Sarah Michelle Gellar: Freddie Prinze Jr. Has More ‘Cred’ with Kids, I ‘Drive Carpool’

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!’ ”

You’d think with his upcoming cartoon role as the voice of Kanan the Cowboy Jedi on Disney XD ‘s Star Wars Rebels, Freddie Prinze, Jr. would be excited to tell his kids all about it.

But that’s not the case — and for good reason.

When it comes to daughter Charlotte Grace, 4, the eldest of his two children with The Crazy Ones star Sarah Michelle Gellar, Prinze admits he just can’t bear to break her heart.

“I don’t tell her, ‘Daddy does cartoon voices,’ because to her those characters are so real and magical. What kind of jerk would I be?” Prinze, 38, told PEOPLE during a preview of the show’s new Lego products at the American International Toy Fair in New York City.

The actor, who made a return to the small screen on Lifetime’s Witches of East End last October, says it’s probably best his daughter doesn’t know about Kanan.
