Jason Bateman - Jason Bateman: My kids won't go into acting

Jason Bateman doesn't want his children to go into acting.

The 'Arrested Development' star - who has two daughters, Francesca, six, and 17-month-old Maple, with his wife Amanda Anka - will happily help his offspring land the job of their dreams but isn't keen on them following in his footsteps and entering the showbiz world.

He explained: ''I want to help my kids navigate their careers but I don't want it to be in the entertainment industry. Acting is kind of an odd way to make a living and I hope they'll be drawn to something other than that.''

Jason - who became a high-profile teen actor in the 1980s - believes that acting can be a tough industry to crack and he doesn't want his daughters to have to deal with the disappointment that comes with being an actress.

Speaking to the Metro newspaper, he said: ''I want my daughters to be very passionate about what they want to do and to be very unapologetic about wanting success in that field and sometimes in acting they sense you want it too much. Plus you can't really get a diploma or a degree that guarantees you employment - that's a little frustrating in that sense.''
