Pint Size Social interview with Angie!

From Pint Size Social:
Actress and mom of three girls, Finley, 7, Avery, 5 and Emery, 2

“The creativity in this room is astonishing,” said Angie Harmon clicking into the NYC Hidden Valley Ranch test kitchen in her Christian Louboutin booties straight from a Michael Kors fashion show. In typical Angie style she made everyone forget the glamour of her own life as she delved into pizza making with grade school children. Watching her develop instant bonds with the kids who were there with her to promote the “Love Your Veggies Campaign,” you could almost forget that she is an A-list celebrity at the top of everyone’s list. Her recent TNT show Rizolli and Isles was so popular it was renewed for a second season before the first season was hardly underway.

When asked about her involvement with the Hidden Valley Ranch project, intended to rectify the growing problem of kids low vegetable intake and increasingly questionable eating habits, she said, “when they asked me to introduce vegetables to these kids and make pizzas with them it was a no-brainer. I knew that I could come here and learn from these kids and these other moms as well. It wasn’t about being a hero and coming here and telling people what to do and how to do it, I wanted to learn. I mean I’ve got six little girls spending the night next Saturday night. We’re gonna do Hidden Valley Ranch pizzas.” Married to former New York Giants player Jason Sehorn, this fashionable mother of three, is a lovable mix of down home family values and a celebrity wow factor that she seems to carry so effortlessly.

We sized up Angie in our PINT SIZED interview: (Click HERE for more.)

What did you want to be when you grew up?
Probably a ballerina.

What do you wish you had more time for?
My family. It’s difficult coming here for even this. Jason and the girls dropped me off at the airport and I cried all the way there, all the way through security. But he was very sweet about it. He was like, “this is what we do, we just got to go with it. This is just a part of it.” And hey (motioning to all the kids around) I get to be around these little ones.

When your children grow up, what do you hope they’ll remember?
Dinners every night and how the house smelled like food or candles. And just that Mommy was a great Mommy and loved us and cared for us and was there for us.

What is your key to balancing a successful career and being a successful parent?
Well, I think I can do it because of my husband. I really couldn’t have this life if I didn’t have Jason. He’s a really hands-on Dad and he’s really really fantastic with the girls. He gives me the understanding I need. I have enough guilt going on and he says, “sweetie, God make you an actress. Go act. Go be what He made you to be. “ It’s like that Nelson Mandela speech where he says who are you not to be everything you can be? Jason makes me feel better but I definitely couldn’t do it without him.

What is your favorite thing to do alone?
Probably go get a massage. I think you can relax faster.

So you are so busy you have to be efficient even when you relax?
Yes. I have to relax efficiently (laughing).

What are your favorite things to do with your family?
I love to watch movies with the girls. We’ll do a huge bowl of popcorn and sit and watch movies. I love dinnertime. It’s my favorite. I start cooking about 5 o’clock and the whole house smells good. They know that dinnertime is family time, every single night. No excuses. It’s my way of letting them know that they are part of a family.

What are 3 items you can’t live without?
As far as anything? Well, my phone. Um, let’s see…live without? Oh, you got me on that one. A good book and…I don’t know. I think when I’ve got it I’ll have to call you.
