Actors Ben Stiller and wife Christine Taylor raised their two kids Ella Olivia, 6, and Quinlin Dempsey, 3, in L.A., but the native New Yorker admits he regrets not raising them in the Big Apple.
“Raising them here is different because I was raised in New York City. It’s totally different. I grew up in the Upper West Side of Manhattan in the 70s. There were… fires and riots and serial killers. It was great. My kids, its L.A., its sunny and nice. They don’t have any excitement.”
Look for Ben in Tropic Thunder with Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. – which opens in theaters August 13th.
