Jaime King Talks Motherhood & Friendship with 'Yahoo Style'
Here is what the 36-year-old pregnant actress had to share with the site:
On everyone asking about her celebrity BFFS: “Nobody is asking me about the majority of my best friends, who have nothing to do with the industry. They don’t care about 75 percent of my friends that are the world to me. And that makes me sad. If my sister is having a hard day or something happens at work, her trauma is just as important as anybody else’s trauma. Her happy days and joyful days are just as important as winning a Grammy. She teaches autistic children how to speak, and to me that is just as admirable as winning an Academy Award. I just wish that people would start to understand that.”
On ageism and being criticized for having much younger friends: “This whole ageist thing! People are starting to bring age into the picture more and more, and I don’t know why that is. That just started happening this year. I have friends that are 60 and 70 and 50 years old. We live in a modern world now where we are separated by our immediate families and you create families where you live. You create families that are like your older sisters, your younger sisters, your spiritual family. And that’s what I’ve done…There are certain times when certain people are like a sister even though they are younger than me. And there are times where I am the older sister even though I’m younger, or I’m the older sister to people even older than me!”
On understanding her celebrity friend’s lifestyle: “There are definitely things that come up that we can relate to and ask each other advice on… If you don’t talk to them for weeks, they know why. They know that you are away doing something, and they are not going to be mad at you because they have the same crazy schedule.”
