Judd Apatow hates the ideal of getting older! The known film director, producer and director of ‘This is 40‘ and now forty five years old does see a bit of himself in the film’s stars, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, who do play a longtime married couple.
“I relate to just being a disgusting man and feeling bad that my wife even has to be around me,” Apatow, who is married to Mann in real life, told People magazine.
“You get older and you have things that need to be checked and looked at. It’s not very romantic. I try to keep it to a minimum, but every now and then, you say, ‘You have to look at this’.
“I don’t know what it is. There’s almost nothing you would do after 16 years of marriage that you would do after the first, second or third date.
“We like working together. We probably get along much better than one would assume during the creative process.
“What makes [our marriage] work is we’re always trying to do better and understand each other. We’re both complicated people, but we want it to work and we love each other.”
Apatow is best known for his work in comedy films, such as Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared and Girls.
