Closer Weekly reported how the couple believes in bringing up their kids the right way by being parents who “yes” and “no” whenever needed. Talking to E! News the Interstellar actor stated: "Sometimes loving your kids means giving them just what they want. Other times it means tough love. Affluent people can give their kids everything they want, but they're not usually going to get what they need. Loving a child is a lot harder if you really give a damn. 'No' takes a lot more energy. It's a lot easier to say 'yes.'"
