Paul Rudd’s new-found respect for ants + Michael Douglas’ affinity for the Clintons

Two things we confirmed this week: Ant-Man knows a lot about ants and Michael Douglas has the best stories.

Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) and Douglas sat down with EW’s Jess Cagle to talk about their new film, career highlights and, well, ants.

“They’re so weird. But incredible creatures,” Rudd said. “I have such a respect for ants now.”

Here’s his charming description of trap-jaw ants:

Douglas may know a bit less about insects, but his stories are just as impressive. Hear about his experience with the Clintons shortly after American President premiered.

“Needless to say I’m a big Clinton fan for that alone.”

And don’t miss his incredible story about working in Morocco.
