The Schnabels seem like a free-spirited brood. Actually we’re just going to say what we have always thought: that they are probably a Naked Family. You just know that Papa Schnabe totally walks around the Palazzo Chupi sans pajamas all the time and is all, “It’s beautiful.” Schnaked. Anyway, the point is, it sounds like they are probably pretty open about sex and the like, which is why we were not surprised to read that Julian Schnabel fully supported his 21-year-old son Vito’s relationship with creaky 44-year-old model Elle Macpherson. “She’s a beautiful woman, and my son is a very handsome guy,” Schnabes told an Australian newspaper. “More power to the both of them if something happened to them.… I think he’s a healthy young man with good impulses.” See? That is such a naked dad thing to say.
