Ian also revealed that he used to spy on his older brother when he would bring girls to his room.

"He was quite a Cassanova," Ian explained. "He used to have girls in his bedroom all the time and what I did was, I went in the bottom corner of his window and I'd pinch the Venetian blinds. I'd pinch the blinds down so I'd have a clear view."

He added: "I would get some hot chocolate, put on my clothes, my mittens and stuff. And I'd go outside and I would watch."

Ian also briefly addressed the double standards of dating when it comes to young men and young women.

"It's scary being a parent now because you know all this shit. You know all this stuff," he continued. "It's so vastly unfair. All my friends who are guys who have sons, they're like, 'Yeah! you're gonna get a date. You're gonna do this!' And all the dads with daughters are like, 'I will kill these little bastards.' It's so vastly unfair."

Well, there you go. Ian's interview with Andy Cohen was certainly illuminating, wasn't it?
