Earlier in the interview, Hartley opens up about his 14-year-old daughter, Isabella, who he invited to join him for the recent premiere of This Is Us. At the event, Hartley noted that his agent offered representation to Isabella.
"She kind of was like, ‘Yeah, uh, well, I mean, there’s a few things I’m interested in. I’m not quite sure I want to go down that road,’” he says. "And I’m like, ‘Babe! It took me years to get anyone to pay attention to me!’ But whatever, good for her, she’s too cool for school.”
Hartley also gushed over his daughter while chatting with ET's Katie Krause at a pre-Emmys party, and what it's been like having a high schooler in the house.
"It’s either going to go one way or the other. She’s either really going to enjoy high school or she’s going to hate it and it’s going to be this horrible thing. And she loves it so that’s good," he shared. "As long as we’re kind and we forgive people and we listen to people, you know that’s what we’re built for I think. So, that’s the sort of things that I teach her and she’s I think her school has those values as well -- so it’s nice. She’s enjoying it."
