Bio For: Leslie Mann
(The Latest Available Bio)

LESLIE MANN's (Linda) comedic timing and standout performances captivate audiences and critics alike. She most recently starred opposite Paul Rudd in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40." The movie reunites the trio from the award-winning blockbuster "Knocked Up," with Mann and Rudd reprising their characters from the earlier film for the writer/director. Mann's stand out performance as Debbie in "This Is 40" earned her a Critics' Choice Movie Awards nomination in the category of Best Actress in a Comedy.  She will next be seen in Nick Cassavetes' "The Other Woman," opposite Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton.

Mann continued her recent voice performance work in the Oscar nominated "ParaNorman," an animated 3D, stop-motion film from the team behind "Coraline," including writer/director Chris Butler, Focus Features and LAIKA.  Mann previously lent her voice to the character of Linda, in Carlos Saldanha's animated blockbuster "Rio," which grossed over $486 million worldwide and also featured voices by Jamie Foxx and Anne Hathaway. Earlier this year, Mann voiced the character of Patty Peterson in DreamWorks Animation's "Mr. Peabody & Sherman," opposite Stephen Colbert. In addition, she voiced Gina Winthrop on Jonah Hill's animated television series "Allen Gregory," for Fox.

In 2011, Mann starred opposite Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman in David Dobkin's "The Change-Up" and in 2009 was seen in the indie hit "I Love You Phillip Morris" alongside Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. The film premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and upon release was met with critical acclaim including a nomination for a 2011 Broadcast Film Critics Association Award in the category of 'Best Comedy.'

Among her other feature films are "The Bling Ring," "17 Again," "Big Daddy," "Little Birds," "George of the Jungle," "Timecode," "She's the One," "Drillbit Taylor," "Orange County," "Funny People" and "The 40 Year Old Virgin."

A native of Southern California, Mann studied acting with the improv troupe the Groundlings whose alumni include most of the familiar faces in comedy today. One of her first big breaks was 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 focuses on encouraging disadvantaged youth's writing skills by offering a range programs on-site at their tutoring center and for teachers to implement in their classrooms. Mann and Apatow's philanthropic contributions were honored earlier this year with the Bogart Pediatric Cancer Research Program's 2012 Children's Choice Award for their work with 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.
