Here's What The Cast Of "Knocked Up" Looks Like Exactly 10 Years Later

The Apatow girls have grown up — and Paul Rudd looks exactly the same.

Posted on

1. Seth Rogen as Ben Stone

Fun fact: The Dirty Man Competition came from the real-life friendship between Rogen and executive producer Adam Goldberg. They shared it with Apatow, who included it in the movie in order "to make this group more interesting."

2. Katherine Heigl as Alison Scott

FYI: Echoing several movie critics, Heigl told Vanity Fair in 2008 that she found the movie "a little sexist." "It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight," she said, "and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys."

4. Leslie Mann as Debbie

Fun fact: Mann told Collider that she initially "didn’t want to put [daughters Iris and Maude] in the movie," but her husband, Knocked Up director Judd Apatow, finally convinced her.

7. Kristen Wiig as Jill

Fun fact: Wiig's short but show-stealing performance in Knocked Up led director Judd Apatow to "[ask] her if she had any plans to write a script for herself." She did, and that script became the 2011 blockbuster Bridesmaids.

9. Dr. Ken Jeong as Dr. Kuni

Fun fact: Before becoming an actor, Dr. Jeong would practice medicine during the day and perform stand-up at night. His favorite compliment from patients was "I could never imagine a guy like you could do comedy," he told the Washington Post.

11. Iris Apatow as Charlotte

Fun fact: Iris, who was only 4 years old (!!!) when the movie came out, has recently garnered much attention for her role as Arya Hopkins in the Netflix rom-com series Love. (Iris and Maude are the daughters of Judd Apatow, who directed Knocked Up, and Leslie Mann, who plays their on-screen mother Debbie.)

12. Jay Baruchel as Jay

Not-so-fun fact: Jay, who's deathly afraid of roller coasters IRL, had a panic attack while filming the roller coaster scene. Director Judd Apatow apparently had to manipulate him into doing it.

13. Martin Starr as Martin

Fun fact: Starr nearly quit acting in the mid-2000s, but after the success of Knocked Up, "I couldn't really go back in time," he told the Los Angeles Times. "Anonymity is something you don't appreciate until it's gone. I'm a private person. I don't like to be gawked at."

Harold Ramis, who played Harris Stone, died in 2014.
