Jennifer Lawrence has credited her father for her sense of humour.
The Silver Linings Playbook actress is known for her quick-witted quips – such as joking that her dress meant to fall down when she suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January – and she says her dad always encouraged her to be funny.
“My dad always told me, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. And have a good sense of humour,” she told US magazine Popular Mechanics.
While the 22-year-old beauty’s father gave her life advice, World War Z star Brad Pitt says his dad instilled a more practical skill in him – the art of fishing.
In a feature celebrating Father’s Day, which takes place on Sunday, he said: “My dad took my brother and me fishing all the time–seemed like we’d go every weekend. Dad taught me how to cast the rod.”
Now a dad himself, the 49-year-old hunk will be looking forward to celebrating the special occasion with his six children – Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – with fiancée Angelina Jolie.
The actor recently revealed he signed on to star in his upcoming zombie thriller World War Z so he could share the movie with his sons Maddox, Pax and Knox.
“This whole thing started because I just wanted to do a film that my boys could see before they turned 18 – one that they would like, anyways,” he said.
“And they love a zombie. So we settled on this book, Max Brooks’ book, called World War Z.”
