A Hollywood star has told how he began an online romance with an attractive girl before discovering his own father was trying to hook up with him after he became estranged.
Actor and filmmaker James Morosini, 31, said that he started a relationship with “Becca” after this person contacted him on Facebook and they share similar interests.
All seemed to be going well until he strangely discovered that it was actually his father trying to talk to him after being cut out of Morosini’s life.
Morosini, who starred in The Sex Lives of College Girls on HBO, told how he turned the unusual experience, which took place when he was 20 years old, into a movie.
He told Daily Monster : “I take the kernel of what really happened and extrapolate based on that, and use my imagination to push it to the furthest extent, ‘what if it went even further? in this direction?’
“Or, you know, what if I didn’t find out? Or what if it took me longer to figure it out? ”
The movie I Love Dad I have a plot about a son who decided to completely block his father out of his life because of their bad relationship.
But then the father, played by Patton Oswalt, tries to think of a way to get back in touch and plans to create a fake profile and fish him.
The two get on well and stick together before Morosini’s character begins to take a more romantic approach and escalates into sex.
In real life, Morosini discovered that “Becca” was in fact his father when he saw that their email addresses were the same.
And instead of the two falling apart again, they were able to build on the strange way they were reunited and now have a strong bond.
“We ourselves hit the bottom in our relationship, but it forced us to confront some of the fundamental issues of our relationship and really made things between him and me go well. a lot more over time, because we have to talk about it,” said Morosini.
