Filmmakers often incorporate elements of their personal lives into their work, and few more so than Judd Apatow: His three most recent films as a director — 2007's "Knocked Up," 2009's "Funny People" and this year's "This Is 40" — star his wife, Leslie Mann, and their two daughters, Maude and Iris.
In this clip from the Envelope Screening Series featuring The Times' Rebecca Keegan, Apatow and Maude talk about how their father-daughter dynamic plays out on set.
"It just feels, like, normal because he's just a little bit more stern," Maude says of her father's directing style. "We have to take it seriously and get it done, and he does a really good job of keeping us on task."
"Because I'm a terrible parent, you know," Apatow jokingly interjects. "And so the set is the only place anyone listens to me."
