Jamie Lee Curtis thinks she's done her job as a mother properly as her son wants "nothing to do" with her.

The actress is appearing in two episodes of American crime drama NCIS and is open to more television work in the future.

She raises two children with her husband Christopher Guest, Annie and Thomas. Now both are old enough to take care of themselves, Jamie expects to start working more.

"Yes actually [I'd like to do a TV series]," she said. "I did a comedy series. Yes I do [want to do more]. I've raised my children and so I could clearly see myself doing more regular work now because my youngest is 15-and-a-half and the last person he wants to see is me. I think I've done my job right, he wants nothing to do with me."

In NCIS Jamie is seen on screen with Mark Harmon, who she also appeared alongside in the 2003 movie Freaky Friday.

She enjoyed catching up with her old friend and hinted she has something of a crush on him.

"I'm very fond of him and he's very fond of me. That's just a given, I'm not going to lie to you and say this is a horrible, difficult job to [work] with him," she laughed to ET Online. "I'm happy to have it, I'm happy to be here. I'm not going to say anything more than that. He makes me blush a little bit, because he's such a sweet guy."
