Paul Rudd was joined by his wife, Julie Yaeger, on the green carpet before the Oscar Wilde: Honoring the Irish in Film gala in LA. The comedian, who wasn't born in Ireland and isn't Irish, was presented with the "Honorary Irishman" award by Julia Roberts. Paul and Julia, who often supports her friends in the business, became close when starring in Three Days of Rain on Broadway in 2006. Paul took the stage to accept the honor, saying, "I am so grateful, I am honored, I am humbled . . . And I'm Irish." It was another star-studded event hosted by the US-Ireland Alliance, after last year's brought out Tom Cruise to salute his pal J.J. Abrams. Mad Men's Jon Hamm was in the audience to support Paul, as was new dad Orlando Bloom. Jon kept the party rounds going by also hitting a Grey Goose bash with Leonardo DiCaprio.
