Judd Apatow

If you've laughed in a cinema in the past 10 years then you probably owe Judd Apatow a thank you note.

The multi-talented writer, producer and director has been involved in some of the funniest films of recent memory, including The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Bridesmaids and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and now he's wearing all hats simultaneously with his new film This Is 40.

It's a semi-sequel to Knocked Up that follows Pete and Debbie, played by Paul Rudd and Apatow's off-screen wife Leslie Mann, and the troubles they face as they reach that dreaded age.

He took some time out from being extremely busy to speak to us about getting old, making Anchorman 2, living with Adam Sandler and why he's obsessed with watching his wife make out with Paul Rudd.

This Is 40 is released on Valentine's Day
