Hilarie Burton’s Kids Make Jeffrey Dean Morgan Watch ‘Les Miserables’ Every Christmas

Everyone has their own traditions! For Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s kids, it’s watching Les Misérables on Christmas day! The proud mother of two opened up to Us Weekly about her big plans – and noted that her husband isn’t crazy about them.

“My family watches the same two movies every Christmas and it kills my husband. He likes the Die Hard of it all. We can definitely fit Die Hard in, and then Les Mis,” Burton, 36, told Us Weekly. “My son is obsessed with Les Mis. My whole family is obsessed with Les Mis, and poor Jeffrey is just like, ‘I don’t understand why they’re singing, like why are they singing?’”

She then quipped, “It’s how you start a new year folks, a little revolution. It gets you pumped for everything that’s coming up!”

Morgan, 52, and the One Tree Hill alum share two children, 8-year-old son Augustus and 9-month-old daughter George.

In fact, the actress also revealed that she filmed her upcoming Lifetime movie, The Christmas Contract, only three months after giving birth to George. Luckily, she was surrounded by her One Tree Hill costars on set.

“This is probably the only situation that I would have gone back to work in,” she told Us, adding that producer Daniel Lewis had called her when she was pregnant and she told him she’d do it after she had the baby! So, she returned to work when her daughter was three months old. “He knew to surround me with people that I love, because it makes going back so much easier … When you’re dealing with postpartum hair loss and weird mom stuff, I don’t need strangers. I just want to be around my friends.”

Luckily, she had her mom come to set to help keep an eye on the kids!

The Christmas Contract airs on Lifetime Thursday, November 22, at 8 p.m. ET. It is followed by a special One Tree Hill cast reunion at 10 p.m. ET.
