Matthew Broderick Makes Obscene Gesture in Front of His Kids (PHOTO)

OMG 19

Matthew BroderickUh-oh. We all make mistakes as parents, but it must really suck to be a celebrity and get caught red-handed by the paparazzi in the midst of doing something stupid.

You guys? Poor Matthew Broderick was photographed flipping the bird -- in the presence of his 4-year-old daughters, Tabitha and Marion. Yes, the bird. As in he flashed his middle finger to the paps -- probably because he was pissed about them taking his picture when he was simply trying to take a stroll with his kids.

And yes, the pic is just as embarrassing as it sounds.

Told ya so!

Yikes. It's hard to tell whether the little girl (Marion?) actually saw him give the finger or not, but I'm sure plenty of people will give him a hard time for acting "inappropriately."

But honestly -- who are we to judge? Oh come on, how many of you have accidentally dropped an f-bomb or other naughty word or flipped the bird in front of your kids? (Anyone? Bueller?)

If you insist you haven't slipped up from time to time, I'm sorry, but I just don't believe you. We all do this shit. (Oops.)

Sometimes we get so caught up in the heat of the moment that we forget we have very impressionable little eyes and ears in our company -- and the next thing you know our middle finger isn't in a position it's supposed to be. Happens to the best of us.

But just to err on the side of caution, Matthew might want to consider walking with his hands in his pockets from now on. Either that or maybe he should keep his hands in fists at all times -- at least when his twins are around.

What's the worst thing you've done in front of your kid?

Omg!!! He flipped someone off in front of his kid. Holy shit. Breaking news there!!!!


Really ?  Matthew and Sarahs privacy has been invaded before. Police actually broke into their surrogates home while she was carrying their twins to try to find info to give the tabs. So I'm sure he really could give a rats patoot about flippin the bird at a pap .

I'd probably do the same thing in his situation.

I really don't think it should be legal for them to take pictures with the kids with them.  These paparazzi are crazy and it just seems ridiculous that we aren't giving them laws to adhere too.  I really don't want to have to agree with Kanye West about anything, but he's right, about this and only this, we need to change the laws in this country.  I have a hard time blaming this parents for losing their tempers when they are doing better than I would.

I think those dorky looking glasses are waayyy more embarassing than flipping off the cameras in front of the kids.
