Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. are both starring on the upcoming season of Disney’s animated Star Wars Rebels — but according to the actress, her husband gets way more credit for his role with their children’s friends than she does.
PEOPLE caught up with Gellar at the Mamarazzi event celebrating Foodstirs, the actress’ new baking kit venture, in New York City on Wednesday, and she revealed what their 6-year-old daughter Charlotte‘s pals think of her and Prinze’s roles.
“My joke is that — it’s not a joke, it’s kind of sad actually, because Freddie is on [Star Wars Rebels] and so all the kids at school are like, ‘That’s Charlotte’s daddy. He’s a Jedi,’ ” Gellar tells PEOPLE. “‘And that’s her mom, she drives carpool.’ ”
She jokes, “I was like, ‘I’ve got to get come cred with these kids!’ ”
