Calling his four kids his "best friends," the actor tells PEOPLE that running his new record label, Purplehaus Music, is really a family affair.
"My kids are involved in everything I do," Getty, 39, says of his four children – Cassius, 14, Grace, 12, Violet, 10, and June, 7 – with wife Rosetta. "If I'm on set directing a music video, at least two of my kids are there being grips or helping in some way."
Getty is well known for his roles in front of the camera, including on Brothers and Sisters, and he can next be seen in the drama The Judge. But in his new role as label president, he hopes to do more work behind the camera – and recently directed the video for the band Abstrakto's new single "Marcando Paso."
But whatever he's doing, it's a good bet there will be a little Getty by his side.
"My 10-year-old, Violet, will do a 12-hour-day with me," says Getty. "She will stay with me all day just watching Daddy yell, 'Camera, rolling, cut!' "
