Children sometimes give their parents a glimpse at what will become their adult personalities, and if that’s the case, Rachel Weisz and Darren Aronofsky‘s 2 ½-year-old son Henry Chance may just become a comedian! At the Gotham Independent Film Awards, Rachel shared that her baby boy is doing "really well" and that he has "a good sense of humor." Sheepishly, dad Darren then added that Henry’s approach to humor may not please everyone — he "does an R-rated knock knock joke in G-rated language."

"I said to him, ‘Say knock knock’, so he did, and I said, ‘Who’s there?’ He thought for a while and went, ‘The doorman.’ I told him that wasvery good, the man at the door. And I said, ‘The doorman who?’ and hereplied, ‘The doorman caca.’ I thought, pretty good, he did hisfirst poo-poo joke."

Henry is the first child for actress Rachel, 38, and director Darren, 39.

Ok, colour me stupid, but I really don’t get how this is an R rated joke…am i missing something? Either that, or my sense of humor is dumber than a two and a half year old.
Henry seems like a delight, a sense of humor is so important in children (and adults!). I can’t wait to see Rachel in The Lovely Bones!

I don’t get it. Am I missing something?

It’s not really R-rated, Darren was just making a joke about Henry’s joke. 🙂 🙂
