There has been a little bit of a debate emerging over the past few days and weeks, about being a working mother, specifically as an actress in Hollywood. The debate emerged following comments from Iron Man actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who claimed that she has had to cut her work load down in order to make time for her children.
However, it seems that this is not the case for all stars in the acting industry, as the beautiful and talented actress Busy Philipps has given her views on having to juggle her acting career with her family life. Busy says that she does not find it difficult at all, as she is a television actress and has free time in between seasons to spend time with her family.
Philipps told HuffPost Live, "I don't ever feel like I have to stop myself from complaining about how hard it is to be an actress. I mean, it's not that hard. As a parent, I have it made. I'm on a TV show where my hiatus is [my kids'] summer, so I'm free to be with them in the summer time. I'm able to afford full-time help because of what I do. My husband also works, and my nanny makes my life doable and so easy."
Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein got married back in 2007, before going on to have two daughters together, Birdie Leigh, aged 5, and Cricket Pearl, who turns 1 in July. Meanwhile, in the acting career of Busy Philipps, we can see the actress reprising her role as Laurie Keller in Cougar Town season six, which will premiere in January 2015.
