She’s the star of a popular TV drama; she's appearing on the big screen in 2011; and she just released a new perfume. So what's bringing Kate Walsh down?
“I thought I’d be married and have three or four kids,” Walsh says in the April issue of MORE magazine. "I feel like a loser. I would definitely love to be a parent. But I definitely don’t think I want to do it on my own. Things are just going to go the way they go...I always knew I wanted to be an actress but I think I always wanted a quote-unquote normal life [too].”
The “Private Practice” actress was married briefly in 2007. But the soon-to-follow very public divorce from film executive Alex Young taught her a valuable lesson.
“I’ve always had the courage thing,” Walsh says. “I had to develop the rest. I’ve learned to seek other people’s counsel more. That’s a good part of growing up.”
Her character, Dr. Addison Montgomery, is facing similar dilemmas this season. “Private Practice” is a show about real issues, Walsh said: “What it’s like to be a woman in your forties, childless, in a relationship, been married, divorced… not that there are any parallels to my life.”
Speaking of “Private Practice,” there’s a new sexy in town and his name is Benjamin Bratt. The actor will appear in this season’s finale, according to The Hollywood Reporter, before joining as a series regular.
We’re sure Walsh will welcome him to the set with open arms. “I think I’ve always created community,” Walsh says. “I can create an instant home… I think that’s served me well and other times not served me well - like thinking, ‘Oh, hey! Let's get married.’”
