Never has there been such an apt first name as Busy Philipps‘. The Freaks and Geeks alum certainly has her hands full these days, between juggling a flourishing acting career and parenting duties for two kids.
But as much influence as she has over their lives, there’s one big thing the actress admits she’s afraid of not being able to control when it comes to her daughters Birdie Leigh, 7½, and Cricket Pearl, 3.
“My greatest fear and worry is that one of my daughters will be sexually assaulted in her life,” Philipps, 37, shares candidly in an interview for Mini Magazine‘s Summer 2016 issue. “I know the statistics and I will try to help by starting conversations early about sex and protecting themselves, but it scares me to no end.”
Adds the mom of two and wife to screenwriter and producer Marc Silverstein, “I really hope that meaningful steps will be taken on campuses and I hope consent becomes a part of sex ed in schools.”
