The Baywatch star said that he now understands, "It can all work together at the same time seamlessly in terms of your work and your career and your family. One doesn't have to be sacrificed for the other." The soon-to-be father-of-three added, "So many fall into that pitfall. I fell into the pitfall."

His Jumanji co-star Jack Black also hit up the ceremony, as did Hollywood Chamber of Commerce's Chairman of the Board Jeff Zarrinnam, Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and Leron Gubler, the president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

The Central Intelligence actor also made sure to gush about his teenage daughter Simone, who was announced last month as the 2018 Golden Globe Ambassador

"We have such a high-quality relationship...she continues to teach me," said the doting dad during the event. "I am incredibly proud of her."

As for any tips for his daughter's duties at the 2018 Globes, the star said he's told the teen: "I want you to be present and in the moment. That's important and enjoy it because things happen so quickly. We're on this treadmill of life where there is no stop button."

He had some other wise words: "Just be present in the moment, have fun and also know you are carrying the torch for our industry that we are making our living in and you are also carrying the torch for our family."

Wise words from a wise man...
