American celebrity Leslie Mann was born in San Francisco, California, on March 26, 1972. After attending acting school and obtaining parts in a number of advertisements and little pictures, she started to appear in successful comedies like The Cable Guy and Big Daddy.
Leslie J. Mann was born in San Francisco, California, on March 26, 1972. She and her siblings were raised by their single mother, who worked as a realtor to support the family. Mann had an early fascination with playing and started auditioning for commercials as a teen, receiving parts in ads for products like Coke and nail polish.
Leslie Mann took acting classes with veteran performer Joanne Baron in Santa Monica, California, and studied comedy together with the Groundlings, an improvisational troupe and acting school located in La. In the 1990s she began to receive characters in lesser-known movies like Things I Never Told You and Last Man Standing (both released in1996).
Although Mann had not started playing with a set idea about the kinds of jobs she needed, her gift for comedy soon became apparent.
When she was auditioning for The Cable Guy, Mann met Judd Apatow, who was among the movie ‘s producers. Mann and Apatow wed in 1997. Apatow cast Mann in several of his endeavors, for instance, short lived television series Freaks and Geeks (2000) as good as his enormously popular movies.
In 2010, Mann and Paul Rudd reprised their husband-and-wife characters from Knocked Up in Apatow’s This Is 40, a movie that apparently brought much of its own comedy from Mann and Apatow’s own wedded life.
Mann has also consistently appeared in other movie projects. She was featured in Mike Figgis’ experimental play Timecode in 2000, in addition to several comedies within the next decade, including Orange County (2002), 17 Again with teen idol Zac Efron in 2009, the Jim Carrey comedy I Love You Phillip Morris (additionally in 2009) and 2011’s The Changeup. She also had a supporting part in the independent play Little Birds in 2011 and voice-played a part in the animated, 3D children’s film ParaNorman in 2012.
Mann and Apatow have two daughters, Maude (produced in 1998) and Iris (produced in 2002). Maude and Iris have played Mann’s daughters in Apatow’s pictures Knocked Up, Funny People and This Is 40.
