Leslie Mann, her husband Judd Apatow and their daughters Maude, 16, and Iris, 12, attended the premiere of The Other Woman at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif. on Monday (April 21).
In the film Mann plays plays a vengeful wife who is cheated on. In a recent interview the actress talks about motherhood dictating her career choices.
She says, “There’s a sacrifice being made. I’m not willing to spend too much time away from my kids so I usually don’t work that much. Judd makes way more money than me. Besides, I’d rather be home.
“I just get to that moment where everything drives me crazy; I don’t want to live in this house anymore; I don’t want to live in this city; I want to tear everything up and move all the furniture. That’s when I know I need to find myself a creative outlet outside of the house.”
Once a month she gets together with her girlfriends.
Mann shares, “Once a month I get together with my girlfriends and we usually check into a hotel or go to someone else’s house. We can talk for 15 hours and it just flies by. There’s usually a lot of wine and stuff. We talk a lot about our husbands. Private stuff. When you have little kids, you lose friends because you’re so busy but, as they get older you realise how important it is to have your girlfriends around.”
She also talks about Maude stating, “My eldest daughter is 16 and she’s so crazy and hormonal right now, I feel bad for her, but she’s also awesome and super smart. She’s a writer too, like her dad. She tells me when I look really bad and to change my clothes. She thinks she’s probably way smarter than me and she probably is smarter than me. Which is kind of annoying.”
