Brooke Shields: My lazy kids

2009-05-24 10:50
Los Angeles - Brooke Shields says her daughters are "lazy little children".

The actor doesn't believe 6-year-old Rowan Francis and Grier Hammond, 3, will follow in her footsteps as child actors because they are not interested in learning "tricks".

When asked if the girls have an acting career ahead of them, she said: "They are lazy little children. When I try to get Grier to do tricks, she'll say 'No, I cannot.' Just flat out. I never even said that.

"They're their own people. I don't think they have the patience for it. They're very theatrical and very dramatic, but all kids are."

However, Brooke admits adopting her kids' attitudes could make her career easier.

Sidelined

"I should learn from Grier. It's a big thing, especially in Hollywood, to say, 'No I'm not comfortable with that, no I cannot.' I learn from her," she added.

Brooke also confessed she often felt sidelined by her husband Chris Henchy in their children's affections until recently.

"Moms are chopped liver no matter what. They suck off you, they come out of you, they destroy every part of you and then he gets all the credit. It's terrible.

"But they come up with the gems. Grier said to me, she put her hands on my face and said, 'I love you to the whole recipe. All your ingredients.'

"My eyes welled up with tears, and I said, 'Well what are my ingredients?' She said, 'Funny, and so sweet. I love you. And I love you.'"
