Deco Features: This is 40
"This is 40" is Judd Apatow's hilarious look at life after 40. It's based on judd's real life with wife Leslie Mann their daughters - Maude and Iris - star too with Paul Rudd standing in for judd. It's a sequel...sort of to his earlier film "Knocked Up."
It's five year's later with "This Is 40" fast approaching. And they've had it with each other.
It's not a family film but it was a family film for Leslie..Hubby Judd Apatow directed and their kids are in it too.
LESLIE MANN: "It feels emotionally truthful to what we go through. The situations are all different but emotionally it feels truthful."
They even shot "This Is 40" in a house on their street.
LESLIE MANN: "That was really nice to be able to be able to yeah be one minute away from work."
Judd admits "This Is 40" is somewhat based on his real life.
JUDD APATOW: "I'd say like a third is true, a third is made up..and a third is based on Paul Rudd's humiliations."
PAUL RUDD: "I need you to look at something. Can we just keep a small shred of mystery in our relationship?"
JUDD APATOW: "So anything that kind of sickened you - probably happened to Paul."
PAUL RUDD: "It wasn't the most comfortable scene to shoot. Cause laying in that position was actually really uncomfortable for a long time."
But 40 looks good on Paul and Leslie.
