5) He’s Paul Rudd.
Remember up top when I said that Paul Rudd has some sort of secret “lightning in a bottle” that draws people to him and makes us want to be his friend? That is called “star power” or “charisma” or sometimes just “it”.
All bonafied movie stars have this intangible quality. It just means a person is so noticeable you never want to stop watching them. You’re desperate to know more about them and you can’t wait to see what they’ll do, say or wear next. It doesn’t always mean that someone’s likable for their personality traits, but…in the case of Paul Rudd, the two go hand-in-hand.
We would like Paul Rudd simply because he’s fun to watch, but we also like Paul Rudd because he projects all the qualities I’ve listed before. He’s nice looking. He’s silly. He’s been in our favorite films. He seems like a genuinely kind person.
To put it bluntly, we like Paul Rudd because he’s Paul Rudd.
