Lily Allen Challenges ‘Having It All’ Myth as Working Mom, Jokes About Career Impact of Motherhood

EntertainmentLily Allen Challenges 'Having It All' Myth as Working Mom, Jokes About Career Impact of Motherhood

Lily Allen, the renowned singer-songwriter, recently made headlines when she shared a shocking encounter with a Hollywood producer. In a candid revelation, Allen recounted being called into a producer’s office and advised to have intimate relations with actor Billy Baldwin to supposedly enhance his performance in a film.

One day, Stone was called into Evans’s office by the producer of three slightly more memorable films, The Godfather, Rosemary’s Baby, and Chinatown, Evans, telling her that “he slept with Ava Gardner and I should sleep with Billy Baldwin, because if I slept with Billy Baldwin, Billy Baldwin’s performance would get better.” And since that was the issue, we needed Billy to improve in the film. And if I could just have sex with Billy, that would save the movie, and the true issue with the movie was me because I was so stiff. If only we could have chemistry on film.

The “Smile” singer continued to be frank, saying that it is unreasonable to expect to be told “you can have it all” while working as a mother. “It really annoys me when people say you can have it all because, quite frankly, you can’t.”

Allen and her ex-husband Sam Cooper share two children together

It’s okay for some people to prioritize their careers over their families. However, she continued, “I feel like that really left some, like, nasty scars that I’m not willing to repeat on [my kids]. You know, my parents were quite absent when I was a kid

Allen is the daughter of producer Alison Owen and actor Keith Allen. As a disobedient adolescent, Allen was expelled from numerous schools for her habitual drinking and smoking, which coincided with her rapidly advancing musical career.

With her ex-husband Sam Cooper, whom she wed in 2011 and divorced in 2018, the 38-year-old mother of two shares her girls. Actor David Barbour from “Stranger Things” is her husband at the moment.

She stated, “I chose to step back and concentrate on them, and I’m glad that I’ve done that, because I think they’re pretty well-rounded people,” in reference to her decision to put her family first. With crossed fingers, f—ing.”
