Mike Myers‘s kids are underwhelmed when it comes to their dad’s hit acting career.
Mike, 59, admitted to PEOPLE at the New York City premiere of his new film Amsterdam on Sunday how his three kids aren’t very excited about anything he does, even if he got to work with Taylor Swift on the David O. Russell-directed movie.
Mike Myers Reveals What His Kids Really Think About His Acting Career
“They’re remarkably unexcited about anything [I do],” says Myers. “You know, which is great.”
Myers shares three children, daughters Paulina, 6, and Sunday, 8, plus son Spike, 10, with wife Kelly Tisdale.
Amsterdam, a crime comedy and thriller, follows three close friends — a doctor, a nurse, and an attorney – as they set out to prove their innocence in Amsterdam after they’re caught in the center of one of the most secret plots in American history.
Along with Swift and Myers, the star-studded cast also includes Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Zoë Saldana, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Rami Malek, and Robert De Niro.
Regarding working with so many big names on the film, Myers says he feels “super honored to be a part of it.”
“It’s a very cool movie that I’m so thrilled to be part of,” he adds. “It felt like I was doing a movie at Madame Tussauds.”
Myers told the outlet in 2018 how one of his kids had taken an interest in the Austin Powers franchise. Austin revealed how his son Spike “keeps asking me, ‘Where’s the fourth Austin Powers?’, which is the weirdest thing. I’m like, ‘Get off my back. I’m doing my best.’ “
Myers said Spike was falling asleep one night and asked if there would be a fourth installment to the franchise. “And I said, ‘I’d like to. I don’t know.’ Then he said, ‘What’s Dr. Evil’s lair?’ And I said, ‘An oil rig,’ and he said, ‘What’s an oil rig?’ I said, ‘It’s where you drill oil at sea.’ “
“He goes, ‘It should be a sewer,’ and fell asleep,” the actor added. Classic kids, always telling it like it is and keeping us humble, eh?
