Paul Rudd is arguably the most relatable guy in Hollywood.
Sure, the man has enviable genes (He. Does. Not. Age.), a killer head of hair, and managed to sculpt an impressive six-pack for Ant-Man and Ant-Man2 in his late 40s. But he’s got that self-deprecating humor and disarming goodness about him that makes you think, in a different life, you could be buddies.
You could enjoy a beer, quote Anchorman, and watch some football together. Even better if you’re a Kansas City Chiefs fan.
Rudd grew up outside Kansas City; his father worked for the Trans World Airlines.
Fun fact: When his beloved Kansas City Royals clinched a spot in the 2014 World Series, Rudd told a local news camera: “Party at my mom’s! She’s out of town, I’ve got a keg, it’s gonna be sweet!”
