In the new March issue of Redbook magazine, on which she graces the cover, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, mom of Henry, 17, and Charles, 12, spoke about letting go of her mom guilt.
She talked about trying to balance family life and her career, which is a never-ending battle, but she said that letting go of the guilt has helped.
She admitted, When I was doing Seinfeld and my oldest son was a babe, I had a nursery set up at work. I would nurse him, then run out onto the set, and I always felt like, ‘Who am I, here?’”
She continued, “Guilt is a bitch. It’s so useless as an emotion, for me anyway. It clouds things. I’m not saying people shouldn’t feel guilty, but for me, it makes certain decision-making more difficult. It’s good for my kids to see me have artistic desires, work hard, and have success.”
