In Charlie Bartlett, Davis, 43, plays a dotty society mom who spoils her drug-dealing son. But in real life she parents chem-free.

SO ARE YOU AS LOOPY A MOM AS YOUR CHARACTER? I'm the polar opposite. I'm the parent hurrying everyone out of the house in the morning, making sure their noses are wiped.

ARE YOU DOMESTIC? I'm into cooking. We bake our own bread, so we're pretty busy in the kitchen.

WHAT ARE YOUR LITTLE ONES UP TO NOW? They [Georgia, 5, and Mae, 3] have glasses on and wigs and are playing school with my husband [actor Jon Patrick Walker]. I'm at a nice phase in my life.
