Michelle Pfeiffer Talks Adoption, Parenting, and Dealing With an Empty Nest
Is it just us, or have celebrity parents seemed less relatable than ever recently? We’re not talking about multiple nannies and lavish nurseries — that’s to be expected at this point. But saving Baby’s umbilical cord? Pre-chewing his food?
Maybe that’s why it was so refreshing to read actress Michelle Pfeiffer’s recent interview with Parade.com. When asked about the difficulty of parenting versus acting, Pfeiffer said:
“Being a parent is the hardest thing in the world. Sometimes I feel like I have to go back to work to get some rest, and we work a minimum 12-hour day making a movie! None of that is nearly as exhausting as parenthood—the psychological toll it takes on you because these lives are in your hands. I take it very seriously. Just when you think you’ve got your kids figured out, they change on you.”
