LESLIE MANN (Lisa) recently wrapped production on Robert Zemeckis' Untitled
Marwen Project with Steve Carell and Diane Kruger, which will be released by
Universal Pictures on November 21, 2018. Mann will also contribute her voice to
The Croods 2, the sequel to DreamWorks' hit animated feature, which will be
released in 2020.
Mann last starred in Taylor Hackford's The Comedian alongside Robert De Niro,
which was released in January 2017. In 2016, Mann starred alongside Dakota
Johnson, Rebel Wilson and Alison Brie in Christian Ditter's How to Be Single.
In 2014, Mann starred alongside Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton in Nick Cassavetes'
The Other Woman. That same year, Mann continued her voice performance work while
reprising her role as Linda in the animated blockbuster Rio 2. Her previous
voice performances include the Oscar-nominated ParaNorman and DreamWorks' Mr.
Peabody & Sherman.
In 2012, Mann's standout performance opposite Paul Rudd in Judd Apatow's This Is
40 garnered her a Critics' Choice Movie Award nomination for Best Actress in a
Comedy. The movie reunites the characters from award-winning blockbuster Knocked
Up, with Mann and Rudd reprising their roles from the earlier film.
Her other feature films include Vacation, 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 Joanne Baron/D.W.
Brown Studio and The Groundlings improv troupe. One of her first big breaks was
Ben Stiller's The Cable Guy with Jim Carrey and Matthew Broderick. While
shooting the film, she met her future husband Apatow, which marked the beginning
of their creative professional partnership.
Mann and Apatow are longtime supporters of the nonprofit organization 826LA.
Founded by Dave Eggers, the organization provides free tutoring and literacy
programs to students. Additionally, Mann and Apatow have been honored with the
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. The couple has also been honored by The
Fulfillment Fund at their annual benefit gala.
Mann, Apatow and their two daughters currently reside in Los Angeles.
