When you think of Jerry O’Connell you might not immediately associate him with comedy. But if you ever hear his Howard Stern appearances, you’d know he’s an extremely funny guy. I’ve decided to compile some of his greatest quotes below. Enjoy!
On his twins learning to talk
“If they see a clock they look at it and say, ‘clock,’ but they mispronounce it. They drop the ‘l’ from it.” I don’t want to react because I don’t want them to know it’s a bad word, but I want to encourage them to talk so I’m like, ‘That’s good!’”
On how he tells his twins apart by their size
“I’d be like, ‘Hey, Big One, get over here!’ Then one night my wife and I were watching a show called ‘Intervention’ . . . It was about two twins and they’re anorexic twins. It’s like one was heavier than the other and then she got an eating disorder and they’d try and out-skinny each other. It was awful. I was like, ‘Never again. I’ll never do it again.’ So now I’m like, ‘You, the possibly a little bit, teeny bit bigger… .”
On calling his pregnant wife “huge” during his Conan O’Brien interview
“I regret calling my wife huge on Conan O’Brien. I meant to say that there are specific areas of my wife that are larger than normal and growing everyday. All other portions of my wife are quite petite. I apologize to her and will be coming home with flowers.”
On the sex of his children (while his wife was pregnant)
“[I'm having] two girls…or two boys with really small genitalia.”
In response to Howard Stern’s questions about when his wife, Rebecca Romijn, punched him in the face for lying to her.
“I would defend myself but I’m afraid of getting punched again. I’m Kidding! I’m kidding, honey. She’s listening in her car right now and punching the steering wheel.”
