Ad-Rock, "Older family man" via Daily Beast

by ParentCo. March 25, 2015

Daily Beast: You play a domesticated dad in While We’re Young, and you’re an older family man now. Was it tough for you to transition into that mode? You were pretty wild back in the day. Ad-Rock: No, it’s not. You just go with what you’re workin’ with, you know what I’m sayin’? My wife is the coolest person in the world and I get to hang out with her every day, and I’ve got great friends and I love my family… what’s the problem? So, as of today, I’m cool with all of it. Fifteen years from now, I don’t know. The only time I really notice is after basketball, or a lot of drinking. Although if you can still handle a lot of drinking at my age, that’s a bad sign. When you’re young, you just throw up and get back up again, but the spinning… I can’t do the spinning. I guess if you’re leading a healthy, grown-up lifestyle, your brain and your body are coexisting. And my back is killing me. via Ad-Rock on the End of the Beastie Boys, Iggy Azalea, and His New Acting Career - The Daily Beast.
