Ben Stiller Calls Daughter Ella, 16, 'Beautiful' After Their Golden Globes 2019 Date: 'So Happy'
"I'm so proud of him!" Ella Stiller, 16, said on the Golden Globes red carpet of dad Ben, who executive produced Escape at Dannemora
The star attended Sunday night’s ceremony with 16-year-old daughter Ella, where they celebrated Escape at Dannemora‘s two nods: best television limited series or motion picture made for television, as well as best performance by an actress in a limited series or TV movie — the latter of which Patricia Arquette took home.
Stiller, who directed and executive produced the Showtime limited series, expressed his gratitude and excitement over having his eldest child by his side on Instagram late Sunday evening.
“So happy to be with my beautiful daughter @ella.stiller tonight at the #GoldenGlobes!!” he captioned the father-daughter snapshot, adding, “So proud of #PatriciaArquette and her well deserved win!!! #EscapeAtDannemora”
Ahead of the awards ceremony, the duo walked the red carpet together Sunday at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, where Ella said it was “exciting” to be her dad’s plus one.
“I’m proud, I’m so proud of him!” she praised Stiller, 53.
“I thought it was a fascinating story and unbelievable that a prison escape like this could happen in this day and age,” Stiller said of his series. “It just seemed like it would be a great long-form story.”

Ella has become her famous dad’s go-to date recently, with the pair hitting events together several times over the fall.
Stiller and ex Christine Taylor often step out with their daughter, and caught a tennis match at the US Open in late August. Stiller and Taylor, 47, announced their separation after 17 years of marriage in May 2017. The two share Ella and her younger brother Quinlin Dempsey, 13.
