Days of Our Lives' Alison Sweeney Covers 'Redbook' June 2017

Alison Sweeney takes the cover of Redbook magazine’s June 2017 issue, on newsstands on May 23.

Here’s what the 40-year-old Days of Our Lives star had to share with the mag:

On tearing her ACL: “At first it was hard for me to even get out of bed—which was good in one way, because I realized how many things I just do for my kids so we can all move on with our lives. I’m sure a lot of moms relate to Oh, it’s just easier if I get the orange juice. The first morning they brought me breakfast in bed, I was so proud. I thought, They really can do this stuff. Maybe I’m not giving them enough responsibility!”

On the police: “My husband is a cop, so my kids really respect them, but I understand that for some people there are extenuating circumstances and they don’t [trust the police]. Of the men and women who commit to being officers, the much larger percentage of them are honorable, brave people, and we should be appreciative that they are willing to risk their lives for us on a daily basis. However, as in every profession, there are going to be people who aren’t good at their jobs, don’t try hard, or are bad guys who got into it for the wrong reasons. The news emphasizes those stories. I want my kids to know that it is their responsibility to understand any situation they are dealing with comprehensively and not just listen to one side.”

On taking a break after tearing her ACL: “The whole sleep-when-you’re-dead thing? I’m over that. Before, I was always going, as though if I took a break I would never get up again. My doctor saying, ‘No, you have to do this’ gave me permission to rest. I can’t say I ever came to enjoy it, but I learned to appreciate it. If you can train yourself to take 20-minute catnaps, you’ll wake up really alert.”
