Sarah Drew: People Are Going Back To See It Over And Over

Posted: Updated:

Who would have thought that a movie about a stay-at-home mom would be so controversial?

Certainly not Sarah Drew, whom audiences know as April from "Grey's Anatomy" and who now stars in the theatrical film, "Moms' Night Out." She says she was shocked that reviewers were, as she put it, so "vitriolic."

So what didn't the critics like about it, and how does Sarah respond?

Watch Sarah address the controversy head-on with Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.

Yes. I think I preach the message of the movie to myself daily and the message is in my heart because I got to make the movie. “I am enough. I’m a mess but I’m a beautiful mess. I’m His masterpiece. And that’s enough”.

Oh man… Mommy guilt is no joke! I know that first hand. I think we all walk into motherhood hoping that we are gonna be the world’s greatest mom and then we are faced with tiny people who give you no clear indication that what you are doing is ever right or wrong. It’s really hard to measure success as a mom and it’s really hard to gauge whether we are doing it right. While attempting to breast feed, I felt like the world’s biggest failure. While working, I feel like I’m not present enough for my son. While sleep training, I felt like everything I was doing was wrong and then I would get mad at myself for feeling frustrated. Motherhood is beautiful… My child is beautiful… Shouldn’t I be grateful every minute of every day? Well, no… I don’t always feel grateful and happy. Sometimes I feel like tearing my hair out and then I feel guilty for feeling like tearing my hair out. We moms need to be kinder to ourselves. My sweet husband reminds me of this almost on a daily basis, but it is still a challenge.
