Applegate: “I don't care what anyone thinks of me”
Christina Applegate admitted she does not care what others think about her appearance while running errands with her young daughter.
Although her character portrays the overly-perfect PTA mom in Bad Moms, Applegate is quite different when she’s busy with her five-year old daughter, Sadie.
She told Hello! magazine: “I don’t care what anyone thinks of me, in the sense of I go pick up my daughter in pajamas and dirty hair that I haven’t washed up in seven days. I haven’t had a proper pedicure or manicure in about a year and a half, so I’m really not that guy who cares if people are judging me as a parent or a human.”
The 44-year-old actress still enjoys her day job, but takes on less work to be with Sadie as much as possible.
“I’m going back to being a mom. I consider myself a stay-at-home mom. I do like, a job a year to pay some bills and a little voiceover or something or an endorsement – trying to find work that doesn’t take me away from my kid. So, right now, we’re just gearing up for kindergarten. We’re going from a little teeny hippie pre-school to 600 kids in a public school,” she added.
While admittedly shy in her 20s, the actress made a decision to “let go” in her 30s. Her daughter, on the other hand, started being goofy at a very early age.
She continued: “When I was my daughter’s age I was incredibly shy. I was shy up until I ended ‘Married… With Children’. I started getting goofy in my 30s. But she’s got all that now. And I realize she’s such a goof with her weird accents and stories and mannerisms. She was polishing my toenails the other day and we put on meditation music because we pretend it’s a spa and there’s a video of her sitting there and someone asks what she’s doing. She look at the camera and goes, in a Russian accent, ‘I’m doing spa treatment, OK? Go on Go on.’ And then she started painting.”
