Greenfield, who walked hand-in-hand with his little girl, opened up to ET's Carly Steel about how it felt to having his daughter by his side to watch his latest project, and admitted that this was the first movie he's done that she was old enough to watch.

"I don’t think she would have understood The Big Short," he joked.

However, being able to watch one of his films with his kids seems to have piqued Greenfield’s interest in working on more family friendly fare.

"[I'll be in] as many as they'll have me in. They're so much fun," the 35-year-old actor exclaimed. "To have her be able to come to this, to have her be excited about it, it’s the best!"

Ice Age: Collision Course broaches the subject of parents dealing with an empty nest, and while Lily may still be quite a few years away from heading off to college, Greenfield says he's already started dreading the day. Which is why he devised a plan to keep her close to home: bribery.

"I told my daughter that I’ll buy her a car… if she stays in L.A. [and] goes to UCLA," Greenfield explained. "There’s a couple other colleges [that would work]. If they're local, she gets a car. Anywhere else, she's walking."

Ice Age: Collision Course hits theaters July 22.
