Will Arnett & Katherine Heigl join forces to talk kids and their new movie The Nut Job

Celebrity Baby Scoop recently caught up with Will Arnett and Katherine Heigl to talk about their kids and their new animated movie The Nut Job.  When asked about balancing their career and family, Will shared, “Anyone who’s a parent knows that it is a balance and that you’re always trying to find a way; I try to reverse engineer it, to look at what my family demands are and what my kids need and then kind of work backwards from there, and then retro fit everything into it.  I feel very blessed when you get to work on something like this that doesn’t take you away from the kids.  Anything that takes me away from my kids, I dislike.”  Did having kids impact their decision to take on these roles? Katherine said, “I just really wanted to do something that I could show my kids that we could watch together, and we watch movies every night.”  Will agreed saying, “Yeah, it did for me.  I also watch a lot of these animated films, and I’m a huge fan of a lot of it, there’s a lot of really good stuff out there, and it is important to me at this stage in my life to do stuff that I can share and enjoy with my kids and that they can watch.  That’s much more important and now that’s what I kind of want to do.”  When asked which animated movies they enjoyed as kids, Katherine added, “The Little Mermaid.  I have a 5 year old and a 1-½ year old.  The little one is more of a tomboy but the bigger one is obsessed with princesses – to the point of exhaustion.”
