Bono's Actress Daughter Scoffed at His Desire to Act, Told Him to "Keep the Day Job"

U2's Bono  is one of rock's most charismatic frontmen, but at least one person thinks that charisma wouldn't translate to the big screen: his daughter,  Eve Hewson.

Eve is an actress who's appeared in a few projects, including the  James Gandolfini/Julia Louis-Dreyfus  movie  Enough Said  and the upcoming Cinemax miniseries  The Knick ,  but she feels that her dad should not follow in her footsteps.

Eve  tells  W  magazine, "My dad wants to be an actor now" -- the magazine reports that she made this comment "with a smirk" -- and then goes on to say, "He’s like, ‘What do you think of me being in a movie with  Beyoncé ?’ And I said, 'Stick to your day job!"

Bono -- who turned 54 last month -- and the rest of U2 are reportedly close to finishing the band's long-awaited next album.  In an  Irish radio interview  in April, bassist  Adam Clayton  said he and the rest of the group have been doing "a lot of recording" lately, and added, "We're coming to an end, which is good."
