“She’s very vocal about it, and she occasionally says things I don’t want to hear.” “It’s difficult to hear,” he said. “Because it’s me not being there in the same manner that my parents weren’t.” And I’d always thought to myself, “Well, I’m not going to do that.”
“But then there’s that issue where I was trying to negotiate my own desire to realize my own ambitions and dreams.” And although it isn’t pleasant, it is necessary to recognize.”
Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara were a successful comedic combo in the 1960s and 1970s when Stiller was born.
Stiller and his wife Christine Taylor have two daughters, Ella, 19, and Quinlin, 16, with whom he co-starred in “Zoolander.”
He told Esquire, “What I’ve learned is that your kids aren’t keeping score on your job.” “It would be naive to believe that my children are concerned about it.” They just want an emotionally present and supporting parent. That’s definitely more important to them than for me to go out and test the limits of my imagination.”
Stiller has appeared in over 50 films, including the “Meet the Parents” trilogy, and has written, directed, or produced many of them.
