Olympics 2012: Q&A with Mia Hamm

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Soccer fever is coming to the States again as the U.S. Women’s Team goes for the gold tomorrow against Japan. I recently had the chance to chat with one of the sport’s most famous players: retired superstar Mia Hamm. Goodyblogger and big soccer fan Taryn even managed to the crash the interview at our office for a pic with her hero (at right, with Mia). For her new project, the athlete and mom of three (5-year-old twins and a new baby boy) has teamed up with the Grain Foods Foundation to share her nutrition and fitness tips with families. Check out what she had to say:


What made you want to get involved with this project?

“I think being involved in something like this and sharing my experiences with families about eating healthy and the importance of grains and whole grains in your diet is a good thing. I’m four months postpartum, and I’m 40, so my body doesn’t respond as well as it used to. I could sit there and eat pasta all day long and not worry about it when I was younger, and now I really have to focus on making sure I set a good example for my kids. I make a lot of mistakes, too, and I’m constantly re-evaluating how I’m doing things and trying to be better every day, whether it’s as a mom or taking care of myself. This is a new stage of my life, and it’s been a big transition for me from pretty much working out for living every day to just trying to find ways to get myself where I want to be.”

Congratulations, by the way…you look great!

“I’ve got 15 to 20 more pounds to go so….”

Was losing weight harder the second time? Or was it the same?

“Second time is harder. I’m older, and I was dealing with postpartum injuries. I had a C-section, and I tried to start running way too soon. And my body was like, ‘No!’ so I had to stop. My daughter came by the other day, and she patted me on the stomach and was like, ‘Mom, your tummy is getting smaller.’ It’s so humbling.”

I think our readers will be happy to know that it’s hard for an Olympic champion as well.

“One who likes to eat, who likes her food!”

Daniel Radcliffe: ‘I Do Want a Small Army of Children’

Friday, January 6th, 2012

It’s tough not to be charmed by Daniel Radcliffe, who will always be known first and foremost as Harry Potter.  He’s very articulate, intelligent, funny, and hyper-aware of the downfalls of being a child celeb.  In fall 2011, I had the chance to see Radcliffe being interviewed for a Broadway Talks event at the YMCA in New York City and he was surprisingly down-to-earth. recently interviewed Radcliffe about his first post-Potter movie, “The Woman in Black,” a supernatural thriller in which he plays a young father who has lost his wife.  In a candid video, Radcliffe shares how he adjusted to portraying a father on screen and why he would want to, in his words, have “a small army of children.”  Watch the video below and read highlights from the Parade magazine interview with Radcliffe

Julianne Moore Attends a Benefit Performance of Freckleface Strawberry

Tuesday, December 13th, 2011

Julianne Moore’s red hair and freckles are a source of envy these days, but, as a child, they earned her the unwelcome nickname Freckleface Strawberry. She admits, “It’s not mean, but I felt teased by it. I was living in an area in the Midwest where there were very few people who had the kind of freckles I had.” She channeled that feeling of being different into her children’s books, Freckleface Strawberry, Freckleface Strawberry: Best Friends Forever, and Freckleface Strawberry and the Dodgeball Bully: A Freckleface Strawberry Story. “I want my readers to see themselves in the stories,” says Moore. “Sometimes there are things about ourselves that we don’t like.” The series has now been turned into a musical, which she says has “a real message of acceptance and tolerance.”

Moore attended a special benefit performance this weekend where she lent her support for the charity Save the Children. “Not every child gets an equal chance,” she says. “When I started with Save the Children five years ago, one in five children was living in poverty in the United States. Now, with the recession, it’s one in four.” The charity serves children and families in more than 120 nations, helping them to access education and health care.
