Actress Bridget Moynahan tackles motherhood on the big screen in her new film Ramona and Beezus. In the movie, which is based on the beloved books by Beverly Cleary, Bridget plays a “sometimes exasperated mother” of three kids who is trying to balance family life and career. It’s a challenge that Bridget, who is a single mom to 2 1/2-year-old son Jack, knows well.
Asked how she manages it, the 39-year-old beauty replies, “With really good help… You have to have the friends and family and support system to make it all work, to remind you of your priorities.”
Bridget adds that being a mom in reality helps her to play one onscreen, saying, “Just the patience level you need to have, and multitasking. That’s a huge thing being a mom.”
A big fan of the Ramona series, Bridget explains why she is proud to be a part of the family film: “I think there’s a lot of kids movies, I’m certainly aware of it now, and even music that are geared to children and they’re inappropriate… I think this movie delivers on what it says it is. Families going to it are not going to be shocked, and it’s not material they’re going to be worried about.”
