When the topic of her 17-year-old son came up she responded, “Yeah, people assume when I say that I have a son that he’s little. He’s looking at colleges now.” But the actress is quit to admit she’ll miss him when he gone. “I’ll probably be 50-50. It’ll be like, ‘Whoo-hoo I’m free!’ The other half will be like, ‘What do I do now?’ I’m so used to being a mom, and so used to saying, ‘Put your dirty clothes in the washroom! What do you want to eat for dinner?’ I’m so used to that. What do I do with myself after that?”

Although she’ll be missing her son this time next year, she’s quick to let you know there will be no more babies in her future. “You want to know what my birth control is? It’s called ‘teenager,'” she jokingly said.

What’s next for the star? She’s currently on CBS’s “Person of Interest” as a detective solving crimes.
