Knocked Up director, Girls executive producer, and all-around comedic genius Judd Apatow dominated last night’s Hollywood Film Awards in Los Angeles with his quick-witted quips, scribbling down zingers and one-liners on a program before taking the stage to accept the Hollywood Comedy Award. He proved his worth by roasting a number of famous faces in the crowd (most material is not suitable for print!), all while donning a sleek suit by Ermenegildo Zegna. He talked to InStyle.com about his big screen reunion with hilarious actress/wife Leslie Mann in the upcoming film This is 40, due out December 21. “We always have fun together because when we make movies it’s the only time I’m allowed to truly tell her what to do,” Apatow told InStyle.com. “And that only works a quarter of the time on the set.” And when it comes to his clothing? “She’ll say to me, ‘Judd, please! Stop wearing that same shirt from when I met you 17 years ago!‘” he told us. “That’s her main fashion advice.” Whatever the couple’s style strategy, it’s working—they looked fabulous on the Emmys red carpet (above), where Mann chose a vivid yellow Naeem Khan gown!
