[spoiler] MULTIPLE SAUCES!

What Paul Rudd refuses to admit is that there can be only one, and it is Paul Rudd.

(Seriously, he's a few years older than me and there is no grey in that beard of his. Unlike mine.)

The photos are hilarious, and Paul Rudd is so charming and engaging.

But I just want to build an altar, with 21 candles, to his GLORIOUS FREAKING HAIR. I wish *I* had that glossy pony's mane.

Yeah, for real. If you really wanted to sell the premise of a Highlander reboot, you'd cast Rob Lowe vs Paul Rudd.

I've been a Hot Ones fan since the early days. There is a very good interviewer hidden under the hot sauce. This episode was one of the first real laugh out loud's I've done while watching the show. I have spent the day gradually introducing the family to the camera trick. The kids and partner all had the same reaction.

Paul Rudd seems like such a down to earth person too.

There are two things that make Hot Ones great. One is, the interviews are really well researched and engaging. The crew does a deep dive on the guest, so they always bring out more than any other interview show. You get anecdotes and responses that go deep.

The other is the wings. They really pace the show and give it a story, which starts off pleasant and then turns on the guest around the 7th or 8th wing (and the 8th wing has been Da Bomb for the majority of seasons). The later wings are so scorching hot that it brings out a visceral reaction in every person, and it’s always different and fascinating to watch. Paul Rudd did really well compared to some of the guests.

But yeah, a half hour interview show is one of the most fun things on YouTube. Go fig.

This is correct. They are pizza.

And if you want to get technical they are pizza sandwiches.

Paul Rudd is handsome, youthful, and for sure genetically blessed. But there is a high probability of some gray coverage happening on his head (and probably the beard, too.) He is a mortal man after all (also as I am a person with dark brown hair who colors their hair dark brown, there is a lack of highlights that gives it away to a certain extent.)

Why yes, I will watch a 30 minute YouTube video if it involves Paul Rudd. Also, I happen to have a different brand of chocolate orange pizza sandwiches in my house right now, and I am going to use this as an opportunity to eat them.

A guy I dated in the early 2000s grew up with Paul Rudd as his best friend. He said Rudd is extremely nice, smokes too much (or did at the time), and he sent Rudd a play I wrote that eventually went to FringeNYC, a play I felt confidence in because Rudd wrote back to my then-dating-friend saying, "This is really good!" So I'll always have a soft spot for him.

I think the Paul-Rudd-is-ageless thing played better circa 2012, when he was more than fifteen years past Clueless but was still going for a clean-shaven, boyish look (e.g. this 2012 Hollywood Reporter piece). With that beard and hair he is clearly leaning into middle age now.

"This is dumb." "This is very stupid."

I just spent 30 minutes watching a ridiculous video and I have no regrets.

I'd forgotten he was in Romeo + Juliet, but watched it recently and there he was -- noticeably younger. So he isn't a full-on vampire; it's something else.

" it's something else." -- it's being the sort of attractive person who gets hired to be in movies and has the money and privilege to age well in the later 20th/early 21st century. I'm neither movie star looking nor rich, but even I look better than my parents or aunts did at my age.

one of my greatest regrets about the limitations of human existence and our puny lifespans is that i will never know for sure how future historians and anthropologists will misinterpret various aspects of our daily lives. will some neckbeard buried with his vast collection of funko pops be hailed as a king due to the wealth of grave goods? will popular meme images be classified as religious imagery? and most importantly will this iconic work of paul rudd incorrectly be dismissed as nonsense? or will it be properly noted in the annals of history as the finest and most valuable art mankind has ever created.

There are the rare humans who are talented, artists and deep thinkers, with something important and insightful to say about the universe. Then there are true revolutionaries, those who challenge us to transcend our human condition and become greater, to see beyond, to become gods ourselves. Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ, Socrates, Leonardo Da Vinci, Einstein, Paul Rudd.

I just don’t understand why he hasn’t won a Nobel Prize yet and it reveals a deep bias, hatred even, within the Royal Swedish Academy that this hasn’t happened.

Just a reminder that Paul Rudd is currently six years older than Max von Sydow was when The Exorcist was released.

Keanu Reeves, by the way, is now older than Buddy Ebsem was when he started playing Jed Clampett. While I am on the topic of those Hillbillies, Irene Ryan was 59 when she started playing Granny. Women turning 59 this year: Nigella Lawson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Jane Lynch.

So, I grew a beard and grew long hair when I was 18 and keep that for decades. I was a nebulous sort of "somewhere around 35". In my late 40s I started to get grey in my beard and then I grew my beard out long and cut my hair short (I do still have hair), and I figure I'm going to keep this look and look to be a nebulous 60 for a couple of decades. My beard is nearly fully grey now, so I sometimes get given senior discounts at places without asking, and I'm only 51.

Also, Paul Rudd is charming and handsome and he grows a beautiful beard and how dare he only be a year younger than me!

Okay to be fair Max von Sydow was in old age makeup for The Exorcist! It was very good makeup but it could have been improved with a finger butt

Watching The Hot Ones over the years has been a surreal journey as the guests gradually transformed from "Niche Youtuber/Comedian/Artist who isn't nearly mainstream famous enough to get invited on early-seasons Dancing With The Stars" to "Oscar Winning Actress Charlize Theron".

Man I love Paul Rudd. We just started watching Living With Your Self last night. It popped up on Netflix, husband said “What’s it about?” I replied “I don’t care, Paul Rudd’s in it I’ll watch him in anything.”

He is a mortal man after all
