Holes star SHIA LeBEOUF has reconnected with his father after admitting he was a dreadful dad who didn't know when to stop partying.
The 20-year-old actor admits his father was in and out of rehab while he was growing up and making his mark as a child star - and never imagined he'd have a proper relationship with his dad.
He tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper, "He got lost in the drugs of it all. Now he's back in the art thing, but it took a while. He didn't know when the party was over.
"He didn't know how to be a father... Now he's the greatest father."
'Wilson', starring both Dern and Harrelson, is released in U.S. cinemas on March 24th.
At just 13, Robert Irwin is continuing his father’s legacy and he’s just as enthusiastic about animals as his dad.
