Cynthia Nixon Explains Her Parenting Philosophy

When it comes to being a parent and juggling both her Hollywood career with motherhood, actress Cynthia Nixon knows that trying to “do it all” is no walk in the park. The celebrity mother-of-three recently opened up to Working Mother magazine about her parenting philosophy and her family. Here are some highlights of what she says:

On returning to television: “Last spring I did Wit on Broadway, which was a wonderful experience. Then I had the summer off, having fun with my kids and working in my garden. It was a rejuvenating summer. I also worked on the TV miniseries called World Without End that’s now on the ReelzChannel. I play a super-bad villain named Petranilla. She kills a lot of people, including her own family members!”

On her family’s parenting philosophy: “Decelerate. We’re always rushing around and doing something, but at some point during the day, we stop everything just to be together. You have to, so your kids know that you’re fully present. I don’t want to have conversations with my kids and all they’re seeing is my back as I’m cooking dinner.”

On managing family time: “I have a stay-at-home spouse, Christine Marinoni, so that’s an incredible luxury. Being an actor, I might have a time-consuming project but then I’ll be home a few months. I do make sure that, whether it’s months or just moments together, my kids know their mom is listening to them and truly cares about what they have to say.”

Celebrity Parents Out On The Town

The Big C” cast members Cynthia Nixon, John Benjamin Hickey, Laura Linney, Phyliss Somerville, and Gabourey Sidibe, attend a screen of their show at the Paley Center for Media in New York City.  They were also celebrating the announcement that the new Showtime series has been picked up for a second season.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, I can’t recommend it enough!  It is some of the best writing and acting I’ve seen in a LONG time.  I wasn’t too sure since it’s such a serious subject, but it is just phenomenal.

Heidi Klum, Seal, Hugh Jackman, and Deborra-Lee Furness hit the red carpet last in support of the World Orphans Foundation.  Heidi and Seal were co-hosting the benefit gala.

Britney Spears was spotted on a book store run this morning in Los Angeles.  She was photographed leaving the Barnes & Noble store with her bodyguard.  I’m cold just looking at her in those shorts!

Has Fall settled in yet in your area?  The mornings almost feel like winter already!
