Matthew McConaughey‘s daughter Vida, 10, shared some constructive criticism with her dad when she crashed one of his latest interviews. The actor, 51, was in the middle of a video chat when his middle child came into frame to help him answer a question. “What’s one lesson you find yourself learning over and over?” Amy Jo Martin asked while speaking to Matthew for her Why Not Now? podcast. “We learn lessons — we know they’re right, we know they’re true, [but] activating them and having them instinctively become a habit is a different thing,” the Oscar winner began, before beckoning Vida over towards him.

The actress shared a cute snap of the pair whipping up a sugar free chocolate chip cookie, following the October 20 release of Matthew’s new memoir, Greenlights.
