Working 90 hours a week filming TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles, living in two locations (LA and Charlotte, N.C.), and mothering three girls under the age of seven is no easy balancing act for Angie Harmon.
“I’m a mess,” actress, 38, tells Good Housekeeping in its July issue. “I’ve lost 10 pounds since I got here. This is the hardest time in my life, for sure.”
Angie knows she’s not alone in these “mommy guilt” feelings.
“When I feel like I’m not doing what I am supposed to as a mother, I will torture myself,” she says. “I don’t know how to deal with it. I find some consolation in the fact that all mommies feel it.”
“If there was a way to cure mommy guilt, I would bottle it and be a bazillionaire,” Angie jokes.
At least, Angie finds support in fellow actress and mom, Kyra Sedgwick, who offers her sage advice.
“Kyra told me to keep my heart where my feet are, so when I’m at work, my heart stays at work, and when I’m at home, my heart stays at home,” she says. “With that idea in mind, I can sort of stay on track."
