15 Actors Who Took A Role To Appease Their Adorable Children
Children are ruthless, vicious (and viscous) beings. They poop and cry and tantrum all over the place. Then, in the blink of an eye, they turn right around and give you—the parent—the biggest, cutest smile imaginable while doing a cheeky little giggle, and you're suckered into knowing you'll do anything for that child for the rest of their natural life. There's some evolutionary biology programmed into that response, this wild idea that the human species should both 1) perpetuate itself and 2) love its family members, and honestly? It's pretty unfair. Children have the upper hand over their parents, despite not contributing to rent or grocery bills or cleaning. Unconditional love leads you to maddening places, it turns out.
That idea morphs into something more public when you're a celebrity. See, oftentimes, writers and actors and performers do big-budget, massive projects just to appease their children. And thank God for the kids, because without their pestering, we wouldn't have such iconic characters as "Detective Pikachu" and… "peckish Larry David."
