Actress Kristen Bell found working on Bad Moms a “treat” because she got on well with her castmates.
The 36-year-old actress said she enjoyed “hanging out” with her co-stars on the set of the movie, sometimes with their kids and on other times without the offspring, which gave them the chance to remember they are all more than just someone’s mother, reported Entertainment Tonight.
“We so are [still friends]. It was such a treat because we did bring our kids some days, but other days we just hung out on set as girlfriends, which was sort of the theme of the movie, to remember that you are an autonomous female who needs female friendships, or any friendships.”
Though they’re not working together any more, Bell knows she can always call on her co-stars – Mila Kunis, Jada Pinkett Smith, Kathryn Hahn, Christina Applegate and Annie Mumolo – for parenting advice.
“We all had kids of different ages, all six of us that were in the movie, so we shared advice at all times. It takes a village, and previously we lived in the same house or cave as our village.
“Now, we’re all separated into different households, so it’s important to stay in communication and help each other: ‘Hey, how did you deal with this issue? What did you do when your kids weren’t sleeping? What did you do when your kids wouldn’t eat healthy foods?'”
