Leslie Mann

My little one, Iris, doesn't know what we do for a living because all of our movies are so filthy dirty she can't see them. So she gets to, finally, see a movie that I'm in.

Leslie Mann has blasted "terrible" children's movies.

The actress - who has daughters Iris and Maude with husband Judd Apatow - says she is regularly disappointed when she goes to the cinema with her family but believes her latest movie, 'Shorts', will even be a hit with parents.

She said: "I go and see every single movie that comes out with my kids - every single kids movie. And sometimes it's like torture because some of them are terrible. This one is great. It's really good fun for the parents. Fun like in a ride. And the kids love it, so it's like thank god I made one of those movies and not one of the movies where parents want to take a nap during it."

The 'Funny People' star admits she took on the role of Mom Thompson in 'Shorts' because her kids are not normally able to see her work.

She added to About.com: "My little one, Iris, doesn't know what we do for a living because all of our movies are so filthy dirty she can't see them. So she gets to, finally, see a movie that I'm in."
