Jami Gertz: The Hot Mom and The Painted Turtle

Jami Gertz: The Hot Mom and The Painted Turtle

“Being a working mom is not easy. You have to be willing to screw up at every level,” jokes Jami Gertz, actress and a founder of The Painted Turtle, a camp for children with serious illnesses. “I’d read articles about actresses who made it sound so easy to balance it all. I finally realized they were full-of-it!”

Jami makes efforts to keep her sons (ages 14, 11, 7) shielded from the public eye. She says, “As a mom, I always feel I have to protect them. I talk about them because they are the most important things in my life but they are private people. I won’t use them for my own press.”

Still, she says that her boys were excited to join her for the premiere of her current movie “Keeping Up With the Steins”,’ a comedic family film directed by Scott Marshall, whose father, Gary Marshall plays a role. Gertz calls it a nice change from the usual summer blockbusters.

Jami says, “My sons were so excited to be picked up in the limo and be part of everything. I think they are proud of me. They see me doing what I love. They get it.”

Her sons haven’t expressed an interest in following in their mother’s footsteps, though. She says, “We are a regular sports-oriented family. The NBA is much more enticing to them than being in show business. They’d rather play for the Lakers.”
