Now the father of four is sharing his passion with his daughter 24-year-old Gracie (whom he shares with ex-wife Kelly Phillips). The father-daughter pair guest-star on an episode of Fox’s The Cleaning Lady.

I know the realities of how difficult it is even with the successful career,” says Phillips. “The amount of rejection, the amount of hard work, the criticism that comes from putting yourself out there. There is all of that. And so that’s why I’ve never pushed any of the girls into the arts, even when I saw that they had the inherent talent. I wanted it to be a personal choice for them.

But being on-set and seeing [グレイシー] bring it was so gratifying,” says Phillips.
