The 'Boy Meets World' actress-turned-pornstar was interviewed by TMZ in Beverly Hills. Ward was asked how she felt about Eilish blaming the adult film industry for her bad experience with "violent" porn, which she says she started watching at a very young age. According to Ward, the real issue in the matter was not porn. Instead, the problem was Eilish's parents not staying on top of what their daughter was watching.

"Why was she watching violent porn at age 11? Who was watching over her? Did she have parental figures in her life? She should be blaming her parents. That's abuse. A child should not be watching porn ever at that age," Ward said, adding, "Porn isn't something that is supposed to be sex education for people. It's entertainment for adults and that's what we do. It's like saying, oh, Spiderman told me I could climb a whole building, but be like, I fell, it's his fault. It's abusive. I broke my bones." When the reporter pointed out that Eilish was 20 years old and asked Ward what was a good age to start watching porn, the latter said, "20? That's good."

Who are Billie Eilish's parents?

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell have pretty famous parents. Her mother Maggie Baird is an actress and screenwriter, who made an appearance in 'Friends' in 1999. She played "casting director number two" whose task was to ask Matt LeBlanc’s character Joey to pick up a bag of pet food while filming an advert.

She has also worked as a voice actress and video editor. She edited the music video for Billie’s song ‘Six FeetUnder’. At present, however, Maggie is a climate activist and founder of the charity Support and Feed, which is an organization that provides plant-based food to people in need. Maggie joined Eilish on tour in 2019 and often accompanies her daughter to her work events.

Eilish’s father Patrick O’Connell also started out as an actor, best known for his roles in 'Iron Man and Baskets'. Eilish had called her father one of her best friends in an interview with NME. She said: “Me and my dad are very, very similar. One of my best friends, Zoe, who I grew up with since we were three, told me that she did not understand my dad for years and years. Then, one day, she was ‘Oh, he’s you!’ And immediately it was, ‘Oh, we know him’. She said to me that I am my dad. And we are very similar.”

The celebrity siblings have had to defend claims their success was mainly due to their famous parents. The 'Lovely' singer previously said, “hearing, like, my parents were actors — OK, no disrespect, but they weren’t, like, famous actor celebrities. They were working actors.” Finneas also revealed that his parents took on other jobs on the side of acting to support their family. Their father worked as a construction worker and their mum got a job as a teacher.
