Some working couples would graciously deflect questions about whether they work well together. Leslie Mann doesn’t mind admitting that working with her director husband Judd Apatow can be hell.

Mann helped shape the script for the domestic comedy This Is 40, in which she and Paul Rudd reprise Pete and Debbie, the married characters they played in Apatow’s Knocked Up. And she just finished filming the reality-based Hollywood caper movie The Bling Ring with Sofia Coppola.

So how was Sofia?

“Sofia is like a warm bath, the exact opposite of Judd,” she says, sitting next to her husband while on a promotional visit to Toronto.
