    Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann: The Brangelina of Comedy?

    While most celeb couples' behavior totally makes us gag, some famous duos are always total class acts. We dished with the King of Bromance Judd Apatow and his wife, Leslie Mann, who were honored at the Stars 2009 Benefit Gala at the Beverly Hills Hotel for their work with the Fulfillment Fund, a nonprofit helping disadvantaged students to finish school.

    A talented, do-gooding couple with a great relaysh and supercute kids? Makes us wonder where we've seen that same type before...

    Judd and Leslie, are you the Brangelina of the comedy world?
    Leslie:
    [Laughs.] The Brangelina? No. We're probably more like the Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy.
    Judd:
    No, they don't date anymore. They broke up a long time ago. [Ed. Note: You sure about that, Judd?] Most of my joke ideas right now are offensive. We're the David Beckham and Posh Beckham of comedy.

    How do you make a Hollywood relationship work? Is there a secret?
    Leslie:
    I think it's that Judd gives me a rub every night before bed.
    Judd:
    That's never reciprocated. I rub her back until she falls asleep, and then I stay up until 4 a.m. in the morning watching Glee by myself.

    Les, do you feel like you're stuck in a boys club when doing Judd's movies?
    Leslie:
    I grew up with boys, so I'm very comfortable with boys. I don't pay attention to that part of it. I just enjoy it and how funny they are and how sweet. They're a bunch of sweet boys. I like it. We have all girls at home—we have a girl dog and two little girls. Judd's the one boy. [To Judd.] Do you like it, being in a girls club?
    Judd:
    I do! And I'm the most feminine one in the house.

    Hey, Judd, would you ever consider making a movie with an all-female cast? Maybe Seth Rogen in a wig?
    Judd:
    Sure, why not! In a way I have made all-female movies if you look at it through the right angle.
