Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow on Making ‘This is 40’ (video)

this-is-40-times-talksOver the holiday, I re-watched This is 40 and even with all of its flaws, I remembered how much I really liked it. Judd Apatow‘s films are always populated with characters that I would love to hang out with in real (and reel) life and this new film definitely falls into that category.

In this Times Talks, a series of chats that the New York Times puts together, Apatow and stars Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann are interviewed by David Carr for a good hour and a half. They go deep into the process of making the movie, rehearsals, their careers and more.
