Teen actor HALEY JOEL OSMENT is glad he starred in the new movie A.I - because he wouldn't have been allowed to see the film if he wasn't in it.
The 13-year-old star's mother, THERESA OSMENT, has already banned her nine-year-old daughter EMILY from seeing the film, because she finds it too scary for kids - and she'd have no problem banning Haley Joel, if he wasn't the movie's star.
She says, "If he wasn't in it, I'm not sure I'd let him see it.
His little sister's not seeing it.There are some parts I think that parents should see first,before they expose it to their children. It's very traumatic and you need to be responsible." (RGS/U/ES)
