Actress Leslie Mann is one of those celebrity treasures that we can’t ever learn enough about. In addition to her famed marriage to Hollywood producer, director, and writer Judd Apatow, did you know these Leslie Mann facts?
Mann met her husband-to-be when she auditioned forThe Cable Guy, so she not only landed a big role, but also got the guy, too! During an appearance on LIVE with Kelly and Michael, Mann talked about her first date with Apatow: "He made me spaghetti with Ragu sauce, and Wonder Bread with Fleischmann’s margarine."

Mann and Apatow’s daughters, Maude and Iris, have appeared alongside mom in three films: Knocked Up, Funny People, and This Is 40.
Mann’s real life played out on the big screen, to some extent, in the movie This Is 40, co-starring Paul Rudd. The couple have explained in past interviews that the film is loosely about their life and marriage.
Mann has appeared in several movies that her husband has either directed or produced, including The Cable Guy, This Is 40, Funny People, Knocked Up, Drillbit Taylor, and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. She also appeared on an episode of Freaks and Geeks. They almost worked together again on the film Bad Moms, but both had to exit due to scheduling conflicts.
Apatow has a history of pronouncing her name wrong, as he calls her “Lez-lee” and she likes a softer “Less-lee.” During an interview, Apatow explained that he asked why Mann didn’t correct him and she said: “Because I thought you probably wouldn't be able to make the adjustment and I didn't want to be mad at you.”
