The Karate Kid three day box office was 56 million in the United States which was bigger than any of my movies other than Hancock and I Am Legend, so for me I'm wondering if he even still needs to live at our house. People started calling me the Karate Kid's dad, I was like alright, Men In Black 3 is out immediately!"

Ralph talked about the moment Daniel discovered he was once a teen idol:

One of my favorite moments was when my son found a whole bunch of newspaper clippings and magazines when he was 7, and didn’t know I was in the business. He came up, and was like ‘oh my God, dad was huge, and we missed it!’"
