Sorry Ayana Ta and Imani! Your daddy Don Cheadle says you aren’t old enough to watch R-rated movies yet!

Good girls do NOT watch R rated movies says actor daddy Don Cheadle!

We ran into Don on at his Mar. 2 premiere of his new action drama Brooklyn’s Finest (rated R) and he told us he keeps a very close eye on the movies his two daughters watch!

So, are Ayana Tai, 14, and Imani, 12, allowed to watch their dad star in the film, which features a lot of violence  and explicit prostitution? “Hell no!” he told EXCLUSIVELY. “No way, my daughters … they’re not of age to watch a movie like this.”  Aww, what a protective dad!

Don wants to teach his daughter valuable life lessons. “[I want them] to be good people,” he says — “I think they’ve kind of learned that. And, I think if by the time somebody’s 15 and they don’t know that, it’s a little too late,” he continues.

We know the girls must be a little annoyed they can’t see the film, but they should be happy they have such a caring dad!
