Maya Hawke was wonderfully frank when she revealed that as a teenager, she got in trouble for lying to her famous parents, Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman.
“I said I was going to therapy, but I really went to lose my virginity,” the “Stranger Things” actress said on the June 20 broadcast of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
“My father was very, very upset,” the actor said.
While her father knew she hadn’t gone to treatment, he probably didn’t realise she went out to lose her virginity, according to host Andy Cohen.
“No, and he gave me a really hard time,” Hawke said. “He asked, ‘Where were you?’” ‘Where have you gone?’ “And I asked myself, ‘How am I supposed to have secrets if I’m not allowed to tell lies?’” she said.
She confirmed Cohen’s claim that Hawke’s father “respected” her forceful response. “He did. “He was like, ‘F— this kid,’” Hawke recalled her father’s exasperation at the time.
“‘Foiled again!’” said Hawke, who is presently starring in Wes Anderson’s latest film “Asteroid City.”
Despite previous doubts, Hawke told The Guardian in October 2021 that her parents, who married in 1998 and divorced in 2005, are supportive of her acting profession.
“They were wary of the public life aspect of acting and its difficulties.” They also attempted to keep me from becoming an actor. They wanted to make sure I had a strong enough backbone, as well as my own drive and work ethic. “They didn’t want to drag me down every red carpet or cast me in minor roles in their films,” she said.
“Once I was old enough, and it was clear they were my choices,” the “Do Revenge” actor said, “they were very supportive.”
