A Rainy Day in New York reveals a chat with Maya and Ethan Hawke: A peek inside the art house.

Ethan and his daughter Maya Hawke find themselves in the middle of a rainy day in New York, seeking refuge from the pouring rain in a cozy restaurant in Chelsea.

This father-daughter duo, both famous figures in the world of art-house cinema, offer an intimate look into their lives.

Maya Hawke, star of Strange thingsshared a charming anecdote about trying to refer to his father as “Ethan” on the set of their new film, Wild cat.

She had thought it would be professional, but it turned out to be more distracting than she expected.

“I started using his name — ‘Ethan’ — to be like, ‘I’m a pro,'” she explained.

“And then I realized that it’s actually more distracting for people. They would say, why are you doing that? So I mostly called him Dad.”

Ethan Hawke was quick to clarify this Wild cat is entirely a figment of Maya’s imagination.

He joked: “Simply put, I’m a perfect father! And I’m not ashamed of it.”

Maya’s reaction hinted at her concern about how such a statement might be received.

Indeed, the conversation surrounding ‘nepo babies’, celebrity offspring and the perks they can enjoy, has become a focal point on the internet lately.

Maya admits, “I had moments of uncertainty about it while we were shooting the film,” even though she was also a producer on the project.

She acknowledges the lack of nuance on the internet, but emphasizes the deep bond she shares with her father.

Maya states, “My father was a huge teacher for me and we want to work together. We like being with each other.”

Hawk calls his family the “boring indie Kardashians.” Their dynamic is devoid of any hint of stereotypical 20-something eye-rolling shamed by her famous father.

Maybe it’s because her father, Ethan Hawke, exudes 1990s artistic cool, counts Pedro Pascal and Gwyneth Paltrow as friends, and isn’t shy about publicly flirting with Rihanna on the patio of Madison Square Garden.

Diving in Wild cat: An extremely independent film among Hollywood blockbusters

It is worth noting that Wild cat stands worlds away from the commercial appeal of a mainstream blockbuster like Barbie.

This independent production is a low-budget film from the 1950s, painstakingly shot over just 25 days against the scenic backdrop of Kentucky.
