Father's Day: Hollywood Celebrates Dads
Paula Abdul, Spike Lee, Dwayne Johnson, Olivia Wilde, Tyler Perry and Slash are among the many notable industry figures paying tribute on Twitter.
Father's Day is here: For many, its time for outdoor BBQ's, an excursion to the beach or perhaps a trip to the movies during the opening weekend of a certain superhero film.
Naturally, notable entertainment industry figures -- among them Paula Abdul, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Bacon, Olivia Wilde and Spike Lee -- are giving a shout-out to their dads or sharing notes they've received from their own family.
A selection of the actors, directors, musicians and comedians paying tribute to dads on Twitter:
