Judd Apatow Bashes American Idol Heartthrob: “Phil Phillips is Going Down!”
Man-child specialist Judd Apatow — director of Knocked Up and The 40 Year Old Virgin and producer of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Anchorman and the new film The Five-Year Engagement — called into Ryan Seacrest's radio show to talk about his new film, his daughter's obsession with One Direction and his actress wife's love for a certain American Idol singer.
"I was just talking to my lovely wife, Leslie Mann, about how I’m hoping Phil Phillips gets kicked off," Judd told Ryan. "She has a crush on him and I don’t like it. … Phil Phillips is going down!"
Hey now! Lay off P2!
"I don’t think it’s cool to have a name where your first and your last name is basically the same name," Judd also noted. "You can’t trust Michael Michaelson or Eric Ericson.”
