Andy Samberg Covers Out Magazine

Andy Samberg Covers Out Magazine

SNL wunderkind Andy Samberg takes the March 2009 cover of Out Magazine and chats up his new movie, I Love You, Man.

The 30-year-old funnyman describes the comedy as “a dude-on-dude romantic story that straight guys can feel comfortable watching.” The flick stars Paul Rudd as a guy on the verge of marriage who ends up on an accidental date with Andy, who plays a gay character who only sleeps with straight guys. A het hunter, if you will.

Andy says, “No-one is going to look at my character in I Love You, Man, and say, ‘It’s funny because you’re a straight guy playing a gay guy.’ It’s funny because the character is funny.’”

And responding to criticism that Saturday Night Live has resorted to gay stereotypes, Andy claims the source of humor is not homosexuality, but in the fraught relationship straight men have with it. “It’s bro-gay,” he says, “which I just love because dudes that are bros and super antigay are the ones who need to get it the worst. They’re the ones we have the most fun f—ing with.”

To check out the full feature and a behind-the-scenes cover shoot video, visit I Love You, Man opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, March 20.

  • LuckyL

    Omg I love this guy so much and I love any man who is so comfortable with his sexuality and the sexuality of others


    (Pic no. 2) Is that how big he’s saying he is? Love this guy!!

  • emma

    He’s incredibly cute. And funny. Which makes him very attractive, in my opinion.
    He’s so cool!!!

  • Danyelle

    I thought Andy played Paul Rudd’s brother in the movie…. The guy who kisses Paul in the trailer is definitely not Andy S.

  • jaye

    I never got the concept of a ‘straight guy’ sleeping with a gay guy, but he’s still straight. Bunch of Bull, he’s bisexual. People put labels on themselves that make THEM feel good. It’s like saying , “I’m not gay, but the guy I’m sleeping with is.”

    Love Andy Samberg, love the Lonely Island, love Paul Rudd/Jason Segel. So much love I can’t contain myself, I must giddily smile now.

  • Sammy

    Definitely an incorrect description of Andy’s character. Having seen the movie, he plays Paul Rudd’s gay brother. The gay guy who only dates straight guys is Tom Lennon from Reno 911.

  • cammie

  • rc

    Jared, please correct this story. It’s wrong and sounds like a horrible premise for a movie.

  • the_boyfriend

    #7, I know, right, like that whole “down low” deal among the African American community “we’re not gay, we just have this thing we do with men, but hey, dude, we’re NOT GAY.” LMAO

  • Mai

    LOL I LOVE Andy Samberg! He’s super cute and funny.. Haha, but man I never knew he was thirty? Haha, oh well age is just a number, right? =)

  • aliceeee

    andy rocks!!!!!!

  • luce

    I’m sorry, but your plot summary has some incorrect information. Samberg does play a gay man, but he is Rudd’s brother. Rudd goes on a series of bro-dates to find a best man for his wedding b/c he has no male friends and finds friendship with Segel’s character.

  • Alix

    The ONLY and I repeat ONLY reason I’m going to see I love you, man is because of ANDY SAMBERG. I’m totally in love w/him!!

  • Oz


    Heh, this movie was hilarious. You only think its stupid cus you would be one of the straight guys who he could sleep with and you dont want to admit it.

  • bean-fishy

    He is so hot. >_> lol He is so funny too… everything thats awesome in a guy!!!!!! YAY!!!!

  • Caroline


  • chip

    i repeat that andy is paul rudds brother – how can you write this when you (obviously) have no idea what you’re talking about?

    Any journalistic integrity or do you repeat what you hear on the playground?
