Q&A with Burn Notice's Gabrielle Anwar
SR: How do you balance filming a series and your acting roles with motherhood? Is it difficult? Is it striking a balance?
GA: It's impossible, it's absolutely impossible. I don't know who these women are who can do that balancing act. It's not me. I find acting to be quite possibly the most narcissistic profession there is and motherhood to be the most selfless, so I'm a total schizophrenic at the moment. I think I'm probably failing miserably at either to the extent at which I could be succeeding. I honestly don't know how to do it. I strive for that every single day. It's very difficult. It's so difficult to maintain one's self as a mother, period, let alone have a career, no matter what that career is. I don't know how women do it. My hat is off to every single mother who can function in multiple directions, truly.
