After working on Bridesmaids for “half a decade,” Judd Apatow had every right to be proud that the movie he produced was nominated for a Golden Globe.
But despite calling the acknowledgment a “very exciting thrill,” Apatow, 44, held back when it came to boasting about the feat to his family.
“Today was my daughter Maude”s 14th birthday, so I didn”t tell anyone in my family about the nomination,” the doting dad told us shortly after nominations were announced Thursday. “I didn”t want to distract from our morning festivities. I thought it would be rude to make it all about me.”
But that doesn”t mean the producer – whose film is nominated for best motion picture, comedy or musical – is about to brush off the nod.
“I”ll celebrate tomorrow when it”s daddy”s time to shine,” Apatow said with a laugh. “The nomination is completely unexpected. It”s very fun.”
We hope he had a completely hilarious weekend!
