When a Young, Obnoxious Judd Apatow First Met Steve Martin

Vanity Fair just posted a behind-the-scenes video of a photo shoot featuring Judd Apatow and Steve Martin in which the two recount the story of their first meeting, many years ago. Judd was a young comedy nerd obsessed with Martin, and he actually went to the star’s house to ask for an autograph. Steve refused, and Judd sent him a pretty obnoxious-sounding letter, to which Martin replied with his latest book featuring a pretty perfect quip on the inside cover that’s only become more perfect with time.
