Ethan Hawke jokes to daughter Maya about his attempt to ‘openly flirt’ with Rihanna: ‘The family shame’

Ethan Hawke was called out by his daughter Maya Hawke over his attempt to flirt with Rihanna at the 2015 NBA All-Star game.

At the game, Hawke, 52, was pictured in paparazzi photos – that later went viral – having an animated conversation with the singer, 35, as they sat courtside with the actor’s then 13-year-old son Levon.

In a recent Variety video, the father/daughter duo was playing a game to determine how well they knew each other when the 25-year-old “Stranger Things” actress was asked if her father would rather attend a Lady Gaga or Rihanna concert.

“I have a very fast answer because that information is really available online,” Maya teased while writing down Rihanna’s name. “RiRi baby, by a long shot.”

“After Rihanna’s brilliant half-time performance, I’m hoping my son can find it in his heart to forgive a Dad for taking his moment,” the actor wrote in the caption.

However, Levon appeared to take it in stride, commenting, “Iconic content.”
