Zach Braff would like to have children sooner than he had planned.

The 'Wish I Was Here' star, 39, has the desire to start a family after working with Joey King, 15, and Pierce Gagnon, nine, in the new movie, in which he plays struggling actor Aidan Bloom, who ends up homeschooling his son (Pierce) and daughter (Joey).

Speaking to the MailOnline, he said: ''These kids made me want children even sooner. I really enjoyed them so much. I'd like to be father like him [his character Aidan]. I think I'll be a lot of fun and they'll [his future children will] inspire me to go on lots of adventures.''

Meanwhile, the hunky star isn't looking to start a family with anyone famous as he's not keen on romancing anyone else who is in the public eye because he hates how the paparazzi ''hound'' him.

He said previously: ''I don't want to date the super-famous girls. Remember I did that once before when I dated Mandy Moore, and I didn't like it.

''When you date another famous person that's when they really hound you. That's when the paparazzi are outside your house and that's when you can't ride your bike through Manhattan because they follow you.''
