Fans of the star aren't strangers to hearing all about how close she still is with his side of the family, having recently spent Mother's Day with him and even honoring his new wife, who he married in 2021.

The video really is charming, and sees the actress go on to explain: "I'm not a person [that] really… I mean I love LA, but I don't like to dress up in bikinis and go to the beach. I like to dress up warm and be in my thermies and go run around the hotel."
