These moments are “filled with a lot of delicious, cream-filled donuts and … catching up on all the time we haven’t seen each other,” Tamblyn, 35, told Us Weekly exclusively on Tuesday, February 19, at the EMILY’s List Pre-Oscars Brunch and Panel Discussion. “I think that’s the way all girlfriends are. When you’re that close, you can sit down with someone and immediately jump into the deepest of conversations, which are the only type of relationships I love to have.”
The Two and a Half Men alum opened up about her relationship with her baby girl, admitting that they enjoy “super boring mom and daughter stuff,” including going to the park and playing games.
The Emmy nominee has also given thought to the lessons she wants to pass onto Marlow.
“I think it’s really important to remind her that failing is OK and not trying is not OK, meaning that it’s OK if we don’t achieve the thing we wanted to the first time around,” she said. “What’s more important is that we just try, all of us, individually at any level, and even if we don’t succeed, the succeeding is not the issue, and eventually we will.”
The Era of Ignition author added: “I think as women, we are so used to knowing, like, ‘If we don’t succeed always, if we’re not constantly winning at everything that we do, how we look, how we stand, our job, our mothering, like, everything that we do, we are failures.’ I really don’t want to raise her with that mentality.”
