Friday Night Movies

krThis Week’s Q&A Goody:

When I learned I would be interviewing Keri Russell for the magazine, a few co-workers asked me to find out why she cut her long, curly locks back in her Felicity days (It was more than a decade ago…let it go, people). But I was more interested in talking with the young mom (River, 2 years) about Extraordinary Measures (rated PG; out today), the new movie that follows a couple as they try to find a cure for their kids’ rare, life-threatening disease. Here’s what she had to say about the family drama:

What did you take away from your mom role in such an emotional movie?

Meeting John and Eileen was the biggest inspiration. They’ve remained a team through the whole thing, which going through anything remotely like this would put a huge strain on any relationship. And I’m sure they have their moments, but I’ve been around them a lot now and they just sail through things with grace and humor. They’re a great example for married couples.

Speaking of couples, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Do you and your hubby have a fun tradition?

We didn’t plan for it to happen like this at all, but we actually got married on Valentine’s Day. We were like, “Oh gosh, it’s so cheesy. We can’t get married then!” But it just so happens that was the only night none of our friends had plans—because no one really wants to do anything on Valentine’s Day.

For the full interview, check out the February issue of Parents, on newsstands now.

    Dogs multiply without human interference , so their youngs’ features are set by the rule of survival of the fittest. Domestic dogs may be intentionally bred by their owners.
