Bruce knows that his kids often find him embarrassing for no reason at all: “One day they’ll say, ‘Man, you rock,’ then another day they’ll say, ‘You’re embarrassing me! Don’t drop me off here. I don’t want people to see you. Please don’t come in the room.’ I think we more often play the role of embarrassing parents than cool ones.”

Kate thinks she embarrasses her daughter by trying to be too cool: ”I do have a tendency to be that sort of awful mother who thinks she’s really hip and completely relevant in my daughter’s life. So right now I just have to give Lily her space and try very hard to realise that, however much I would like to be, as far as she’s concerned, I am really not cool.”

Liam’s kids don’t want to be seen with him: ”It’s got to the stage where my kids sneak off and go, ‘You’re not walking with me man.’ I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m a f***ing cool dad!’ ‘No you’re not.’ ‘I f***ing am. All your mates think I’m cool anyway…’ ‘They think you’re a bit of a d**k actually’ It seems I’ve got a lot of work to do.”

Britney’s sons are growing up and find their star mother embarrassing sometimes: ”My sons are six and seven, so they’re just now getting to the stage of where you can’t kiss mommy in front of your friends and all that kind of stuff. They’re getting what’s cool and what’s not.”

Sarah Jessica Parker’s son doesn’t like her dancing in front of people: “James doesn’t like me using words he thinks I’m too old to use and I’m not allowed to dance in front of anyone. I would never dance in public in a million years but I do it in private just to annoy him. I used to do a special song and dance for him when he was a toddler, but now when I say I feel it coming on, he screams, ‘Nooooo.’ ”
