PEOPLE – When it comes to raising her young children — Daisy Josephine, 18 months, and Otis Alexander, 4 on Friday — with Jason Sudeikis, mother of two Olivia Wilde says she’s not forcing them into anything.
The Booksmart director and Chief Brand Activist for True Botanicals tells PEOPLE for this year’s The Beautiful Issue that she finds it intriguing how kids have no judgment over gender-specific activities or colors, and wants to keep it that way for as long as she can.
“[Otis] loves Moana, obviously, and when he thinks about Moana, he thinks of himself as Moana,” says Wilde. “I love hearing him sing … it’s the best when you can watch them singing in the backseat of your car, and he’s just like, ‘I wish I could be the perfect daughter!’ And he’s just belting it out.”
She continues, “That’s so great because at a certain age he’s going to be like, ‘Well, I can’t, that’s … ‘ you know, and he still doesn’t judge things like pink, or dance or gymnastics. These aren’t things that are gender-specific yet.”
“I don’t know why at a certain point we tell them that’s for boys and that’s for girls, but I’m going to do my best to not force that delineation,” the actress declares.
