Will Arnett: I'm In The Process Of Scarring My Children

It’s not easy sharing your dad with another kid; just ask Archie and Abel Arnett!

In a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Up All Night star Will Arnett explained that things can get a bit confusing for his 3 and 1-year-old sons, who see daddy spending time with a “pretend baby.”

“I’m lying on my stomach, the baby is sitting on my back and I’ve got crayon on my face,” Arnett, 41, shared, describing a promotional poster for his new NBC comedy. “[Archie] said, ‘That’s Dada’s brother?’ And I said, ‘No, no, that’s Dada.’ And he said, ‘That’s Dada’s baby?’ And I said, ‘No, no.’

“He was explaining it to somebody else and he said, ‘Dada’s pretend baby put crayon on his face by accident,’ which is kind of sweet.”

Too sweet!

Still, Arnett says that it’s difficult saying goodbye to his boys when they visit him on set.

“When you have to say, ‘You have to go home now,’ and then he sees me working with another kid…its frustrating,” says Will, joking that he is “in the process of scarring his children.”

Though Archie and Abel also see their father with on-screen wife, Christina Applegate and mother, Amy Poehler, there doesn’t seem to be any confusion about Applegate’s role; at least, not entirely.

“We were at the mall and, outside the Victoria’s Secret, [Archie] saw this poster of a model and he said, ‘Christina!’” Arnett laughs. “So he thinks she’s a Victoria’s Secret model. A lot of women might say that’s sexist, but all women like it.”

    I don’t get why that would be sexist?? Most women AND MEN would love to be mistaken for a model.

    It was actually very sweet of little Archie to think Christina Applegate is a model. By Hollyweird’s sexist and ageist standards, she’s considered “over the hill” in her line of work.
