Judd Apatow "Admits" He Went Full Frontal For 'Popstar' & Now I Don't Know What To Believe
The Lonely Island is bringing the laughs with the release of their very own mockumentary film, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. However, now it seems as if the press tour for the movie has the hilarious trio pulling Judd Apatow into the mix — and not just because he produced the film. According to multiple Lonely Island members, Apatow may or may not have appeared nude in the film itself. And now Apatow has commented on the nudity rumors himself — only his sly comedic edge is only making things more confusing.
“Why did I do it? I just felt like I had asked so many people to get naked for comedy that in this instance I should give back and show that I can walk the walk,” Apatow spilled to People magazine. “So to speak. It’s not actually walking.”
Yep, I'm just as confused as you are. While my first instinct is to believe his confirmation of the news, it is important to point out that the rumors he is responding to were placed by Akiva Schaffer of the Lonely Island, who told Billboard in an interview,
It's actually his d*ck in the window of the car. He wanted to show it because he was like, "I've had this normal but really well-proportioned d*ck my whole life, and I've never shown it. And I'm afraid I'm getting older and going to lose the bod soon."
On top of that Andy Samberg told People, "We’re not supposed to talk about it. It's Judd Apatow. If you ask him, he'll confirm it. But far be it for us to say. It's his to say." And now I can't tell if this is all just one big practical joke the Apatow is going along with. I mean, when dealing with this group, one has to assume that shenanigans may ensue, right? Honestly, my brain just hurts right now.
But, whether this really did happen or not, the scene from the film in question is the racy and explicit moment when a fully naked male fan presses himself against the window of a limo. And, while the face of the person is unclear, fans are seeing a whole lot of someone.
When it comes down to it, knowing the successful funny man, he probably just went along with the group and also loves the idea of toying with fans' minds on the topic. Lonely Island member Jorma Taccone also commented on the rumor:
I guess all fans have to do now is wait until the topic comes up again sometime in the (hopeful) near future and try to see if any more information comes out about the true identity of the naked fan. And if somehow it really is Apatow... Well, sometimes you got to do what you got to do for your art.
