Perfect dad/perfect man Chris Hemworth talked to Ellen DeGeneres about a moment he had with his 4-year-old daughter, India Rose, that left him flustered and struggling to come up with an appropriate response.
After noting that his new film involves being “rescued by these very powerful women” and noted that how he wants his own daughter to live in a world “where [women are] in charge of their own destiny and they’re not waiting for the prince to rescue them,” and revealed that he’s currently dealing with a bit of jealousy in his house.
“My daughter’s kind of envious of my [2-year-old twin] boys at the moment,” he said.
“She came to me the other day and she was like, ‘You know, papa, I want one of those things that Sasha and Tristan have.’ I’m like, ‘What do you mean?’ She was like, ‘You know, the things in between the legs that you have.’ I was like ‘Oh, um…Well, you see, girls…’ My brain’s like, ‘How do we handle this?’ I was like, ‘Girls have breasts.’ ‘I don’t want breasts!’ I was like, ‘OK. Um…’ She goes, ‘I really want one.’ I was like, ‘A penis?’ She was like, ‘I want a penis!’ I was like, ‘Oh, OK. Um…’ I was like, ‘You know what? You can be whatever you want to be.’ And she goes, ‘Thanks, dad!’ Runs off to the playground and that was it. I’ll have to pick that conversation up in a few years time. There’ll be a pill for it in a few years. She can probably have one. She can grow one.”
Love that. Watch him tell the story below.
