Liev Talking About His Kids on Ellen
He's ripped tequila shots on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and even starred in animated movies, but Liev Schreiber will "never be cool" in his kids' eyes. The 51-year-old actor recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres where he opened up about parenting two very hard-to-please tweens. "They're heading into that no-go zone for me. I don't want teenagers," Liev said before offering Ellen his 10- and 11-year-old boys. "You're never cool to your own kids. I don't know anybody who's cool to their own kids."
About five years ago, Liev told ex Naomi Watts that he was committed to making animated movies for their kids, but even after starring in hits like Isle of Dogs and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, he realized he was virtually unable to please Sasha and Kai. Their hilariously brutal feedback consisted of telling Liev that he was "just a voice," and complaining that he played a bad guy. "I've accepted the fact that it's impossible. I'll never be cool to them," he said.
You'll always be a cool dad to us, Liev! Check out his full conversation with Ellen ahead, and gush over the sweet photos of Liev and Naomi's kids.
