People magazine’s selection of Rudd as Sexiest Man Alive 2021 came as a surprise to some, including Rudd, who was “baffled” by the honor.
Such humble deflection “coupled with those gorgeous green eyes and easy grin” is exactly why audiences have fallen in love with Rudd over the years. This month alone he’s reteaming with Will Ferrell for the new Apple TV+ series The Shrink Next Door and taking on one of Hollywood’s most treasured franchises with Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
Despite his rise to leading man superstardom, Rudd insists he’s most happy at home with his wife of 18 years, Julie, 53, and their kids Jack, 17, and Darby, 12.
“When I think about myself, I think of myself as a husband and a father, like I’m that,” he says. “I just hang out with my family when I’m not working. That’s what I kind of like the most.”
Paul Rudd Wife
Paul Rudd’s wife was the only person he told ahead of time about his new title.
“She was stupefied,” he says. “But you know she was very sweet about it. After some giggling and shock, she said ‘Oh, they got it right.’ And that was very sweet. She was probably not telling the truth, but what’s she going to say?”
Julie Yaeger (53) is a famous Actress, Television & Film Producer, and a Former Publicist. She is also the wife of the famous American Actor, Paul Rudd .
