In his new film Wonderful World, Matthew Broderick portrays a has-been children’s folk singer and divorced dad struggling to maintain a connection with his only daughter. The latter aspect of the character held much more appeal for the real life dad-of-three than the former, he says in a new interview.
“Anything about a father and a kid becoming distant, definitely interests me a lot,” he explains. “The play I am doing now, The Starry Messenger, is about that too a little bit.”
Twins Marion Loretta Elwell and Tabitha Hodge, 7 months, are “pretty tiring” yet also “pretty good,” according to Matthew, 47, who adds that the girls are good sleepers.
In addition to the twins, Matthew and Sarah Jessica are parents to 7-year-old James Wilkie.
Wonderful World is in theaters now.
