Michelle Pfeiffer Talks Adoption, Parenting, and Dealing With an Empty Nest

Michelle Pfeiffer

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 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.”

A celebrity who admits that parenting is difficult? What a nice change of pace. Read what else Pfeiffer said about motherhood, including her decision to adopt her daughter as a single mom, in her full interview.

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
