“There’s no way in the world my kids have seen The Sixth Sense. It would scare the s–t out of them,” she said at the time, later noting that she’d likely allow them to watch it when they’re older before adding, “There are very few films my kids can watch that I’ve done!”
While speaking to Time in 2018, the Hereditary actress opened up about her work-life balance and being able to spend time with her children while shooting films – many of them in the horror genre.
“I think I have enough self-awareness to do whatever comes along. I don’t feel like it’s a balancing act at work. But I don’t know – I’ve never had a plan and I still don’t,” she said at the time. “I’m talking around the idea of directing, and just happy being a mom and spending time with my kids. We’re planning a road trip this summer. I haven’t really been to the South of your country, so I’m excited to meet some people, listen to some music, eat some food, swim in some rivers.”
