Born on April 6th 1969, Paul Stephen Rudd is an American comedian, actor, producer, and writer. Rudd is known for his starring roles in the films, Captain America: Civil War, Ant-MAN, This is 40, Our Idiot Brother, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and many more.
Paul Rudd was born in Passaic, New Jersey to Gloria and Michael. His mother was a sales manager at a TV station KCMO-TV, Kansas City, while his father was a former Vice President of Trans World Airless. The family’s initial surname, “Rudnitzky” had been changed to “Rudd” by his grandfather. As he was growing up, Rudd loved to read British comics such as The Dandy, and The Beano that were sent to him by his uncle from UK.
Rudd’s parents were born in England and were of Jewish descent, and had moved to Britain from Poland and Russia. Rudd says that he used to go to the synagogue, had a bar mitzvah, and loves Jewish culture and food. Additionally, Rudd confirms that his wife and children are all Jewish. He loves the Jewish heritage as he is able to relate and practice it.
So, it can be concluded that Paul Rudd upholds his Jewish beliefs, despite being surrounded by a dominant Christianity religion.
Politically speaking, Paul Rudd is not very vibrant. However, he is seen to be willing to accept and respect opinions or behavior distinct from those of his own.
At first, Paul Rudd seemed quite weirdly fascinated when he met former president, Barack Obama. Beyond this, Rudd has been clear about two great liberal celebrity causes of the moment: gun control and gun rights.
After one Saturday Night Live episode, Paul Rudd kissed a man and became surprised that people asked him about this instance. Rudd does not see anything shocking or weird about the kiss. This could probably purport that he is a supporter of the gay community.
In regards to gun control, Rudd appears to have a more serious stand. He once participated in a celebrity announcement to urge Congress to take action to reform the laws on gun control after the Connecticut school shooting.
Lastly, Paul Rudd’s peers have been seen expressing their different political views time and time again on Saturday Night Live, through talk show appearances and award shows. However, Rudd has managed to stay completely silent in regards to his own beliefs and affiliations. Maybe Rudd is just concerned with his own work.
