Jack Black’s children don’t know he’s famous

Gulliver’s Travels actor Jack says he wants to keep his profession hidden from his toddler and preschooler for as long as he can

Comedy actor Jack Black has admitted his two young children have no idea he’s famous.


The star told reporters at the premier of his new film, Gulliver’s Travels, that he didn’t bring sons Samuel, 4, and Thomas, 2, with him to see the movie because they don’t have a clue that’s he’s a famous actor.

“I didn’t bring my babies because they don’t know I’m famous yet,” said Jack. “I’m trying to keep it well hid. They’re like, ‘Whatever. Daddy’s daddy.’ They think I’m a salesman!”
