The 34-year-old actress has son Otis, four, and daughter Daisy, who turns two next week, with her fiancé Jason Sudeikis, and has said she's "determined" to shed any stereotypes surrounding her two children, as she doesn't want either of them to think they can't do something just because of their gender.

She said: "My little girl immediately assumes that anything pink is for her and anything blue is for her brother. And she's only two! So that means it's out there in the world, women limiting themselves from a young age, and I'm just determined to raise her without those self-imposed limitations because the world's gonna do it no matter what."

The 'Life Itself' star wants to show her brood "every example" of a "fair society" so they don't grow up with expectations relating to their gender.

Speaking to People magazine, she said: "It's really interesting having a boy and a girl because you see the difference in the way that their consciousness blossoms amidst the onslaught of marketing and messaging that comes towards kids.

"Little kids are still being told men are the powerful, strong ones and women are the weaker, more vulnerable ones.

"When I witness that in my kids, I realise how much of a responsibility it is of parents and caretakers to show them every example you can think of a more balanced, fair society."

Meanwhile, the 'House' actress recently said she tells her children they've "won the life lottery", as she wants them to know how lucky they are to grow up with wealthy parents.

She said: "[I tell them] that they won the life lottery. Everything they have access to is privileged, so they have a responsibility to conserve resources and to be kind, embrace gender equality and understand the value of their education. If we can raise a generation that thinks that way, I really think the world will improve."
