Jeff Goldblum is ready for his kids to get jobs.

The actor, 71, revealed that his children — Charlie, 8, and River, 6 — will have to support themselves when they get older. The “Jurassic Park” star shares his sons with wife Emilie Livingston.

“‘Hey, you know, you’ve got to row your own boat,’” he recalled telling them when he recently appeared on the iHeartPodcast Table for Two with Bruce Bozzi.

“It’s an important thing to teach kids. I’m not going to do it for you. And you’re not going to want me to do it for you,” he continued.

“You’ve got to figure out how to find out what’s wanted and needed and where that intersects with your love and passion and what you can do. And even it if doesn’t, you might have to do that anyway.”

Goldblum and Livingston married in 2014. Four years later, the “Asteroid City” star opened up about being an older dad in an interview with iNews.

“I keep doing the math, and keep extrapolating where they’re going to be, and where I’m going to be. And when I buy a watch, I wonder who’s going to get it,” he said at the time.

“I’m glad I waited. It feels great to do it right now, because all the things I’m considering are perfectly suited to the big questions and challenges of having kids, and what you want to expose them to,” he added. “What you want to leave them with, what life is, and what kind of life you contribute to them.”

Goldblum isn’t alone with not wanting to leave his fortune to his kids. Over the years, Guy Fieri, Marie Osmond and Mick Jagger have publicly said that their money will stay with them.

“The children don’t need $500 million to live well. Come on,” the Rolling Stones musician told the Wall Street Journal in September 2023. “You maybe do some good in the world.”

One month later, Osmond exclusively told The Post that leaving her children with her inheritance would be harmful.

“They don’t learn the joy of hard work, of picking themselves up when things don’t work. I believe in general that you rob children of the experience of figuring out who they are,” she noted. “They don’t learn that you cannot buy your child self-esteem — they have to earn that.”
