laughs come more from the reactions to, not delivery of, situations and punchlines (think 'The Office,' 'Arrested Development' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'). Now he takes another turn as the lead jokester, and we are left to hope he's taught the cast a thing or two about being straight.

Watch Paul Rudd Laugh Really Hard in His 'Saturday Night Live' Promos

by Jean Bentley, posted Dec 10th 2010 4:10PM
Paul RuddJust when you thought it wasn't possible for Paul Rudd to get any more adorably charming, he went ahead and filmed these goofy 'Saturday Night Live' promos with his 'I Love You, Man' costar (and 'SNL' cast member) Andy Samberg.

Our favorite is the one where he laughs really, really hard -- like, really hard -- but the Santa cameos are pretty great too. Rudd is currently promoting his romantic comedy with Reese Witherspoon and Owen Wilson (and Jack Nicholson!), 'How Do You Know.'

Get psyched for tomorrow's Paul-stravaganza (with host Rudd and musical guest Paul McCartney) after the jump.

Paul Rudd Talks of Family's Surreal Ceremony for Late Father (VIDEO)

'Late Show': Paul Rudd Talks Scattering Dad's AshesPaul Rudd has been to Ireland many times. His late father loved the country, so his remains are there. Sort of. Appearing on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), Rudd described the surreal experience of scattering his dad's ashes in Ireland.

Rudd's father had known a lighthouse keeper, so the family's intention was to scatter the ashes from the lighthouse. "We realized we had nothing to disperse them with," said Rudd. "So we went to a store and just got party cups ... [it] kinda added to the whole surreal [event]."

Upon finding they had ashes left over, they took the remainder to another of his favorite places. But this time, the Rudd family "'Lebowski'd" themselves in the process.

Ron Livingston Sort of Hates Paul RuddHow can anyone hate on actor Paul Rudd? He's so funny! And charming! ... Still, on the new 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 10PM ET on E!), one man finds a way.

Actor Ron Livingston is starring in the new movie 'Dinner for Schmucks,' along with Mr. Rudd. And he somehow manages to express his anger, even though Paul hasn't necessarily done anything wrong. The tale of rage involves a failed audition, and also a poker game.

Host Chelsea Handler expresses surprise that anyone could be annoyed with Paul Rudd. "Yeah; he's pretty likeable," she says. Then, Chelsea says this to Ron: "You seem really bitter."

Halle Berry is about to join a hallowed group that includes Mel Gibson, Kim Basinger and Michael Moore: Oscar-Winning guest stars on 'The Simpsons.'

Executive producer Al Jean recently confirmed an episode airing in early 2011 will feature the 'Monster's Ball' actress presenting at the Academy Awards. Bart and Homer are there as nominees for their animated short based on Bart's cartoon web series 'Angry Dad.'

"It's a bit of a satire of the different Oscar acceptances where two people clearly race to the stage to get there first," says Jean. "Homer and Bart are fighting to be the one that accepts."

'Saturday Night Live' - 'Zach Galifianakis/Vampire Weekend' Recap

by Annie Wu, posted Mar 7th 2010 1:45PM
zach galifianakis vampire weekend
(S35E16) This was definitely one of the weirder installments of 'Saturday Night Live' in a while, but for fans of Zach Galifianakis, it was a real treat. It's very rare that the entire tone of the evening so perfectly fits the host. A lot of hosts, be they athletes or singers or professional actors, use 'SNL' as a platform for showcasing other talents that they have (or think they have) and that can often lead to strange, near unwatchable territory.

Galifianakis knows where's his strong points are and confidently played those up all through the episode. He is not at his best with cue card-heavy parts, but rather when he forces the audience to bask in his glorious, beardy, unsettling presence. So we got a lot of that. A lot. Response to this episode will probably be highly divided (well, more so than other weeks) but, speaking as a long-time fan of Galifianakis, it worked.
