Our favorite celebrities dish on their starring role as parents.
By Celia Shatzman
She's a regular on NBC's HANNIBAL, which is too scary for her sons to watch. But her turn as an affable witch in ROOM ON THE BROOM, soon out on DVD, is totally kid-friendly.
Q. After playing so many serious roles, was it fun doing an animated film?
A. I've worked on a couple of animated pieces before, like THE SIMPSONS. It's a whole other world. Lots of fun, but harder than you would imagine.
Q. Did you score cool points with your sons, who are 6 and 4, doing ROOM ON THE BROOM?
A. I've read the book to them probably 10,000 times, which is one of the reasons I was interested in the voiceover role. But they don't know I did it. Actually, they don't really know what it is I do. I'd rather keep it from them as long as possible because I'd rather they like me not because of what I do for a living, but because of the mom I am.
