Speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, John spoke of how he took Hazel and Violet to see his new movie, DC League of Super-Pets, in which he voices the character of Batman.

"They were like, 'Wow! You're not an accountant," he quipped about the girls' discovery. "They loved [the film]." John added: "They were laughing very, very hard. I think up until now they didn't believe I actually was in the business because they'd never seen anything I've done. It's like A Quiet Place? Not yet. Jack Ryan? Things like that? Nope."

She explained. "I don't want my kids to feel any more important or special or that there's a glare on them any more than other kids.

"If they can remain oblivious for the longest time, I'd be thrilled. They don't even want to see what I do. They don't even like it when I put on makeup. They don't like any of it! They just want me to be their mommy."

When asked if she and her husband would be open to their daughters following in their acting footsteps, Emily insisted: "God no—no! Please God keep them off the stage."
