Before he was famous, he asked his comedy hero, Steve Martin
, for his autograph, but Martin refused (he didn't give autographs at his home). Afterwords, Apatow wrote him a nasty letter with some nicely placed profanity.

The films he directs are either near or well over two hours, uncharacteristic for comedies.
