Sometimes kids say the darndest things, and that includes the children of celebrities. During a recent appearance on “The Graham Norton Show,” actor Chris Pratt shared a hilarious anecdote about his 5-year-old son Jack. The “Jurassic World” star explained that Jack decided to take advantage of a special rule that Pratt has for him. Pratt says that both he and his son are allowed to swear — but only when they’re fishing.
Pratt and his son were posing for a picture with the fish they had just caught when the hard spine of the fish hurt Jack’s hand. Jack started to cry and declared the fish “stupid.” Pratt was surprised that Jack did not take advantage of the rule to be able to use a curse word, but when his dad asked him if he had anything left to say, he decided to let loose. Warning, there is profanity ahead.
“That bass is a f***ing p***y,” Jack told his dad.
Wow! It sounds like he really held nothing back. We’re as shocked as you are.
Pratt’s “Jurassic World” co-stars, Bryce Dallas Howard, Thandie Newton and Jeff Goldblum, joined him on the show, and Goldblum also shared some sweet stories about his son. Check out the whole funny clip below:
Although it can be both funny and maybe even embarrassing for us adults when kids let loose with foul language, some say that swearing can actually be good for us. Michael Adams, author of “In Praise of Profanity,” argues that swearing has a number of benefits, including bringing people closer together.
Professor Benjamin Berger agrees, and says there’s no evidence linking the use of or exposure to profanity to negative outcomes for children.
What do you think? Is it OK for kids to curse, or is profanity a bad look for minors and grownups alike?
