Kathryn Hahn Talks Hardest Thing About Being a Working Mom

Kathryn Hahn is quite the character! In fact, she has played a few on TV, too, including on Crossing Jordan and most recently as star of Free Agents, along side Hank Azaria. The fast talking actress opened up to Breezy Mama on whether she wants more kids, if she has had an office romance like her character in the past and more!

You and Hank both have 2 year olds?

Yes! We were in the same birth class, oddly enough.

Wow– Too funny! Do you want more kids?

I would love to but – this is my husband [motions to him] and he’s like “kill me now.” Yeah.. stick a fork in it. We have one of each so it’s like why ruin a good thing, but who knows. It happens so fast. I miss it already.

I know! I have five…

You have five?! You look like you’re 20! You look amazing. Don’t you love it? I love it!

[Breezy Note: We were clearly in a very dark bar] Thank you… and yes, I love it. Do you feel any pressure carrying the show?

Maybe I’m being naive, but because I get to share it with Hank and an incredible ensemble that I actually don’t feel that amount of pressure. I feel the show is so solid and written so well and I can’t wait to see where she goes.

Were you looking for a series?

No, I wasn’t it. But then again, beggars can’t be choosers [laughs].I have two little kids so I was resisting. I would never do a show just to do a show, but this was exciting.

How old is your other child?

Will your kids come to the set?

They have to. Otherwise I’ll be a wreck.

Have you ever had a work place romance like your character in Free Agents?

I did and it was an utter disaster. It never goes right! Then you have to show up at work with them… awful!

What’s the hardest thing about being a working mom?
Just to be present. When I’m with them, I need to be with them. It’s important to be present… not thinking about the scene I’ll be in.
