Paul Rudd’s Best Moments!

One of Hollywood’s most likable dads is celebrating his 53rd birthday and we’re here to share some of his best moments that made fans fall in love with him even more!

Last year, Clueless heartthrob Paul Rudd was crowned “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine. He joked that now that he has the acclaimed title, he looks forward to being invited to sexy dinners with other A-List celebrities, such as George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Michael B. Jordan. Some fans commented on twitter renaming Rudd, “Sexiest Vampire Alive” referring to the longstanding joke about Rudd’s ageless look.

The viral video clip of Rudd on the Hot Ones interview is memed everywhere on Twitter. The wholesome expression of how proud he is of him and the host of the show, Sean Evans, for pushing through the deadly spicy interview is relatable to fans.

Paul Rudd is forever a “26-year-old”! The “certified young person” showed off his swag item, masks, to his “fellow millennials” making an important announcement that it is cool to wear face masks during the pandemic. The iconic Hot Ones scene was also reenacted, but this time Rudd and Evans wore masks while eating wings.

People who are not caught up with the popular sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S, may not know the reference, but when fans hear “Crap Bag,” they immediately associate it with Paul Rudd. It is an iconic scene in the show where Phoebe changes her government name to “Princess Consuela Banana Hammock” and to do the same, Rudd’s character changes his to “Crap Bag.” The catchy name is now seen everywhere on tote bags and mugs!

Might as well make Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September” a national anthem for Paul Rudd! A compilation of Rudd showing his distinct dance moves matching with the song went viral on Twitter making everyone’s day. His happy energy is contagious!

Speaking of dancing, Rudd is also known for his perfection in lip syncing! He performed Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” crushing the challenge and beating Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

Marvel fans may have already come across the trending tweets of the huge conversation on the reason behind why Ant-Man did not appear in Avengers: Infinity War. Although fans now know he was in the Quantum Realm, at the time many subscribed to a theory that it was because Ant-Man could have had the ability to have killed the powerful villain Thanos. Rudd cracks us up as he genuinely debates over the theory with his interviewer. In response, Josh Brolin who played Thanos posted a hilarious video of Brolin sitting on the toilet seat and closing the caption with “#flushanantman.”

As Rudd is known to be a big prankster, the jokes never get old when it comes to fooling show host Conan O’Brien. It all started when Rudd first did the so-called “Mac And Me” Prank back in 2004. Since then every time he goes on O’Brien’s show, he never fails to show a clip of his upcoming movie but with a twist!

We wish a very happy birthday to the star and we hope he continues to makes us chuckle with his friendly energy!
