Here is a look at the life of the very successful actor, Paul Rudd’s wife.

Love at First Sight
Paul Rudd met Julie Yaeger in New York on the first day he arrived in the city for the progression of his acting career. That was in 2005 and Julie was working at the publicist’s office that Paul’s agent had hired as a PR team to promote his 2005 film, Clueless. Paul had arrived at Julie’s office with his luggage late in the evening. Being new in the city, she helped fix his accommodation. A few days later, Paul invited Julie for lunch, and the rest is history.
