Paul Rudd admits he felt slightly uncomfortable on the set of the final episode of Friends.

In Season Nine of the iconic sitcom, Rudd joined the cast as Mike Hannigan, a love interest of Phoebe. The pair would eventually marry in Season 10, cementing Rudd's status as one of the more vital supporting characters of the series.

However, he felt that, as he joined the cast so late in a supporting role, he probably should have been absent for the emotional final scenes.

"The whole thing was a bit surreal, I must say, to be a part of that because I came on really at the end," he told Heart Radio.

"I never knew that I was going to be in as many (episodes) as I was. But it also felt strange. I was in that last episode, and I just thought, 'I shouldn't be here. I'm getting a front-row seat to things I'm not supposed to see.'

"They were all crying, it was all emotional, and I was just like, 'Woah!' I felt very privileged, but I also was like, 'I just, I don't know. I just want to sit back here.'"

The Friends finale aired on 6 May 2004.

Will Rudd return as Ant-Man?

Since 2015, Rudd has played Ant-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and last appeared in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

The movie saw Scott Lang and his family transported to the Quantum Realm where they encountered Kang the Conqueror played by Jonathan Majors. Rudd says that, although we won't see Ant-Man in the MCU again, we'll be seeing plenty of Kang, at least that is what Rudd promised.

"Maybe it is the end of Ant-Man," he predicted.

"I don't really know. As far as what's next, the only thing I can say for sure is that the Kang the Conqueror is going to be a very big part of whatever it is."

Since the release of Quantumania, Majors has been involved in legal issues including an accusation of assault which has thrown his future with Marvel into doubt.
