Kevin Smith was surprised to bump into none other than his own daughter at the ‘weed store’, joking how it was a clear sign that she was ‘raised right’.
Smith, 51, is a big name in the weed world, having not only famously portrayed one half of cinema’s favourite marijuana dealers alongside Jason Mewes, but also going as far as to create a special strain of the stuff to promote the Jay and Silent Bob reboot in 2019.
And it seems as if the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, as the Clerks filmmaker ended up bumping into daughter Harley Quinn Smith, 22, while out stocking up.
Tagging his daughter in a selfie on Instagram, he wrote: “When you’re at the weed store and you run into your kid. Since @harleyquinnsmith got her own house, there have been moments when I ran into the kid by chance out in public. And tonight, after I ran into my only begotten daughter at the weed store, I was like ‘Someone raised that kid right’.”
In the snap, the two can be seen posing for the camera in face masks, the shop’s interior visible in the background.
Commenting on the post, Harley Quinn wrote: “It was a surprise but also not a surprise at all.”
Last June, the father and daughter duo spoke about how they're co-writing a series together.
Harley Quinn told E! News: "It's such a cool gift to be able to work with somebody you're related to.
"We have pretty similar minds, so it's kind of like you're shooting with another version of yourself. It's so much fun and we're working on another thing together now which has been, in my opinion, the most fun yet, and I can't wait for us to be able to share with the world what that is."
Her father added: "We've been writing together which is so much fun because that's make pretend, right? Like I used to make pretend with her when she was a kid.
"Now she's an adult and you rarely get to do that. But in this way we can, because it's the same thing, you sit around going, 'What if they did this, what if this happened, what if this happened?' So you get to play again, which is a rare gift for a parent now."
He continued: "I thought those days were long behind me.
"You know she's acted with me, but writing with her it's been this whole incredible different experience than that I've absolutely adored because it is like getting to play all over again."
Harley Quinn said their bond is so close that they'll often find themselves on exactly the same wavelength.
"It's crazy because he'll say something and I'll finish a sentence and then he'll be like, 'Yes!', she said.
"Or I'll say something that he's thinking and he'll be like, 'High-five!' And that's it, we're just good creative partners because we have the same brain."
