How exciting is it for your mom to be nominated for an Emmy? For a 2-year-old, the answer is…’Meh.’
At least that was the case for Anna Chlumsky‘s little one, Penelope. The Veep star, who just learned she was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Thursday morning — We knew it! — says that despite her own excitement, her toddler was super chill about the whole thing.
When she got the news, “I was in the kitchen cleaning up my daughter from lunch, just getting ready to start the beans that I was putting in the slow cooker for tonight,” Chlumsky, 34, tells PEOPLE.
But then Hollywood came a-calling. “It was funny, I was on the phone taking calls about the news and I looked over and my daughter was doing this thing where she lays down on the floor, just relaxing,” says the actress with a laugh. “Goes to show, whatever’s happening in Mommy’s world doesn’t have to interrupt her leisure time.”
