What Zach Galifianakis' Kids Think He Does For A Living

Zach Galifianakis, known for portraying hilarious characters in movies like "The Hangover" (along with Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms, the latter of "The Office" fame) and "Due Date," has been making movie theater audiences laugh for over a decade (via IMDb). He's gone on to star on TV shows like "Baskets" and a hilarious web show where he interviews celebrities called "Between Two Ferns." He has had an impressive career!

As much as Galifianakis loves his job, he isn't thrilled with the lifestyle that comes along with it. At a press conference for his movie "Birdman," a spoof on Hollywood, he shared, ”Being a celebrity is (expletive). It's dumb. I'm not interested in it. I like to be an actor and that's it." He continued, "I'm just being honest. I would rather do my work and go home and watch Lifetime or something" (via AZCentral).

With an attitude like that surrounding celebrity life, it isn't surprising that his kids are unaware their dad is a famous actor. In fact, they think he has a more adorable job.

His kids have no idea their dad is a celebrity

Zach Galifianakis keeps a low-profile personal life. He's been married to his wife, Quinn Lundberg, for nine years. The pair have two sons together, who are 7 and 4 years old. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor shared that his children have no idea what he does for work. "My kids think I'm a librarian somewhere. They don't even know," he said. "They think I'm an assistant librarian somewhere."

Out of all of his roles, he plans to keep "The Hangover" a secret from his boys forever. He shared, "They shall never know of it." He added, "I'll just deny it. I'll say, 'I don't know what you're talking about. I had nothing to do with that movie'" (via People).

His kids will likely be the only ones who will never see "The Hangover." According to the actor, fans have commented to him on how much their children love the film. "People used to come up to me and be like, 'Oh, my kids love The Hangover' and I'm like, 'You're a terrible parent.'" He continues, "They need to mature a little bit before they see that."
