Busy Philipps Says Daughter Birdie Takes After Her

Cougar Town‘ star Busy Philipps says that her daughter Birdie, 2, is a comedienne-in-the-making.

She says funny things all the time. The other day, she was telling me that her older friend was telling her the story of Harry Potter, which is about this lizard that doesn’t know that he’s a lizard and then he has to go to special lizard school. I was like, ‘He’s not a lizard Birdie, he’s a wizard.’”

She even uses some of her daughter’s funny faces as inspiration for her character on the show:

“Some of the faces that I make I feel like I have ripped directly from my daughter. She makes unbelievable faces when she’s listening to people talk, sort of scrunched up and not the most attractive faces. I feel like I do impressions of her a little bit when I’m working.”

Busy is a little sad about school starting soon for her daughter:

“I think all parents think that whatever age their kid is at is the best one, but I’m pretty sure this is the best age.  I’m excited for her to start preschool, but I’m a little sad. Baby days are gone.”
