We’re surprised he isn’t more apprehensive!
Jerry O’Connell spoke recently about coaxing his 3 ½ year old twins, Charlie Tamara Tulip and Dolly Rebecca Rose, into the show biz.
“I’m trying to force them into the entertainment industry. My wife is a little more, ‘Let them find their way… I would love for them to be on the Disney Channel, maybe with a twins show of their own. Maybe they’re the new Olsen twins!”
Child stars live in the spotlight and every decision or mistake they make is magnified and scrutinized!!
Just ask Jerry himself!
After starring in quality films like Jerry Maguire and helming his own network TV show in Sliders, many people still refer to him as “the fat kid from Stand By Me!”
We agree with Rebecca Romijn’s assessment — let them find their way!!
Of course, this could have more to do with getting the kids out of the house so Dad doesn’t have to watch Disney any more.
“I’ve seen The Little Mermaid, I’m not joking, 700 times. Seven hundred times! I’m a grown man who knows all the lyrics. ‘Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?’”
LOLz!! Maybe U have a point!
