The 43-year-old Clueless actress spoke about spending time with her 9-year-old son during an interview with The New York Times on Sunday (May 31).
“My son and I take baths together, and when he’s not with me, I take a bath and that really feels nourishing and comforting,” she said of passing the time at home amid the pandemic. He also enjoys “bouncing on the mini trampoline, dancing or jump roping.”
Alicia welcomed Bear in 2011 with her then-husband, Christopher Jarecki.
In the same interview, she discussed nourishing herself: “I always bring everything back to diet. When I don’t eat well, I don’t feel well, and then my moods go all over the place.”
In an earlier interview with Us Weekly, she opened up about raising Bear on a vegan diet, saying he has “more energy” than most kids.
“I always laugh, like, ‘Oh, my poor vegan baby, he’s so weak,’ because he’s jumping all over the place and he’s so wild. But there’s a calmness to him and a centeredness. He’s not off the charts,” she explained.
She went on to reveal she doesn’t “yell or scream or discipline him,” saying “All I have to do is say, ‘Oh, Bear, no thank you,’ and he goes, ‘OK, mom.’ He’s got it. We just can talk like that because he’s not feeling crazy. When they feel bad, when they eat unhealthy food and they don’t feel good, then they don’t act good. Same as us.”
She was recently seen going on a socially distanced walk with this fellow star.
