Man at His Best

Chris Rock took time during his busy schedule hosting the Oscars to pull the ultimate dad move on Sunday night. The comedian gave a shout out to his two daughters, lamenting that he couldn't be around during a crucial time for them: Girl Scout cookie-selling season. So instead, he helped their troop get the edge on the competition in a huge way.

He brought out Girl Scouts into the Dolby Theatre and pressured celebrities to take out their cash and buy some boxes of cookies. Not like it was a tough sell. Stars like Kate Winslet, Sam Smith, John Legend, Mindy Kaling, Christian Bale, and Charlize Theron seemed psyched to get their hands on some Samoas and Thin Mints:

Last year, they made $600 and finished number two in their area. This year, with the help of the Girl Scouts of Los Angeles, they made a whopping $65,243. Not bad for balancing work and family.

Wasn't as hard as I thought it would be... #oscars
