Drunken video brought me closer to kids: HasselhoffJanuary 29th, 2011 - 5:41 am ICT by IANS
London, Jan 29 (IANS) Actor David Hasselhoff has revealed that his infamous drunken video tape has helped him come closer to his daughters.The “Baywatch” star hit headlines in 2007 when a film of him trying to eat a burger on the floor of his Las Vegas hotel room leaked on the internet.
In the clip, his then-teenaged daughter Taylor-Ann, who shot the video, could be heard saying, “Tell me you are going to stop, tell me you are going to stop”.
The actor has admitted the tape was the wake-up call he needed to face up to his alcohol addiction, and now he’s revealed he enjoys a better relationship with Taylor-Ann and another daughter Hayley because of the incident, reports express.co.uk.
“The best part about it was what it did for my children. So many children called and said that their mum and dad are just like that. They asked, ‘What do we do?’,” he said.
“It gave my children a great place to say, ‘Hey, you just love them because we love my dad more than anything and it brought us closer to each other.’ And in the end it’s a video. Who cares, you know? I am still here.
“In the end a lot of people who saw that video laughed at it, most of the people that saw that video see themselves,” he added.
