Our incredible interview with Paul Rudd included some epic SPOILERS, which we couldn't publish until after the film is in theatres. So here's the second part of our Paul Rudd interview with spoilers! Enjoy!
If you haven't seen Ant-Man and the Wasp yet, STOP READING.
This post contains SPOILERS. You've been warned.
On the All of Me Scene
Paul Rudd had worked with Michelle Pfieffer previously. “I mean she's the best. She's so nice and she's just a really lovely person. I hadn’t seen her in a while, and she was a very-very sweet person. Very smart. Very funny in ways I think people might not know. She's very wry and she's got a real stealthy cool sense of humor, I find.”
“People ask me, ‘How much did I study Michelle Pfeiffer?' I'm sure throughout my life I have subconsciously studied Michelle Pfeiffer. But yeah there was a certain point where I said, ‘Well this might just get creepy if I, no go ahead, just go about your day, Michelle, I'm just observing you.' We kept referring to that as the ‘All of Me' scene.”
On being stuck in the Quantum Realm
“You know, all I can say is I so want this to remain as secretive as possible for as long as possible, oh yeah no-no, this is what I was thinking. Because I was I was giddy in a way, imagining this movie, which is funny and ends on this kind of uplifting amazing moment. And then you're going to see a few names.”
And then, wait, yeah and it is this shocking kind of punch to the gut that our, I was imagining reactions to it, and still am. Yeah, and I'll be honest, I only saw this for the first time 2 nights ago. And it was in a little small kind of screening room with Evangeline, Hannah, Laurence Fishburne, and just a couple other people.
And Laurence didn't know it was coming. And when it happened, he just went, ‘OH!' and it's, so many people didn't, and they had that reaction. And even Evangeline and I, who knew it was coming, it was like, ‘Wow. This was really cool.' And also knowing it was coming like before Infinity War came out.
I knew that this was, and so that was really, it was really exciting. It's like knowing a secret that you know is going to really land when people see it.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is in theatres now.
Thanks to Walt Disney Studios for bringing me to Los Angeles on an all-expense paid trip. As always, all opinions are my own.
