While movie premieres might be an event to bring out all and sundry for many stars, funnyman Jack Black does not believe in the same. The actor refuses to turn his film premieres into family affairs, because his two young sons have no idea that they have a famous father. The School Of Rock star admits, he’s yet to tell four year-old Sammy and Thomas, two, exactly what he does for a living – and he’s keen to keep it that way.
Speaking at the Los Angeles premiere of his new movie, Gulliver’s Travels, he said, “I didn’t bring my babies because they don’t know I’m famous yet. I’m trying to keep it well-hid. They’re like, ‘Whatever. Daddy’s Daddy.’ They think I’m a salesman.”
Black isn’t the only celebrity parent keeping his star status under wraps from his little ones – the comedian’s Shallow Hal co-star, Gwyneth Paltrow, recently admitted, she had been hiding her profession from her two children, until her six year-old daughter, Apple, found out that she was famous, from her classmates.
