Judd Apatow Reveals Why Steve Carell Yells Out Kelly Clarkson's Name in '40-Year-Old Virgin'

Judd Apatow wears a mask over his beard while stepping out for lunch with wife Leslie Mann in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (June 17).

The -year-old filmmaker and Leslie enjoyed dining out at a local eatery before waiting for their car at valet to head back home for the night.

Earlier in the day, Judd appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show remotely, where he answered one of the biggest questions in cinema – why Steve Carell yells out the singer’s name in The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

“I’m going to blame Seth Rogen,” he said, before revealing that he and the crew actually had a list of curses that Steve could shout during the scene. Kelly‘s name was a “clean” word.

Kelly laughed about the list they had: “I love that I made it between ‘burger panties’ and ‘throbbing monkey-tail’. It doesn’t matter what I do in my life, no one remembers me for anything other than that.”

If you missed it, Kelly recently opened up her divorce from Brandon Blackstock.
