Jerry O'Connell bans twins from movie

Jerry O'Connell won't let his twin daughters Dolly and Charlie see his new movie 'Baby on Board' for at least 20 years

Jerry O'Connell has banned his daughters from seeing his new film.

The 35-year-old actor - who has four-month-old twins Dolly and Charlie with wife Rebecca Romijn - won't let his girls see 'Baby on Board' until they're in their 20s.

In the movie, Heather Graham plays a businesswoman who finds out she's pregnant the same day she sees her husband - played by Jerry - with another woman.

Jerry said: "Given the language and situations in 'Baby on Board', I'd say my daughters will have to be well into college before I let them see it."

Jerry found it easy to play an expectant father because Rebecca discovered she was pregnant a few weeks after he started making the comedy.

He added: "The funny thing is, we learned about Rebecca's pregnancy around the time I was shooting 'Baby on Board'. So maybe there's a bit of karma there."

However, he insists that is where the similarities between him and his character end.

He explained to the Chicago Sun Times newspaper: "If I was anything like the character I played in this movie, I probably wouldn't be sitting here as a happy father of twin girls right now. My point is, that fictional couple is nothing like my wife and me. Rebecca really wanted a child - and having twins is just a bonus."
