Julianne explained that when Cal and Liv were growing up, she would take jobs that worked around the family schedule, telling Harper's Bazaar that she "didn't travel outside New York because I needed to be there while they were in school."

She added: "So if I did a little movie, it had to be shot in the city, and if it was a bigger thing, we’d have to move it to summertime so we could all go. Being able to make those decisions and have that kind of flexibility in my life has been amazing."

Julianne and Bart's son Cal, 26, is a musician living with his girlfriend in Manhattan.
