Joan Cusack: ‘I Don’t Want to Be a Helicopter Parent’

28 August 2009 5:00 AM, PDT | People - CelebrityBabies | See recent People - CelebrityBabies news »

Ron Smits/London Ent/Splash News Online In the new Lifetime movie Acceptance, Joan Cusack portrays the mom of an overachieving high school student struggling to gain entry to the college of her choice. Her two children in real life — Dylan John, 12, and Miles, 9 — aren’t yet in high school, and Joan says she’s happy that college is far from their minds.

“I have friends that are going through that stuff,” the 46-year-old actress notes to TV Squad. “There are some parents whose kids are in grade school who do think about colleges, and fortunately, I don’t have that particular burden.”

As Dylan and Miles have gotten older Joan has gotten more selective in the roles she accepts, admitting that she is hesitant to stray too far from their “awesome” hometown of Chicago. “And I use that word ‘awesome’ because I have two young boys,” she says with a laugh. »
