Ralph Macchio, 48, attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Karate Kid with his 14-year-old son Daniel on Monday (June 7). Ralph and his wife of 23 years, Phyllis, are also parents to 17-year-old daughter Julia.
Ralph and Pat Morita were the stars of the original Karate Kid film, which reached incredible popularity in the ’80s. Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan have some huge shoes to fill!
Ralph talked about the moment Daniel discovered he was once a teen idol:
One of my favorite moments was when my son found a whole bunch of newspaper clippings and magazines when he was 7, and didn’t know I was in the business. He came up, and was like ‘oh my God, dad was huge, and we missed it!’”
Do you think the new Karate Kid will be as good as the first?
