Judd Apatow Bashes American Idol Heartthrob: “Phil Phillips is Going Down!”

Somebody's jealous!

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.”

Ryan empathized with Judd, since his own girlfriend, Julianne Hough, has the hots for Phillip Phillips — and Ryan outed her crush earlier this week on Idol.

Maybe what the ladies like about P2 is that he doesn't broadcast their every romantic interest to the public, unlike their own men. But they also probably like that Phil's hot. That does help.
