Ellen Barkin talks about her children

08/31/2007 at 09:22 AM ET

Ocean’s Thirteen actress Ellen Barkin, 53, is featured in Psychologies Magazine September issue’s self portrait section where she talks about the highlights of her life and her most important people. Here is what she has to say about her children,

My son Jack is so sweet. He’s a guitarist, and he only reads books from the 1960s and listens to music from the 1960s. Romy, my daughter, is beautiful – she’s like all the girls who would never speak to me in high school. She also has a temper, just like both her parents. But the children have made me much calmer. Nothing else fulfils me so completely.

Jack, 17, and Romy, 15, are her children with ex-husband, actor Gabriel Byrne, 57.

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
