Early life and education
Apatow was born on December 15, 1997 in Los Banos, California. Her mother is actress Leslie Mann and her father is director, producer, and screenwriter Judd Apatow, whose family is Jewish. Her maternal great-grandmother was of Finnish ancestry. She has a younger sister, Iris Apatow, who is also an actress. In high school, Apatow participated in musicals such as Cabaret and Into the Woods. She also studied theatre at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois but dropped out after her sophomore year to pursue a career in acting.
Apatow began acting at the age of seven with a role in her father Judd Apatow's 2005 film The 40-Year-Old Virgin, though her scenes ultimately did not make the film's final cut. She then appeared in the 2007 film Knocked Up, which was also written, produced, and directed by her father. She and her younger sister Iris Apatow played Sadie and Charlotte, respectively, the daughters of their real-life mother Leslie Mann's character. She again appeared alongside her sister as the daughter of Mann's character in her father's 2009 film Funny People, playing the role of Mable. Apatow reprised her Knocked Up role in the 2012 spin-off sequel This Is 40, starring Mann and Paul Rudd's characters. For her performance in the film as Sadie, Apatow was nominated for the 2012 Phoenix Film Critics Society Award for Best Young Actress and the 2013 Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Feature Film - Supporting Young Actress.
In 2015, Apatow made a cameo appearance in the film Pitch Perfect 2. That same year, she also recurred in the fourth season of the HBO series Girls as Cleo. She appeared in three episodes of the series, which was executive produced by her father. Apatow then appeared in the 2016 film Other People as Alexandra Mulcahey. In 2017, she played the role of Meredith Whitcomb in the film The House of Tomorrow and made her directorial debut with the short film Don't Mind Alice, which she co-wrote and co-directed alongside Olivia Rosenbloom. The following year in 2018, she starred as Grace in the film Assassination Nation. The film's director, Sam Levinson, subsequently cast Apatow as a series regular in his HBO drama series, Euphoria, which debuted in 2019. She plays Lexi Howard in the series, a role that Levinson wrote specifically for Apatow. She will next star in her father's and Pete Davidson's upcoming 2020 film as the sister of Davidson's character.
Having joined Twitter in 2010, Apatow is noted to have a large online following, which helped her become a contributor to Zooey Deschanel's website Hello Giggles as a writer and interviewer. Her work on the site as well as her acting roles earned her a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in 2012. Apatow's Twitter account was named one of the "Best Twitter Feeds of 2013" by Time magazine.
