How Edie Falco deals with kids’ eye-rolling and one-word answers
Edie Falco has snagged four Emmys, but that doesn’t seem to mean much to her kids.
“The Sopranos” star told Page Six that her children — 14-year son Anderson and 11-year-old Macy — are right on track for their age.
“One is a teenager and one is en route and they’re exactly where they should be at this age, which means I haven’t actually spoken to them at months. One word answers,” she explained at the Broadway opening of “My Name is Lucy Barton” on Wednesday night.
Falco, 56, revealed that the monosyllabic responses are accompanied by copious amounts of eye-rolling and “stomping up stairs.”
The “Nurse Jackie” actress also says that her kids have routinely branded her the worst mother in the world for many years — but it clearly doesn’t bother her. When asked how she reacts to the dis, Falco said she flatly replies, “Hurry up and get ready for school.”
Falco’s latest series “Tommy,” in which she plays the first female chief of police for the Los Angeles Police Department, premieres on CBS on Feb 6.
