'Fast & Furious' Actress Jordana Brewster Learns To Never Swear In Front Of Kids
Jordana Brewster, who was part of the "Fast & Furious" franchise, learned the hard way to never swear in front of the kids. The "Lethal Weapon" actress has two young boys and one of them has been mimicking mommy's potty mouth.
Brewster told People about the one parenting mistake she would like to correct. Her husband, producer Andrew Form, already warned her about her swearing while the kids are within earshot as they will likely pick up on it.
Brewster, however, brushed her husband's warning off. She was confident it won't happen but she was proven wrong when her eldest Julian, 3, started swearing.
"It's really hard to rein it in once they do pick it up," Brewster confessed. "So that's a little piece of advice I'd give," she said, adding Julian also got his mother's temper and easily flares up.
"I think that's his Brazilian blood," the actress said. Brewster's other son, Rowan, is only 10-months-old but his mother said he's likely more mellow than his big brother as he's taking after his dad.
Brewster and Form met on the set of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" in 2003. They married in 2007 and had their first child six years later, Daily Mail reported. Both their children were born via surrogacy.
"For me, it wasn't a choice, I needed to use a surrogate," Brewster revealed when she discussed surrogacy with Yahoo. "Sometimes I feel a little left out when other moms talk about what their birth experience was like, and I feel the loss of not having carried or having been able to carry," she admitted, adding she felt awkwardness more than a judgment about her choice.
Brewster also said motherhood is indeed a juggling act, especially when she has to be on the set of her TV show for 12 to 16 hours. She's lucky, however, her extended family members are nearby so the kids also spend a lot of time with the grandparents and the cousins.
