The teenager makes an appearance alongside real-life mum Leslie Mann in the comedy, and reprises the role in Judd's new movie This Is 40.

"She fell asleep at the halfway point, which was very insulting to us," the director - whose other daughter Iris also stars in the film - told Deadline.

Leslie added: "Their friends don't see the movies, and they just go to school every day, so they don't really know what they've done. It kind of doesn't affect them in their lives at all. But now that Maude is almost 15, it's probably a little bit different."

Leslie revealed she was proud of Maude's performance in the mid-life crisis movie.

"She's really good in it. And I think that can't hurt her. I don't know, we're very protective of them, and we're just going to do our best. I hope that it doesn't hurt them in some way," she added.
