Take your daughter to work day. Friday’s @wendyshow 🤗
#tbt JUST released deleted scene from #TheRulesOfAttraction, via @roger.avary. Sean Bateman calling his older brother Patrick (yes, THAT Patrick Bateman... the #AmericanPsycho) to ask for money. I get why this scene was cut... which means I scraped the sh*t out of my knuckles on that pay phone for nothing. And broke the phone 😬. Link to the scene in my bio.
#tbt Last Thursday’s news ❤️🧡💛💚💙@poseonfx has already been picked up for a second season, so it’s safe to invest your time & heart. Start binging now & you can watch the season one finale live this Sunday 👍🏻👍🏼👍🏽👍🏾👍🏿 Tag a friend who NEEDS to watch or to watch it with you.
If you think I wouldn’t post about @GQ naming me “Best Dressed Man” this week, you clearly have no idea how badly dressed I was in high school. And college. And most of my twenties. 🙌🏻 @ilariaurbinati ・・・ #1 @GQ Best Dressed Men of the Week: “Van Der Beek’s look is proof that you don’t need to pile on the layers to look elegant, especially when the weather outside is pushing three digits” thanks GQ! @vanderjames in @thom__sweeney + @ovadiaandsons + @iwcwatches + @oliverpeoples + @davidyurman + @markcross shoes - styled by @ilariaurbinati
Ummm... So, yeah. Everything below is true 😬. #Repost @vanderkimberly ❤️ ・・・ Olivia then and now. Baby Olivia was decked out in mitts, colicky, nursed anytime she made a peep, put in front of the TV on a swing, we used the sound of an actual hair dryer to try and get her to sleep, she was swung much harder than I care to admit, we had her do tummy time even though she protested it, cried whenever we dressed her... well the list goes on. Parenting is, BIG TIME, trial and error and I didn’t have a lot of friends with kids. THE GOOD NEWS... Olivia is a fabulous young lady. She didn’t break. She had her own journey and being the first was a part of it. What she has always had is endless love from me and James. We did what we knew best and that’s all any of us can do. I share this because, while I have lots of advice for you after the fifth child, I was a first time Mom too. Sharing with you is THE ONLY reason I have decided to stay on Instagram. It takes time away from life. But I feel very compelled to share things that I wish I always knew. And I hope that it helps. 🦋🦋If you have children in your life, please share your top advice below. 🦋🦋 We all learn from one another. Mine: Get your information and then trust your intuition. There’s no one size fits all in parenting. 💗
The OG’s... then and now. Back then he used to wait until she fell asleep and then sneak into her bed... now he gets invited. Kids always come into this world on their own time, and in their own way... but if you’re debating whether to try for two back-to-back or to space them out... let me put in a vote for as close together as possible 😍 #siblings
Did this interview yesterday not knowing @poseonfx had been picked up for a second season. Swipe left ⬅️ to see how I would have looked had I known... Huge congrats to the cast, crew and creative team! Yet to be determined what my involvement might be, but psyched this saga will continue to have a place on TV. Good on ya’ @fxnetworks 🙌
“Daddy... it’s not like we get quiet like this every day.” #True Proof that when someone told me a key to parenting was to take your kids on solo trips... they were giving me #GoodAdvice. Tag a parent & pass it along ❤️
Man, life is crazy... life is beautiful. When I was 15, trying to land my first acting job, I’d walk through theatre row at dusk just to feel the energy, to soak in the excitement. I couldn’t afford a ticket to a Broadway show, but I’d save up to buy standing room every once in a while and dream of what it would be like to actually get to go back stage, see the machinery, talk shop with the actors... Today I had two tickets in my name for @anastasiabway... one of them for my oldest daughter. I watched her experience the magic of live theater, meet the stellar cast with stars in her eyes, and then hang out with one of my favorite humans - a woman who first played my mother on stage at 16 before becoming everyone’s all-time Grams - the supernatural #MaryBethPeil. So many crazy, frustrating, uncertain moments on this journey, but every in a while the universe clicks into place and you realize you just hit a jackpot. Tonight was one of those moments.
When the green room decor matches your wardrobe and you can’t hide your vibe. 💚 Interview up on @buildseriesnyc. We go niche: Talk Todd Solondz, character infrastructure, imperfections, and F Scott Fitzgerald in heaven.
I love it when my mic matches my shirt. Today 😊 @livekellyandryan to promote @poseonfx Sunday’s at 9 💃🏾
My entourage. @livekellyandryan
Been traveling with this one since the beginning... all of a sudden she’s a companion #DaddyDaughterWorkTrip
#ProTip: #Newborns have a grace period when the ambient noise of a restaurant actually lulls them to sleep. So reserve a booth at your favorite restaurant and take your baby momma out for a much-needed date before this window closes 👍 (#AndDontLetAnybodyCoughOnYourKid) @vanderkimberly
Can’t decide whether this looks like I’m trying to pose for a catalogue for clothes or for #babies.
#Protip: 5 kids, no sleep, 1,000 miles driven and extreme heat are not performance enhancers in the not-getting-sick deptartment. But they are all fun.
Hey @elonmusk... you got anything lying around @spacex that can cut through bureaucracy? (Pic by @pia.guerra via @the_nib)
This is not me watching TV. I swear 🤥. Curious why you started following me... Was it a specific project? Do you have a favorite? Or have you never seen anything I’ve done and just now realized you’re not following Jean Claude Van Damme? Anyway... lmk
@evanpeters is a really good f*cking actor. I realize this is hardly news, but I didn’t want to go without saying that one of the joys of working on @poseonfx was constantly having a committed scene partner with zero ego, whose first priority was the work, who listened and was present in every take of every scene, and who was so, well... just flat-out good that it made my job easy. It’s not a given to come out of a gig feeling like a better actor than you went in, but this one feels like that. And Evan was key. Thanks bud. Sorry for all the torture I put you through on screen 😬#GivePropsWhenDue. He really goes there in tonight’s episode. 9pm on FX
