During the interview he was reminded that had previously awarded him a ‘certificate of Irishness’ and declared him to be an ‘honourary Irishman’.

Rudd was clearly proud of this and revealed that he has an Irish pub in his house where he displays his certificate.

He said: “I have an Irish pub in my house. I have [the certificate] on my wall, right behind my Guinness tap.”

Rudd takes his pub seriously and doesn’t just see it as somewhere to drink a few cans or bottles of beer.

The Guinness tap behind his bar isn’t just for show and he regularly buys kegs of Guinness to serve properly through the tap.

He continued: “I go to this place in Poughkeepsie to get kegs of Guinness, and I clean the lines, I hook it up and I have Guinness on tap.

“I know how to do the angle, I know how long it takes to pour the perfect pint, I know where to stop it – I work on it.. by myself… in the basement of my home.”

Rudd then revealed that he had gone drinking in a karaoke bar with Chris O’Dowd after they appeared together in the finale of O’Dowd’s show Moone Boy.

He also discussed his upcoming movies Antman and the Wasp, and the fourth Avengers movie which is set to be released next year.
