Stanley Tucci: Fatherhood Is Not An ‘Easy A’

Stanley Tucci: Fatherhood Is Not An 'Easy A'

Stanley Tucci plays a laid-back dad in the new movie Easy A, but in an interview with Reuters the actor says he would never be as permissive when it comes to his own three kids, daughter Camilla, 8, and twins Isabel and Nicolo, 10.

In the movie, the Lovely Bones actor plays the father of a teenage daughter who spreads false rumors of her own promiscuity. As the dad, Stanley stays cool through the whole ordeal but he says in this case art doesn’t necessarily imitate life.

“As a parent, it would be great if I could be as relaxed as these people in the movie are,” Stanley laughed. “It’ll never happen. But a thing that I have in common with Dill is that I do joke around with my kids. We laugh a lot. But again, I couldn’t let go that much – no way.”

Stanley says his kids come first when he’s considering a movie role, and Easy A was no exception – it came his way roughly 18 months ago just after his wife Kate died of breast cancer in April 2009.

“This was the first movie I had done since she died, and I hadn’t worked for a while,” he said. “And they were very kind, and condensed it (his shooting schedule) into three days.”

His next role, as mad scientist Dr. Abraham Erskine in next summer’s big-budget action flick Captain America: The First Avenger, proved to be a little more demanding.

“I was gone for over three weeks, and that was a little hard,” he admits. “The kids were okay because it was summer. They were having a great time. But I have to orchestrate things very carefully. I always did, but particularly now because I’m a single father, I can’t go away for too long.”

    Are you sure you’re describing the right movie here? Have you seen The Lovely Bones?

    They’re referring to him as ‘the lovely bones actor’ not the movie itself.

    Uhm… I’m pretty sure that in the Lovely Bones he was the pedophile who killed all the little girls.
