7 Wonderfully Candid Quotes About Fatherhood From Celebrity Dads (And One Random Guy On The Street)

Actor Hank Azaria started producing a documentary called "Fatherhood" to find out why in the world anyone would want to become a dad.

Then, his girlfriend Katie got pregnant. Suddenly, the premise of Azaria's film did a 180; it became a personal account of the couple's journey to parenthood. Their son, Hal, is now 4.

Along the way, Azaria asked some of his pals -- y'know, Bryan Cranston, Mike Myers, Kevin Bacon... -- about their experiences raising kids. Naturally, the result is wonderfully entertaining and true.

Below, are seven of the dads' best quotes from the first episode of "Fatherhood," which you can watch in full above.
