Rosie O’Donnell recalls son Parker seeing her character in ‘Tarzan’: ‘That monkey is my mum!’

Appearing on The Kelly Clarkson Show last fall, O’Donnell recalled the first time her son Blake saw her A league of its own, after a friend let her go during a party. He told his mom that she was “like a teenager” in the movie, “playing baseball and you sounded like Sylvester Stallone.”

She laughed and said to her son, “Blakey, that’s my most famous movie. That’s how I became an entertainer, from that movie.”

He replied, “Yes, I never saw it, but it was strange to see you so young.”

Clarkson asked O’Donnell how her parenting has changed over the years, to which the actress admitted that she was an “overly indulgent mother” to her older children.

“I wanted to give them everything, my elders, when I was a young mother in my early thirties. Now, as a 60-year-old mother of a nine-year-old, I find that making the world so smooth and bumpless for them does not serve them well in adulthood,” she explained.

“It really didn’t, and I was too permissive a mother to my elders and I tried too hard to fix my own childhood by being a mother to them,” she continued.

“Now I have a daughter who has autism, she is 9 years old. Her autism is magical to me because it forces me to slow down, to take the time to really see the world from another person’s perspective.”
