After the directorial debut through the comedy “Friends with Kids”, which was designed in the first International Film Festival in Toronto and was released in U.S. theaters on March 9, 2012, Jennifer Westfeldt was asked by the journalists from The New York Times if she wants to become a mother in real life, since it is involved in a relationship with Jon Hamm from 1997, the actress of 42 years old recognizing that has meditated increasingly often lately to this issue and was tempted to yield to the temptation to conceive a baby.
In “Friends with Kids“, the director and screenwriter Jennifer Westfeldt entered in the skin of a woman who decides to spend one night of love in the arms of his best friend (Adam Scott) to conceive that it grow with it without forming a couple, in order to avoid complications that they observe in the marriage of their friends (Maya Rudolph and Chris O’Dowd), but the actress really should not worry about the presence of a father figure in baby’s life because her story of love with Jon Hamm takes over 14 years and is one of the most enviable of Hollywood:
“Lately, I have thought much about it. I never imagined that I would reach at this age and will not have children. But my life has gone in a million directions that I would never have anticipated. I feel like I had woken up with a completely clear mind and I found that I have not children. We have a wonderful life together. The thought that we regret the missed opportunity to have children does not seem a far enough cause to conceive a baby. You may wake up tomorrow with a stroke of this kind in mind and will have to fight hard to make this happen.”
Jennifer Westfeldt revealed that he wrote the screenplay inspired comedy “Friends with Kids” from the experiences of her friends, whom he watched disappear over time in a universe full of dirty diapers, dance recitals and meetings with teachers offspring: “Despite the best intentions, when there are children friendly relationship between you and your partner changes, at least in the first year, in a way that is painful for both partners”.
