It has yet to be confirmed whether Mr Rudd slapped da bass during his visit to the seaside town.

Many believe that on a sunny day, there’s no better place to be than somewhere along the Irish coast.

Clearly, one person who holds this belief is Sexiest Man Alive Paul Rudd, who spent the day yesterday in Cobh.

Paul paid a visit to Cobh’s Titanic Experience, followed by a trip to the Commodore Hotel.

Paul Rudd sleuths will know his father was a Titanic historian, so he grew up hearing all about the Unsinkable Ship and its last port of call in Cobh.

Sharing the news of the visit on their Facebook page, the Titanic Experience Cobh team wrote:
We were delighted to welcome Paul Rudd and his family to Titanic Experience Cobh earlier today. Paul’s family have been regular visitors to Cobh in the past, as Paul’s dad (the late Michael Rudd) had a great passion for history and the Titanic story. As the last port of call, Cobh has a unique and emotive link to the story and we hope the Rudd family enjoyed our tour and our stories.

Paul Rudd revealed in 2016 on The Late Late Show with James Corden that he actually auditioned for Leonardo DiCaprio’s part in Titanic, but missed out on the role because he just ended up talking about how the ship was made.

He said:

I went into the audition talking about the kind of steel that was used and Harlan and Wolf who built it and they were like, none of this matters. 

Despite his unsuccessful audition, Paul admitted “I think the guy that got it was pretty good”.
Credit where credit’s due.
