Paul Rudd Succeeded Where Ryan Gosling Couldn't — He Made It Through This SNL Skit

How does Paul Rudd keep a straight face with Kate McKinnon crawling all over him? No, I'm genuinely curious because the man has succeeded where many others have failed. Rudd hosted Saturday Night Live's season finale on May 18 and participated in a skit familiar to actors Ryan Gosling, Brie Larson, and Liev Schreiber.

He joined McKinnon and Cecily Strong in a"paranormal encounters" sketch, which is a fan-favorite for getting hosts to break character, but Rudd held strong. He kept his cool as McKinnon thrusted against his neck and stuck her tongue in his ears, never letting a tiny smile or chuckle betray him. Sorry, but Gosling could never. Watch the full skit above to see Rudd's impressive feat — he's the only host to ever make it through without breaking.
