Vanity Fair Unveils Judd Apatow-Curated Comedy Issue
When Judd Apatow was 12, he was denied an autograph from Steve Martin in front of Martin's house. And the kid was peeved. "Dear Mr. Martin," he promptly wrote in a letter to Martin. "I think you are the funniest man on earth, but you treat your fans like crap. If I didn't buy all your albums and go to all your movies, you wouldn't live in that house. If you don't send me an apology, I am going to send your address to 'Homes of the Stars,' and you will have tour buses passing by 24 hours a day." Six months later, a gift of the book, "Cruel Shoes" arrived at Judd's home. Inside, Martin had written, "Dear Judd, I'm sorry. I didn't realize I was speaking to the Judd Apatow!"
Fast forward to 2012, when Apatow promises in the pages of Vanity Fair to quit telling that story -- if only because the magazine invited him to curate a three-cover special comedy issue featuring Apatow's funniest BFF's. The issue, which hits newsstands this week, features a slew of funny folks, including Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey, Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler. Megan Fox, Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig and Chris Rock also appear in Mark Seliger's 19-page portfolio spread. (VF)
