Ellen Barkin talks about her children

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.
