Reservation Road star Mira Sorvino, 40, is mom to Mattea, 2, and Johnny, 1, with hubby of three years Chris Backus, 25.

Has she become choosier with her roles?

“I want them to be proud of what I did when I was their mom,” she says. “You definitely are aware of being an example for your children. I have two lives – one as an actor and one as an actress, and they don’t always intersect. Sometimes it’s just plain entertainment and for the love of it, and other times there’s a social message that’s coming through it.”

Why do she and her fifteen-years-younger hubby make the perfect couple?

“We love each other very deeply,” she tells me.
