This has been a good season for actors, with some unusually interesting and outstanding performances on view on the big and small screens. For instance, the film, “The Other Woman,” showcased a number of unexpectedly strong performances from actors who are not all that well-known to viewers.

Judd Apatow has a novel “rule” when he’s directing his wife, Leslie Mann, in her make-out scenes with actors. “It depends on the person,” he said with mock seriousness. Judd directs Leslie and Paul Rudd in the comedy, “This is 40.” “If I think Leslie likes it, we don’t do many takes. If I think she’s disgusted, I make them do it all day. It’s a sadistic aspect. I know Leslie and Paul don’t like it, so I don’t mind. It makes me laugh.”
