"I did get arrested when I was 16 years old. It was a crazy story 'cause they had to call the parents, and they said, 'What's your dad's name?' and I said, 'Oh my God. Kurt Russell,'" he said on Live with Kelly and Ryan.

"They're like, 'No, kid, what's your dad's name?' And I said, 'It's Kurt Russell.' They started fighting over who was gonna make the phone call. It was crazy."

But when Kelly asked if Kurt was upset or understanding, Oliver added: "Look, we were stupid. We had paintball guns. We were doing dumb things, as kids do.

"He understood what it was like for him when he was the age; he did stupid stuff as well. But he was not a happy dad, let's just say that."

"He has this philosophy where I knew what I did was wrong, so why ground me? Just destroy your car and you will have to drive it for as long as you have this car," Oliver revealed.
