Ben Stiller: One Last Thing

Posted on

LAST ADVICE I GOT

My wife [Christine Taylor] is usually very good at giving me advice. I’ve been working a lot lately, and she said to just take a breath. Breathe and take it one day at a time.

LAST THING I WATCHED ON TV

The last thing I watched in full was the last [New York] Knicks game. I watch them all. It’s a difficult time right now, but we have to have faith. We just have to fight through this.

LAST TIME I DANCED

At a film wrap party, and it was really embarrassing because I’m not someone who is good at dancing or is comfortable dancing in public at all.

LAST THING I LOST

My wedding ring. The irony is I lost it in my wife’s handbag. I took it off to pick up a tennis racket and put it in her bottomless pit without telling her. A couple of hours later and it had already disappeared into the universe.

LAST MOMENT OF BLISS

At my hand-and-footprint ceremony. It was the first time my son [Quinlin, 8] had come to an event, and I looked at him running around and talking to these women reporters. He was batting his eyelashes, and they were fawning all over him. It just made me happy.
