"When my son was born we named him Jack Sullivan Rudd and my father said, 'I'm gonna build my grandson his own Irish pub.'

And about a year later, when he finished, I went to see it and he had Guinness on draught and everything, it's brilliant.

"It doesn't look like you built a pub in a house, it looks like someone built a house over a pub!"

And Paul Rudd was so impressed by his dad's handiwork, he was inspired to follow his lead.

He adds, "A few years ago, I bought a house upstate (in New York) and built Sullivan's East. It's amazing, it's got tin ceilings, a 30-foot bar, Guinness on draught. Shuffleboards, historical artifacts and stuff."
