Busy Philipps, whose real name is Elizabeth Jean but is nicknamed “Busy” because she is always on the move, became a household name after playing Laurie Keller on Courteney Cox's series, “Cougar Town.”
According to reports, the actress worked out a way to spend more time with her daughter on the set of her drama series by turning her dressing room into a playroom for Birdie.
Speaking to Life & Style magazine about her difficulty being a working mom, Busy Philipps said, “I have my dressing room set up as a playroom and my 4-year-old actually said to my husband [Marc Silverstein] a few weeks ago: ‘Dad, they got rid of mom’s dressing room at Cougar Town and they made it into my playroom.’”
She continued, “It's hard to be a mother who works, and it's hard to be a mom period, so when you add work in, it's just an added pressure. I could spend more time working out and in the gym, but I don't want my daughter to grow up and think that her mom didn't take her to music class because she had to go workout.”
Busy, who is also godmother to Matilda Ledger, daughter of late actorand actress Michelle Williams, added, “That’s gross, and I don't want to be ‘that’ mom. I always tell Birdie that I’m so lucky because I have two jobs that I love. The first job is being her mother and that’s the most important job.”
