That Time I met Steve Carrell and Paul (Ridiculously Cute!) Rudd
March 10, 2017
After screening the movie The Big Short a couple award show seasons ago (the one about the housing bubble) I ran after one of the film's stars, Steve Carrell, to chat about the movie and of course told him all about the guys I've dated who worked in finance - hey, when you meet an A-lister, you need to come up with something you have in common with them or the roles they play and that's all I could come up with!
Though I will always think of him as a great comedic actor (think 40-Year-Old Virgin!) Steve can also play very serious, thoughtful roles, and is super personable. After talking with Steve, I had noticed that the women around me were whispering and looking at the guy who was standing next to me. I had noticed him before and thought he was quite a cutie, but it didn't strike me until a third or fourth glance that this cute guy with great hair was actually Paul Rudd - as in Paul Rudd from Clueless!
It also occurred to me that I was not only standing next to a total heartthrob, (I must have seen Clueless a thousand times when it came out!) but Paul had also played Antman, so now I can say that I snapped a pic with a superhero! I think Antman is a hero, right? Hero or villain, Paul is adorable just the same!
After any advanced screening comes the after party, and this time we all gathered to celebrate the film at super cool spot, Blue Ribbon. Aside from the actors in the movie, I noticed some other actors from popular TV shows floating around. We were greeted with specialty cocktails, seafood towers and almost every kind of food that was fit for, well, a star!
