The 49-year-old star of 1998 movie The Truman Show explained that Jackson ‚Äď the son of Jim‚Äôs daughter Jane who was born in February last year ‚Äď is ‚Äúvery funny‚ÄĚ and employs a whole host of skills to avoid eating meals.
Jim said Jackson has ‚Äúthis mischief on his face that you can just tell that he knows he‚Äôs going to be completely accepted in every way‚ÄĚ, while adding that the tot already understands people ‚Äúwant to see me‚ÄĚ and knows ‚Äúwhenever I say ‚Äėhi‚Äô, everybody‚Äôs going to laugh‚ÄĚ.
However, the comedy hero continued by saying Jackson is ‚Äúvery funny, too‚ÄĚ and was reminded of himself as a young boy when his grandson placed ‚Äúsunglasses upside down‚ÄĚ on his face.
Jim was ‚Äútotally reminded‚ÄĚ of his early years ‚Äúbecause I was a very finicky eater, and my mother said that I got out of eating every time by just making everybody laugh and howl at the table‚ÄĚ.
Jackson may well be following in his grandfather‚Äôs footsteps because Jim revealed that he would look to his own dad, Percy, for comedic ideas as the Canadian star believes he was among the ‚Äėfunniest human beings‚ÄĚ he ever encountered.
Jim, who was speaking to parents‚Äô website Babble, stated that, as ‚Äúa little tiny kid‚ÄĚ, he would look at his father as ‚Äúhe used to command the room ‚Äď and was one of the funniest human beings you‚Äôve ever met in your life‚ÄĚ.
The Bruce Almighty actor believes his dad ‚Äúwas just one of these characters that, when he told a story, he was so incredibly animated‚ÄĚ ‚Äď and confirmed that ‚Äúthe character I played in The Truman Show was my father‚ÄĚ.
