Alan Thicke may have played a wise psychologist on the TV classic Growing Pains, but he is sure giving some awful advice to his pop star son Robin Thicke about how to cement his power status in Hollywood.
The 66-year-old actor is raising eyebrows with a comment he made recently to Us Weekly about how Robin and his actress wife Paula Patton can reach even greater heights of fame.
Alan told the magazine “I told [Robin], “You’re a power couple now. If you only adopt a few Ethiopian kids, you’d be the next Brangelina.”
Ummm … no Alan. Just no. Even if it was meant to be a joke, it’s not funny.
Unfortunately it’s not the first time a Thicke has overreached in their comparisons of greatness. Robin told Vanity Fair magazine this summer that regarding his relationship with Paula, “we’re very lucky to have the greatest friendship; we’re John and Yoko — whatever that is — that’s who she is to me.”
John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Those are some pretty lofty comparisons guys.
