“[I told her] to learn to write and write her own stuff, so she doesn't have to rely on everyone else to give her jobs,” Mann shared, while promoting her new film, The Comedian, in New York City on Tuesday. “That's good advice. That's pretty good advice, right?”
While chatting about how the girls show her “cat videos that have gone viral,” the 44-year-old actress noted that she doesn’t necessarily want her younger daughter, Iris, to get into the family business just yet.
“She just turned 14, so she's in school,” Mann said. “She's in eighth grade. I just want her to go to school and be a kid! For now.”
The Comedian opens on Feb. 3 and follows an ageing comic (Robert De Niro), who gets sentenced to community service after getting into a fight with an audience member. While doing his service, he meets a younger woman, Harmony Schiltz, played by Mann.
