Paul Rudd, known for looking vampirically youthful over the past 20 years, has given insight into how he manages to stay looking so fresh.
And it’s a rather simple method for the Clueless and Ant-Man star – ‘sleep’.
Now, everyone gather around…
In a new interview, the 53-year-old gave a basic walkthrough of what he prioritises to keep fit and healthy, revealing that there is no particularly fancy diet or workout regimen attached (although he does do both of those things too).
‘Sleep. Then diet. Then weights. Then cardio. People ask me, “Can you send me your meal plan? How many times a week do you work out? Do you drink? Do you eat carbs? Do you have a cheat day?” The most important part of training is sleep,’ Rudd revealed.
He added: ‘People will set their alarm and then sleep for four hours and they’ll get up so that they can train. They’re doing themselves a disservice. If you can somehow get eight hours of sleep…’
The star also shared that he lifts weights, ‘hopefully at least three times a week’, and aims to do cardio first thing now that he has a superhero physique to maintain – it’s not something he would have done before the MCU came knocking, and helps him ‘feel less like an imposter’.
People’s former Sexiest Man Alive for 2021 also maintains a pretty simple diet of eggs every day, plenty of salmon and has protein shakes with just a blend of protein powder and water.
‘It sounds like hell. It’s really not. I find routine comforting,’ he told Men’s Health.
Rudd also praises routine as ‘a human need’ and ‘grounding in a really positive and healthy way’ – especially considering he doesn’t have an office to go to every day.
The actor admitted that he ‘worked really hard’ to get back into shape for the upcoming Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, finding it ‘so much harder’ than last time because he had ‘fallen off more than I had in the past’.
He also has a delightfully humble response to a question about the world’s obsession with his youthful appearance and him seeming to not have aged as quickly as other men in their fifties.
‘I see some things that people are politely not acknowledging. I’m certainly happy that people don’t say the opposite. Like, God, he looks a hundred years old!
‘It’s flattering, but at the same time, I never know what the response is supposed to be.’
In the Ant-Man threequel, which heralds the official beginning of Phase Five of the MCU, Rudd’s character Scott Lang faces-off against supervillain Kang The Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors.
It also stars Evangeline Lilly, reprise her role of The Wasp, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfieffer , Kathryn Newton and Bill Murray.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania comes to cinemas on February 17, 2023.
