Laurence Fishburne -- The Cry for Attention

8/9/2010 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
For the first time since his daughter released a sex tape, Laurence Fishburne was seen out in L.A. this weekend ... wearing a shirt that reminded everyone who really deserves the attention in his family.

Fishburne -- who had just performed in a stage production of "Thurgood" -- was leaving the theater hand-in-hand with his wife Gina Torres.

As we previously reported, Laurence has not spoken with his daughter Montana since she announced her move to do porn ... despite support from her mother Hajna Moss-Fishburne.
