I have long since forgiven Vince Vaughn for introducing the annoying phrase “he’s so money” into our collective lexicon and now prefer to think of him as a close No. 2 to my husband in terms of awesomeness. So why do I think Vince Vaughn rocks this week?
Well, most sons take their mom chocolates or flowers. He took his mom skydiving.
The 40-year-old star of “Swingers” and the Jennifer Aniston movie “Break Up” jumped in tandem with his ma, real estate agent/stockbroker Sharon. To find out how, where and why they did it, keep reading.
The two jumped out of a plane at 12,500 feet above Lake Michigan as part of the opening act to the Air and Water Show in Chicago recently. Vaughn lives in Chicago with his wife, Kyla Weber, who couldn’t make the jump — she’s pregnant with the couple’s first child.
The two rookie divers went one after the other out of the plane, with Vince going first. His mom told the Chicago Tribune afterward that they weren’t nervous – just excited. Joked Vaughn, who dated Aniston a few years back: “That’s not exactly our hobby.”
Still, as cool as the mom-son jump sounds, memo to my son: I’ll always prefer chocolates and flowers.
