Max Greenfield Says His Daughter Is Following in His Footsteps: ‘She’s a Little Bit of a Performer’
But he’s not complaining.
“How am I standing? I’m not quite sure,” the New Girl actor told PEOPLE with a laugh at the Cinema Society & Belvederer premiere of Roadside Attractions’ Hello, My Name is Doris in New York City on Monday. “[But], it’s the best. I don’t know what I would do without them.”
In August, Greenfield and his wife Tessa Sanchez welcomed their son Ozzie James. Since then, they’ve received a lot of help from their daughter Lily, 6.
“She’s the best big sister anyone could ask for,” Greenfield says. “Sometimes I feel like she’s better with him than either me or my wife is.”
However, Lily is also finding other ways of making her dad proud, specifically by taking up acting.
“She’s a little bit of a performer,” Greenfield, 35, says. “She was in Mary Poppins recently and she played Mary Poppins, and she was Ms. Hannigan in Annie.”
Hello, My Name is Doris, starring Sally Field, opens Friday.
