Leighton Meester tells Adam Brody how motherhood has influenced her work

Leighton Master knows that her children have influenced her career, and she wouldn’t change a thing. The husband of the 37-year-old actress, Adam Brodyinterviews her for Interview magazineand she says their children influenced her acting career.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2014, share an 8-year-old daughter, Arlo, and a 3 year old sonwhose name they have yet to reveal.

“It’s inevitable that it has changed, and we’ve had these conversations endlessly. I wouldn’t change a thing and I’m proud of the mother that I am,” Meester tells her husband. “But I also feel like I’m open to a lot of self-doubt and worry, and more extreme hypervigilance and neurosis.”

“So all I can do is take it one day at a time,” she continues. “But when I’m with my children, our children, I feel like all I can do is be present. When I’m at work, I miss them so much. It’s hard as a mother not to feel like you There’s not enough to do and I think this will always be reinforced by our society.”

Meester notes that there is also a “sweet, canned response” to the way children have influenced her career, explaining, “It gave me a lot of compassion, and a whole different level of appreciation for other people and a sensitivity that I I don’t think it exists. I’ve had that before. Especially when it comes to children. It’s not like a regular job. You work non-stop, day and night, for 3 months, and then not at all the rest of the time. It deserves the preference.”

Through it all, Master and Brody stand by each other’s side. That even applies to work, as they recently teamed up for the thriller River world.

“You’re the person I always want to work with,” Meester tells Brody. “You’re my best friend and the best acting partner I could ever hope for. It was very familiar, so I felt very safe and comfortable doing all those quite intense scenes.”

When ET spoke with Meester last year, she became real about mother’s guilt.

“It doesn’t seem like it’s getting better,” Meester told ET about being away from her kids. “I thought maybe it would be that way, but it’s not. And now I’ve really taken advantage of this kid thing. So it’s kind of a double whammy of, ‘Well, there’s a baby now and he has it. seems like he needs me.”

‘Work is the ultimate debt [because] “I want to be here, I’m having fun,” she added. “Of course I think it’s good everywhere, but this world, our society, everything, it doesn’t really give us much space to feel whole. on both sides, and feeling good about going to work, or leaving our kids, or being with them. We can’t do that either.”
