I never get star struck, perhaps it’s growing up in LA or perhaps it is the fact I am more in awe of what doctors do than actors. And I am even less star struck since having kids. OK I have a little crush on David Duchovny, but I have met him and he is super nice, super hot and super out of my league. A couple of months ago when we were leaving France it was at the end of the Canne Film Festival so there were some celebrities at our airport (mostly rappers I did not recognize) they were being shuttled through the security line ( meaning they didn’t have to wait) and escorted through the airport and even upgraded to first class.
In my head I am shouting “I created two human beings, birthed them and I am raising two people – what did you do sing a few songs – why am I not in first class don’t you know I am a mom?” Clearly those words never left my head but I felt very strongly about them.
Now I have never acted and I am sure it is hard work too. But seriously of all the work I have ever done being a mom is the hardest – I mean a few wrong moves and you could have a menace to society on your hands and it is YOUR fault. Everything I do is calculated and thought out and no one is handing me a gift bag or VIP treatment or a star on the walk of fame. In fact most of the time I am covered in food and lucky to shower. Now when your child says I love you mommy or calls you their best friend that has to be better than any Oscar but a little star treatment here and there wouldn’t hurt.
