LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Quincy Jones is still beaming with pride after heading to Park City, Utah last week to support daughter Rashida Jones at the Sundance premiere of her film, “Celeste and Jesse Forever.”
“I was so proud of her,” the proud papa told Access Hollywood of Rashida’s success, during an interview at the Los Angeles premiere of Cirque du Soleil’s “Michael Jackson The Immortal” on Friday. “To see she produced, co-produced, co-wrote and starred in [the film] — all [of my] kids are growing up… It’s amazing.
“It’s very satisfying and very rewarding,” he added.
Quincy gave the movie – which nabbed a distribution deal with Sony Pictures Classic at the festival, and also stars Emma Roberts and “Saturday Night Live’s” Andy Samberg – a rave review.
“I loved it!” he told Access, when asked if he enjoyed “Celeste and Jesse Forever.” “[Rashida] is amazing. She really is. I am so proud of her.”
While Quincy is thrilled to witness his daughter’s growing success (the 35-year-old actress stars on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” and was recently seen on the big screen in “The Muppets”), the father of seven said raising girls may to be blame for his lost locks.
“Daughters will take all your hair away,” he told Access with a laugh. “But they fill your heart up though!”
“[Age 13 is] the werewolf stage. I’ve got six werewolves!” he jokingly added. “One son and six daughters.”
Catch Rashida, alongside Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Adam Scott and Rob Lowe, on “Parks and Recreation” — Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c on NBC.
