Quoted: Paul Rudd on bantering with Obama

Paul Rudd. (Evan Agostini/ Associated Press)

"If you’re not the [expletive] president of the United States, I can usually identify when you’re joking.”

Paul Rudd on meeting President Obama while shooting "How Do You Know" in D.C. The actor tells Playboy he was explaining that his charater is a guy who gets indicted, and Obama deadpanned, "Oh, so you're playing a congressman." And when Rudd went on about how no, his character was a corporate exec, blah blah, "Obama interrupts me and says, ‘It was a joke.’ I just felt so stupid."
