Leslie Mann is best known for being a strong comedic actress and starring in Judd Apatow’s movies. The fact she stars in Apatow’s movies is not a coincidence considering that she’s married to him, but she does open up about the relationship in a new feature in Marie Claire Magazine.
When talking about being her husband’s movies and collaborating with him, she says, “It’s so nice to be able to have a say in things and Judd being open to collaborating because I’m very helpful in that area. And that’s why working with him is so great, because I get to have a say in things where normally I wouldn’t."
She also talks about motherhood, saying, "I am always jealous of people. I feel like they have such an advantage over everyone - unless the [parents] are, like, raging alcoholics and beating [their kids]. But to have the parents stay together and have that stability, I just feel people like that are so much more solid. Is that a lie I tell myself?"
Finally, she explains how she ended up being such a staple in the comedic world after auditioning for drama, saying, “I didn’t think, I want to do dramas or I want to do comedies – I wasn’t clear in that way. I remember going out on more dramatic auditions, and people were laughing at me. And over the course of a year and a bunch of auditions, I kind of wound up here."
