LESLIE MANN (Audrey Griswold) has comedic timing and
standout performances that captivate audiences and critics alike.
Her upcoming projects include New Line's 2016 Valentine's Day release "How to
Be Single," in which Mann stars as a maternity doctor who hasn't found the right
partner with whom to raise a child and feels her biological clock ticking. "How
to Be Single" will also star Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson and Alison Brie. Mann
is also lined up for a voice performance in "The Croods 2," the sequel to the
hit animated feature set for release in 2017.
In 2014, Mann starred alongside Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton in Nick
Cassavetes' "The Other Woman." Also in 2014, Mann continued her well-established
voice performance work while reprising her role as Linda, the main human
character, in the animated blockbuster "Rio 2." Her previous voice performances
include the Oscar-nominated "ParaNorman," and "Mr. Peabody & Sherman." On the TV
side, Mann voiced Gina Winthrop on Jonah Hill's hilarious animated Fox
television series "Allen Gregory."
In 2012, Mann's stand out performance opposite Paul Rudd as Debbie in Judd
Apatow's "This Is 40" garnered her The Critics' Choice Movie Awards nomination
in the category of Best Actress in a Comedy. The movie reunites the trio from
the award-winning blockbuster "Knocked Up," with Mann and Rudd reprising their
characters from the earlier film.
Among her other feature films are "The Bling Ring," "The Change Up," "I Love
You Phillip Morris," "17 Again," "Big Daddy," "Little Birds," "George of the
Jungle," "Timecode," "She's the One," "Stealing Harvard," "Drillbit Taylor,"
"Orange County," "Funny People" and "The 40 Year Old Virgin."
A native of Southern California, Mann studied acting with the Groundlings
improv troupe. One of her first big breaks was a role in Ben Stiller's "The
Cable Guy," with Jim Carrey and Matthew Broderick. While auditioning for the
film, she met future husband Judd Apatow. This film marked their first
collaboration and the beginning of their creative professional partnership.
Mann and Apatow are longtime supporters of the non-profit organization 826LA.
Founded by Dave Eggers, the organization provides free tutoring and literacy
programs to students. Additionally, Mann and Apatow were honored with the 2012
Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program's Children's Choice Award for their
philanthropic contributions to support children, and their families, who are
dealing with pediatric cancer. In 2009, the couple was also recognized by The
Fulfillment Fund who honored them at their annual benefit gala.
Mann, Apatow and their two daughters currently reside in Los Angeles.
