The film and TV star doesn't like bringing work home with him, so he can focus on family time with his two children - nine-year-old Elisabeth Anne and six-year-old John - and wife Nancy.

"I don't really talk so much about work, because when I'm home, I just don't feel like it's that interesting for my kids - it's just what I do," he told People.com.

"I don't think it defines me at all in their eyes. And I think the less we make of it, the better off for them, and certainly for me, too."

Steve - who next stars in Dinner For Schmucks with Paul Rudd and Jemaine Clement - revealed his children are following in his comic footsteps.

"My kids doing something funny? Oh boy, they do something funny every day," said the 47-year-old.

"Kids are funny in general because they're unfiltered and they're wise, but they're not jaded by anything.

The comedian and actor added: "Their sense of humour is very pure, and they don't even a lot of times know when they're being funny, because it's just so honest. And I think that's what makes them so funny."
