Vince Vaughn on Imitating 'Frozen' With His Daughter: "Are We Doing Some Serious Damage?" (Video)
Still obsessed with Frozen? No worries — so is Vince Vaughn, via his daughter.
The Unfinished Business actor lightheartedly noted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that his four-year-old, Lochlyn, is obsessed with acting like Elsa "like it is her job. ... Elsa, which is the one that my daughter really seems to idolize, she doesn’t want to get too close to anyone, because she’ll hurt them, she’ll freeze them and she’ll cause them pain, so she has to shut herself out.
"I wonder what a child psychologist would say about this, but my daughter puts on the white wig and then she is Elsa, that’s who she is," he continued of the main character in the 2013 Disney hit. "And she tells me she has to shut me out. She shuts out everyone in the room. She says, 'I'm shutting you out, I’m not good for you. I have to be far, far away.' A little role-playing, a little imagination is good, but I’m like, 'Are we doing some serious damage here?' And then she’ll freeze me and then I’ll go along with it — so maybe I’m encouraging it — I’ll freeze, but then she’ll kiss me and unfreeze me. And so then I say to her, 'Well you don’t have to shut me out because if you do freeze me, you’ll kiss me to unfreeze me.' But it doesn’t change the dialogue; I’m being shut out, I’m being frozen, I’m being kissed. It’s a very complicated rollercoaster. I don’t know what I’m setting up for. I have no idea.
"I don’t think I’m alone!" he told the audience. "There’s a lot of girls out there shutting people out and freezing people!"
