Actress and new mom Amanda Peet graces the cover of Cookie magazine’s August issue and speaks out about the importance of child vaccinations. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the controversial interview:
On unvaccinated children… “Frankly, I feel that parents who do not vaccinate their children are parasites,” she says. “I have a lazy, fluffy, actor-y side that’s instinctive. And I have a side that’s practical and into statistical evidence. I’m not a casual person.”
On the effects her work has on her daughter… “I still feel desperately sad when I don’t win a role. When you’re able to identify your passions, then your child will be able to identify hers. It’s a great template.”
On the surprises of motherhood… “One surprise of motherhood for me was how little control I have. I thought it would be an extended, blissful romance with me at the helm, cuddling this little creature to life.” She adds, “It’s been bittersweet and humbling to let her lead, and to try not to be perfect myself.”
