Matthew Lillard is adding yet another role to his résumé. The Descendants actor and father of three is celebrating the release of his directorial debut, Fat Kid Rules the World, a coming-of-age story based on a book he discovered a decade ago. We recently welcomed Matthew to our LA studios to talk about how his own awkward preteen years made him connect with the story and what, if any, fears he harbored as a first-time filmmaker. Matthew also opened up about how his kids have changed his outlook on life and work and why he couldn't wait to become a husband and father. Find Fat Kid Rules the World in select theaters now and via On Demand and iTunes starting Oct. 25. Lindsay's top courtesy H&M, jeans courtesy Habitual">
