Leslie Mann Talks Living With Judd Apatow & Aging in Hollywood

Leslie Mann gives the camera a piercing stare on the cover of NewBeauty‘s Winter issue!

Here’s what the 46-year-old Blockers actress had to share with the mag:

On whether or not husband Judd Apatow has picked up a few things from her beauty routines: “He has, and he hasn’t. He is resistant to most things. He still dresses like a 14-year-old boy and refuses to stop. We were in Paris a few years ago and went into this empty restaurant, trying to get a bite to eat before the airport. We walk up, and the hostess looks Judd up and down, gives him a dirty look, and says, ‘The restaurant is full,’ then turned and walked away. We can’t go places because of him – he is such a slob! For beauty stuff, he’s kind of open to buying something for blackheads, but then he never uses it. He doesn’t use any hair products or anything; he uses Irish Spring soap and then whatever leftover shampoo is in the shower. For a long time, he was using my purple shampoo for blonds and I don’t think he knew that it was toning his hair into a nice lavender hue!”

On aging in Hollywood: “Here’s the thing with me: I’ve never been the hot girl or the beauty person, so I don’t have that pressure that a ‘hot movie star person’ would have. My career has always been like, ‘Well, I’m not the hot person, I’m just a normal person, so it doesn’t matter.’ It’s not like, ‘Oh, she’s really falling apart! She was so hot when she was young,’ or ‘She was gorgeous when she was young and now she’s not.’ I’m just like, ‘I was fine then, and I’m fine now.’ That’s how I think about that, thank God.”

“Years ago, I wanted to be on the covers of magazines, but that was never my thing. I was more the person who worked and did the movies that I wanted to do, but I wasn’t a sensation like J.Lo. I think that served me in my life, because I didn’t have the fall – not that she’s had the fall either! And she never will! I love J.Lo! I’m just using that as an example. You know what I mean. I’ve just kind of been here the whole time. I’m just right here in the middle.”

    Honestly, she seems lovely and nice, but in this whole interview she just sounds as an hypocrite. She says it’s never been about the looks for her, yet she’s a beautiful skinny blonde who’s aging too well for one who “doesn’t care about looks”…

    You’re barely in the middle. Sorry but most think you get your small roles because of your husband.. plus you’re anorexic and it’s scary that your bones might pop out of your face at any moment.
