In Taiwan, people might call him “Ant-Man” when see his face. Some might not even know what his real name is. Indeed, Paul Rudd has become very famous all around the world after playing the marvel hero. Actually, he was known in quite some famous films before he played Ant-Man, those films were well-known among American. He appeared in Clueless in 1995, played a handsome guy Josh. His cast on US sitcom Friends has helped to gain his popularity. Producer has even amended the plot for him so that he could continue to cast on the sitcom. The two blockbuster comedies, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) and The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005), have made him the regular cast-member of comedy. Ant-Man And The Wasp will be released in end June this year. We grabbed the opportunity to invite him to have photo-shooting in New York before he starts the promotion for the film. This superstar conquered the scene with his easy-going charm, he made us laugh non-stop.
Paul Rudd is good at playing romance comedy. He has a unique position among the Hollywood artists. He does not have the classic handsome face with gold hair like Captain America, nor the muscular body like Thor. However, his smile and high forehead have attracted a bunch of fans. He is not like Owen Wilson, likes to make the character silly but lovely, nor like the James Franco’s style of acting, nor like Steve Carell’s favorite awkward style acting. He can integrate American humor into every expression, every sentence and every session very intelligently and naturally. Humor can be lively too.
“Down to earth” is his weapon
He has never been thought of being an actor when he was young. He grew up in Kansas. His parents migrated from UK to USA. The family was not wealthy. His
charm comes from this kind of “down to earth” characteristic. Every man can see themselves from the character that played by him. Therefore, he is the most suitable one to play Ant-Man. Scott Lang (Ant-Man) does not possess the inherent supernatural power like other superheroes do. He, just like Paul, is an ordinary person. His attitude towards a story of superhero is like “Wow! What is happening?”. You might not know, he has been involved himself in the process of the script writing of Ant-Man since beginning till amendment. This might be the reason why he could act so naturally. Then, where does the charm of Paul Rudd come from? He is not pretentious, not arrogant; he treats other friendly and nicely; he is humorous. Those are nature-born characteristics, somethings that no one else can copy.
