Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen‘s younger child can’t get enough of his older brother!
Opening up about the relationship between the pair’s sons Lazlo, 17 months, and Sid, 5, the actor told PEOPLE that Lazlo’s at the age where he’s copying everything his sibling does.
“It is the cutest thing. He is so in love with his brother,” Biggs, 40, said while attending the Tommee Tippee Cup Event at the James Hotel in New York City on Thursday.
However, the star went on to admit that the feeling isn’t quite mutual between the siblings: “Sid loves his little brother for sure, but he still struggles with it, the fact that this other being came into his life, it’s still a hard concept.”
“He’s getting better and he alternates between being cuddly and loving and protective of his younger brother and wanting to push him out of the apartment and have him never come back,” Biggs joked.

The Orange Is the New Black actor added that things are definitely changing now that Lazlo is getting “a little chunkier.”
“He’ll stand his ground, he’ll start smacking back!” Biggs shared. “It’s interesting to watch that dynamic, but basically Laz is into whatever Sid is into at the time.”
Opening up about how he’s trying to teach his two sons to be respectful young men, Biggs told PEOPLE that he has a “two-fold” approach.
“One is showing by example and then the other [is] actually having conversations,” he explained, adding that “showing by example applies to both of them” while “having conversations or teachable moments applies to Sid, who is older and can now sort of understand.”
“So I can have a conversation with him about why when we leave our building … why every single time we leave, if the doorman holds the door for us, we have to say thank you,” he added, sharing that on the rare occasions Sid forgets to do this, Biggs reminds him, “It’s the polite thing to do and they appreciate it and it’s right.”
The actor went on to share with PEOPLE that he feels confident his two boys will grow up to “have crazy respect for women.”
“I grew up with two sisters in a very matriarchal household and … Jenny is an incredible woman, she is unbelievable,” Biggs said. “I have crazy respect for women and I think that shows. I think my boys are going to be raised to appreciate that and do the same.”
