The actor that never ages. Paul Rudd has taken on a lot of titles over the course of his decades-long career, from rom-com heartthrob to superhero to one of Hollywood’s funniest stars.
After nabbing small roles in TV movies and series throughout the ‘90s, Paul launched into stardom with his role as Josh, the love interest of Alicia Silverstone’s Cher Horowitz, in the 1995 film Clueless.
Paul finished out the decade with roles in the TV show Sisters and films such as Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Romeo + Juliet and The Object of My Affection. He began to show off his goofy side in the early 2000s, taking on roles like Andy in the Wet Hot American Summer franchise, Mike Hannigan on Friends and Brian Fantana in the Anchorman films.
He tied the knot with his wife, Julie Yaeger, in 2003, and the couple went on to become parents of two, welcoming son Jack and daughter Darby in 2006 and 2010, respectively. While fans are charmed by his hilarious jokes and personality, the Ghostbusters: Afterlife actor noted that it only annoys his children. “My favorite thing is when they roll their eyes because it’s such a dad joke, but I know they find it funny,” he told Entertainment Tonight in 2018. “They kind of try to fight a smile.”
