Picks and Pans Review: Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Rise and Shine
• How does the star of CBS's The New Adventures of Old Christine handle career and home? Well, she doesn't sleep in.
ANY SIMILARITIES BETWEEN YOU AND CHRISTINE? I'm also a working mother [to Henry, 16, and Charles, 11]. It can be fraught with tension at certain times. I definitely relate to the frantic fear that you're screwing up—of doing the wrong thing despite the best of intentions.
YOUR SECRET TO BALANCING WORK AND FAMILY? I get up very early and get a lot of things done before my kids get up. And I compartmentalize and medicate myself on a daily basis. Not really! I don't medicate. But I do get up early.
THAT WAS A GREAT MOMENT WHEN TINA FEY GAVE YOU A SHOUT-OUT AT THE EMMYS. I was so shocked. I had no idea that was coming. Honestly, I was pleased as punch. I sent her a gift.
ANY PLANS TO COSTAR ON EACH OTHER'S SHOWS? I barely have time to buy aluminum foil.
