Ben Stiller Talks Failing As A Parent
Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler recently were interviewed in Cannes about their new film The Meyerowitz Stories. In the interview, Stiller talked about another job- aside from acting- that he has that’s challenging- being a parent.
“It’s definitely challenging in life because it’s something you care so much about,” Stiller said of parenting. “You love your kids so much. You want to give them the best possible life, right? You want to give them the best possible setup to go out into their lives.”
“Of course, as a parent, you’re constantly failing,” he added. “At least I am. And I know- you know- that… you never can be as good as you want to be. And the moments you do get it right, those are wonderful. Any parent will tell you you make these mistakes and you go, gosh, I wish I had done that differently. And all you can do is try to get better.”
This is one of those interviews that made us think- celebrities, they’re just like us.
