Michael Peña Says His Brother Actually Named One Of His Kids ‘Angelina Jolie Peña’

Michael Peña, one of the leads in the upcoming comedy “CHiPs,” stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and showed why he’s one of the most versatile actors in Hollywood. Although some may peg him as a dramatic actor — some of his recent films include “The Martian” and “End of Watch” — the 41-year-old’s razor-sharp comic timing was on full display in his conversation with Kimmel.

Here, Peña hilariously recounts his experience with “CHiPs” co-star Dax Shepard, who is *very* comfortable with being nude.

“He was at like zero percent body fat the first week. He did like… He was naked the entire week!”

Peña also took a moment to tease his brother, a correctional officer, for refusing to appear in “CHiPs.” Oh, and also for naming one of his kids Angelina Jolie Peña.

“One of the kids is named Ariana, you know, and I didn’t know that it was like, after Ariana Grande. Which is totally cool, you know. The other one is Anthony Michael, like Anthony Michael Hall. And then the third one, he just pulled the trigger. He’s like screw it. Angelina Jolie. Peña. Angelina Jolie Peña,” joked Peña.

“CHiPs” opens next week. If the movie does well, could it lead to Peña being the sole lead of a comedy? We’ll have to wait and see.
