Celebrity fathers share what being a dad means to them

They're some of the brightest and most talented people in Hollywood, but these stars know that family should always come before fame. Here's what famous dads had to say about how they handle parenting while making it big in Hollywood.

"I've never been with my kids and gone, 'Man, it'd be so great if I was on a movie set right now.' But I've been doing a movie and wished that I was with my kids." - Chris Rock, NPR, 2012

Even as the popularity of megastar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson continues to rise, he doesn't lose sight of what is important.

"The most important thing I can do with my daughter is lead our life with love. Not success, not fame, not anything else." - Dwayne Johnson, OWN
