Uh-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?
