Michael Sheen has received critical acclaim for playing Tony Blair in The Queen and David Frost in Frost/Nixon. Now he’s taking on a role that his 10-year-old daughter Lily Mo is excited about: the creepy vampire Aro in the much-anticipated Twilight sequel, New Moon. The 40-year-old ex of Kate Beckinsale talked to Parade about Lily Mo’s shock when he announced his new role and her film debut in Robert De Niro’s new flick.
On how Lily Mo got a literal kick out of the news he was starring in New Moon: “I was excited about being in New Moon mainly because I thought it would make my daughter Lily very happy since she loved the books and the first movie. But, she was a bit overwhelmed. It was like when I was kid–if there was something I was really into, the last thing I wanted was my mom and dad to be into it as well. So, at first, Lily got upset and sort of cried when I told her. I think it was just like her fantasy imaginative world suddenly colliding with reality. She did punish me a bit. When she kicked me, I think that was sort of acting out her frustration.”
On Lily Mo’s film debut: “My daughter is in Everybody’s Fine. I couldn’t believe that her first role in a major film puts her mostly in scenes with Robert De Niro. I totally admired him growing up, and he was a large part of what made me want to be a film actor. So I said to Lily, ‘What did you call him? Did you call him like, Bobby or Mr. De Niro?’ And she went, ‘No, I called him Sir.’ So I said, ‘Right. And from now on you shall call me Sir…'”

Mom-to-be Kourtney Kardashian tells Us that she still hasn’t found out the sex of her baby.
“I think I want to know soon just for planning purposes,” says the 30-year-old reality star. “I ordered a few things, some neutral stuff, but I want to order other stuff. I’m in nursery planning mode.”
Sister Khloe Kardashian, fresh from her nuptials, is frustrated: “She doesn’t know the sex, so it’s difficult because we see things we want to buy. We can only buy neutrals. When we know if it’s a boy or a girl, I can buy more cute things.”
Mom Kris Jenner tells Us that so far no plans for a baby shower have been finalized: “We are working on it!”
Kourtney, due in December, adds that boyfriend Scott Disick is “so excited” to be a father: “He’s going to be a great dad.”
