Justin Hartley was stunned when his agent offered his teenage daughter a deal.
The 'This Is Us' actor was accompanied to the premiere of the latest season of the drama by 14-year-old Isabella - who he has with ex-wife Lindsay Korman - and the teenager's "great personality" prompted his own representative to offer to put her on his client list as he was convinced she's got what it takes to be a successful actor.
Justin told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres: "She came to the 'This Is Us' premiere with me and my whole cast was there. It was really nice.
"My agent came as well -- lovely man -- and was talking to her. He comes up to me afterward and he goes, 'Listen, I just want you to know, [I] straight-up offered your daughter representation because she's got such a great personality, I think she'd be wonderful in this business.' "
But the 41-year-old actor admitted Isabella wasn't so impressed by the offer and turned it down as she has other interests, though he would have jumped at the chance to have had such an opportunity when he was younger.
He added: "She was like, 'Yeah, um, well, there are a few things that I'm interested in. I'm not quite sure if I want to go down that road.
"It took me years to get anyone to pay attention to me! But whatever, good for her. She's too cool for school, man."
Justin - who is married to Chrishell Stause - previously admitted he had "got so lucky" to have such a great daughter.
He gushed: "I got so lucky. She gets straight A's, she's kind to people, she's nice, she listens to people.
"She has her own opinions about things, she's motivated, she's driven, she's smart.
"She's got pretty much everything. I don't know where she got it but she definitely has it and we're very proud."
