Paul Rudd can’t let go of his Anchorman 2 hair. The actor displayed his new ‘do at the Cinema Society premiere for his most recent film Prince Avalanche (out August 9), and explained to IFC why he kept growing it even after Anchorman 2 wrapped.
“I hold on to these things, because it’s kind of tough to shake them right when you finish them,” he said. “It just becomes a part of who I am, and to just change as soon as you wrap something, it seems disingenuous. My characters need to ooze out of me, like wet cement, or an old tube of toothpaste, or a new bottle of ketchup, where it’s really slow and it takes its time.”
To demonstrate, he started singing the Carly Simon jingle for Heinz ketchup: “Anticipation!” “Remember that?” he asked. “Ah, we both enjoyed that little moment right there.”
