Max Greenfield Gets Emotional Talking About Being a Dad: ‘You Feel This Tremendous Guilt'

Celebrating dads everywhere! New Girl star Max Greenfield, who has partnered with Michelob ULTRA and GOOD+ Foundation in honor of Father's Day, knows all about being an ultra dad. The actor, 36, spoke with Us Weekly exclusively about being a father of two and why he likes to parent.

Check out our interview below:

Us: What is the best and hardest part about being a dad?

MG: It’s such a hard thing to articulate. It just takes the focus off of you and puts it onto your children, who you love more than you would ever think you were capable of loving. I feel like you don’t realize what it means to be a parent until you become a parent of your own. Then you feel this tremendous guilt and have this urge to apologize to your father. You just don’t realize what you’re doing to your parents in every aspect of life.

Us: Do you ever go to your dad and ask him for parenting advice?

MG: Yeah, I think you definitely encounter moments where you think to yourself, "How do I do this?" Then you kind of figure out what is the right way.

Us: Can you talk about this how this partnership happened between you, Michelob ULTRA and the GOOD+ Foundation?

MG: They came to me with this ULTRA dad concept, which was so great and so relevant to Father’s Day. Just talking about what it means to be a dad, it ended up being an incredible opportunity. For each person who shares their own story or posts their own moment with their father on Father’s Day and uses the hashtag “ULTRAdad,” Michelob ULTRA is going to donate $1 to the GOOD+ Foundation’s Fatherhood Program. It’s an incredible cause and such a nice way to celebrate Father’s Day.
