Maude doesn’t hide the fact that it was her parents’ fame that paved her way to Hollywood.
I have been shooting for my father’s movies from early childhood. I didn’t really understand what I was going on, but what I did understand was that I liked this. Now I’m working on my career on my own, but I’m eternally grateful to my father for the push.Shooting for her father’s movies wasn’t just an average school pastime for Maude, but a serious preparation for what’s to come. It was really nice to shoot my first roles alongside my parents - they taught me many things, but aside from that, it was convenient too, - confesses Apatow.
