Paul Rudd: Unknown Facts About MCU’s Ant-Man

Paul Rudd is a world-famous actor now, and even though he looks unbelievably young, he is actually 51 years old.

Our forever young star has got our complete attention ever since he came to our screens as Phoebe‘s Mike. He established himself as an actor in the comedy film Clueless in 1995.

Paul Rudd is one of the nicest, funniest, and unavoidably most handsome actors of Hollywood. He has just raised his fans to billions by debuting in the comic book movies as Ant-Man.

The actor is turning 52 this April 6, and join us in wishing him a very happy birthday.

Friends Forever

Paul Rudd became a comedy-drama chocolate boy by starring in Clueless. He has had some hit movies in the genre and is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood.


He reached worldwide fame through a superhit show F.R.I.E.N.D.S where he starred as Mike, boyfriend/husband of Phoebe.

From then till now, it doesn’t look like ages, though.

British Origin

Paul Rudd‘s parents were both born in London. They are both non-religious Jews whom Paul has a lot to talk about during his interviews.

To make their surname simple, Paul‘s grandfather changed their surname from Rudnitzky to Rudd.

Comic books

Paul Rudd was a huge comic book fan, and his uncle kept him occupied by sending comic books from the U.K.

That could also be one of the reasons why he chose Ant-Man. Well, that and the pay and the fan following.

Comedy Actor


Paul Rudd has said that he wanted to do different roles and explore other genres, but he ended up being a comedy actor.

His movie selections didn’t help either. But finally, the role of Ant-Man, which showed him in his own skin as a comedy actor but still a superhero at large, has made his dreams come true.

Tragedy In LA

Just before shooting the cult famous Clueless, Rudd‘s friend died in a car crash. While he was already starting to hate the city, the things that happened to him later didn’t help.

While filming Clueless, Paul Rudd was mugged and shot at. But the worst part was that he had to go and film a club scene the next day.

Paul decided to move to New York after getting some advice from a fellow actor.

From making us laugh nonstop through his movies to his interviews, it looks like he has been on our screens forever.

We are lucky that we get to see him more through Marvel fulfilling his calling of making us laugh and playing a superhero while at it.

We wish our non-aging vampire dude a Very Happy Birthday!
