October’s issue of Redbook features a really fun interview of actor and rapper LL Cool J by his daughter, 10-year-old Nina. The future Pulitzer winner quizzed her dad on his favorite Miley Cyrus song (“Party In The Usa”) and what it’s like to work on his hit TV show, NCIS: Los Angeles.
I actually enjoy it — you just can’t be Mr. Macho. I do about 90 percent of my own stunts, and the things I can’t do for insurance reasons, like swinging out of a flying helicopter, I wouldn’t want to do anyway.
Like any kid, Nina got to ask her dad on her favorite subject: presents! In exchange for straight As, Nina would like an iPad, a new phone or a puppy. Dad LL replies, “I’ll take you out for ice cream.”
