Actor Vince Vaughn was unable to avoid the frosty clutches of Frozen phenomenon. His daughter Lochlyn, 4, is a big fan, but the celebrity dad worries that it might be damaging her just a little bit. He sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and joked about his very conflicting emotions over the much-beloved movie.
“I think Frozen is great, but it’s interesting to me because of the two ladies in the movie.
“[Anna’s] all in with the first guy she meets, right? He says, ‘I love you,’ and that’s the end of it. She’s just, here’s my heart, here’s everything, and then he turns out not to be the best of choices.”
“[Elsa] doesn’t want to get too close to anyone because she’ll hurt them, she’ll freeze them and she’ll cause them pain, so she has to shut herself out. So I wonder what a child psychologist would say about this … [My daughter] tells me she has to shut me out. She says, ‘I’m shutting you out, I’m not good for you. I have to be far, far away.’ ”
“A little role-playing, a little imagination is good, but I’m like, ‘Are we doing some serious damage here? ‘ And then she’ll freeze me and I’ll go along with it, so maybe I’m encouraging it. I say to her, ‘Well, you don’t have to shut me out because if you do freeze me you’ll kiss me to unfreeze me.’ But it doesn’t change the dialogue; I’m being shut out, I’m being frozen, I’m being kissed. It’s a very complicated roller coaster. I don’t think I’m alone. There’s a lot of girls out there shutting people out and freezing people.”
Vince Vaughnis notoriously private when it comes to his family and personal life. It is a rare, rare thing to see him out and about with his kids, much less bringing them along to a Hollywood event like this! But it’s not every day that your handprints and footprints are forever cemented at the Chinese Theater!
Vince’s wife Kyla Weber and their two kids, Lochlyn and Vernon, stood proudly by and watched him cement his legacy at the famed location.
I love Kyla’s smile above. It’s a “can we get out of here now, my face hurts from smiling and the kids are squirmy!” expression. How funny would it have been if Vernon wiggled his way free and stuck his hands in the cement?!
Vince Vaughn opened up about what it was like to date Jennifer Aniston. He said that it was “great” but there was a lot of attention on their relationship.
In a new interview with Playboy, he said, “You know, she’s great. For me personally – and I think most well-known actors who are together feel this way – I never enjoyed the paparazzi side of it. You like someone and you’re spending time with them; that’s separate and that was all fine. But I really spent most of that time finding ways not to be drawn into the attention.”
He went on to say, “I think lying low and not talking about it put me in a good position later. Because I just wasn’t part of anything.”
After they broke things off, Jennifer said, “I call Vince my defibrillator. He literally brought me back to life. My first gasp of air was a big laugh! It was great. I love him. He’s a bull in a china shop. He was lovely and fun and perfect for the time we had together. And I needed that. And it sort of ran its court.”
Vince and wife Kyla Weber will expand their family in August.
The actor broke the news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “This is the first time I’ve said anything,” Vaugh, 43, revealed. “We’re very excited.”
Vaughn and Weber, a Canadian real estate agent, tied the knot in January 2010 and welcomed their first child, daughter Locklyn Kyla Vaughn, that December.
The longtime bachelor, who has been tied in the past to Jennifer Aniston, said in 2009 “It’s the first time that I really want to have kids. I’ve been very fortunate in my career, and my life has been about that for so long that you get bored of it. You’re ready for your life to be about other people and other things.”
Also out this summer is Vaughn’s other baby, the movie that reunites him and Owen Wilson, “The Internship.” The comedy is expected to hit theaters June 7.
I love him.
Here’s the trailer for ‘The Internship.’ Looks like it might be funny!
