Seth Rogen: James Franco doesn't smoke weed

March 14th, 2014 5:20am EDT
Seth Rogen
Seth Rogen finds it "depressing" that he's never smoked cannabis with James Franco.
While the pair starred alongside each other in hit 2008 stoner comedy 'Pineapple Express', the comic admits his hunky pal refrains from smoking the narcotic, but other stars such as Jonah Hill and Paul Rudd have joined him in lighting up.
In a candid interview with 'Watch What Happens Live', Seth said: "This is really depressing for me to say ... I've never smoked weed with James Franco because he doesn't smoke weed. That's why he's such a good actor! It's really sad, actually."
Quizzed who he has smoked the...

Paul Rudd and Jimmy Fallon
The first official "Tonight Show Lip Sync Battle" happened Tuesday night between host Jimmy Fallon and guest Paul Rudd.

The skit was first made famous on "The Late Show" when Fallon was host, and became epic when guest Stephen Merchant, who created the game with pals John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, challenged Jimmy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to a battle that Gordon-Levitt destroyed with a mock performance of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" (watch it below).

This time around it was Rudd's turn to take on the host, and the result is nothing short of hilarious. The "This Is 40" star began by miming...

Paul Rudd Negotiating For Lead Role In 'Ant-Man'

December 19th, 2013 12:03pm EST
Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd has appeared to win a two-man race for the role of Ant-Man.

Variety reports the Anchorman 2 star is negotiating with Marvel to star in Edgar Wright's Ant-Man film. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was rumored to be the other front-runner for the part.

It's possible that Gordon Levitt's recent involvement in DC Comic's Sandman film may have pushed him out of the running - or Rudd was the favored choice in the first place.

Rudd's comedic flair should fit well with Edgar Wright's style, even if the film is a superhero flick at-heart. It is currently rumored that Ant-Man will follow the later ...

Paul Rudd finds theatre "less appealing" than shooting movies.

The 44-year-old actor - who has two children, seven-year-old son Jack, and daughter Darby, three, with his wife Julie Yaeger - admits he would prefer to be cast in a film rather than take to the stage for a production because the days are longer in plays and he only gets one day off a week to relax and spend time with his family.

Speaking to Total Film, he said: "I just finished this play [on Broadway] with Michael Shannon called 'Grace'. I love doing plays, but it is an interesting grind, and exhausting in a way I find less a...

Classic Comedy 'Clueless' Arrives On Blu-ray May 1

Clueless
Jane Austen might never have imagined that her 1816 novel "Emma" could be turned into a fresh and satirical look at ultra-rich teenagers in a Beverly Hills high school in "Clueless."

Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash), both named after "great singers of the past that now do infomercials," are pampered upper-class girls who care less about getting good grades than wearing the right clothes and being as popular as possible.

But Cher, who lives with her tough yet warm-hearted lawyer dad (Dan Hedaya) and hunky, sensitive stepbrother (Paul Rudd), also has an innate urge to help...

From waxing to moustaches, we get differing perspectives of male hair from today’s leading experts and celebrities such as Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis...

March 9th, 2012 1:54pm EST
Emma Watson
Producers behind Emma Watson's new film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower have won an appeal to have the film's restrictive 'R' rating overturned.

The picture, which stars Watson, Paul Rudd and Logan Lerman in the tale of a troubled high school student was initially rated 'R' by censors at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), due to its depiction of teenage drug and alcohol use.

The rating meant kids under 17 would have to be accompanied by an adult and executives at Summit Entertainment, the production company behind the film, appealed against the decision.

In the film an overtaxed Manhattan couple (Aniston & Paul Rudd) move to a free-spirited community that rejects the rules of contemporary society.

She recently told GQ about her own "Wanderlust"-like hippie experience. She explained, "In Laurel Canyon, we were very familiar with hippies. I mean, I bathed. But I also wouldn't call myself a Beverly Hills person in any way. I was a more earthy girl for su...
