Sarah Michelle Gellar: I need some street cred!

Sarah Michelle Gellar gets a lot of recipe inspiration from her children.

(Cover) - EN Showbiz - Cruel Intentions star Sarah Michelle Gellar finds it sad that husband Freddie Prinze Jr. has more street cred with their children than she does.

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress has been married to fellow actor Freddie for 13 years and together they have two children; Charlotte, six and Rocky, three. The couple both star in Disney animated series Star Wars Rebels but their offspring and their friends are more impressed by Freddie’s efforts than Sarah’s.

“My joke is that — it’s not a joke, it’s kind of sad actually, because Freddie is on (Star Wars Rebels) and so all the kids at school are like, ‘That’s Charlotte’s daddy. He’s a Jedi,’ ” she told People magazine. “‘And that’s her mom, she drives carpool.’ I was like, ‘I’ve got to get come cred with these kids!’ ”

Freddie, 39, has voiced the character of Kanan the Cowboy Jedi since the show’s first series. Sarah joined the production’s second season in March (15) and will voice the Seventh Sister, an Inquisitor working for the Galactic Empire.

The 38-year-old may not have impressed her children with her latest role, but she has been able to make up for it in other ways. Sarah loves to bake and enjoys testing out her recipes on her little ones.

“It’s great because it’s a great experience to test them,” she explained. “They’re experts now, they know best, they’re always telling us how to do stuff. But that is where inspiration comes from.”

In fact, little Rocky has such a sweet tooth that he’s started to fight his big sister for the sugary treats that their mother makes them. When Sarah made Charlotte’s favourite dessert – brownie popsicles – Rocky had to go to great lengths to get his hands on them.

“My son kept asking for them and Charlotte was like, ‘No, no, no,’ ” she laughed. “Then I think she went to the bathroom — man, he climbed up on her chair and grabbed and ate the whole thing before she came back!”
