With a new movie, a new television series and a toddler to care for, Bridget Moynahan certainly has a lot on her plate. The secret to her success?

“Really good help,” Moynahan, 39, confesses to the Boston Herald. “You have to have the friends and family and support system to make it all work, to remind you of your priorities.”

Now one of those priorities is making family friendly films like Ramona & Beezus, now playing.

“I think there’s a lot of kids movies, I’m certainly aware of it now, and even music that are geared to children and they’re inappropriate,” she says.

“I think this movie delivers on what it says it is. Families going to it are not going to be shocked, and it’s not material they’re going to be worried about.”

Being mom to 2½-year-old John Edward Thomas informed her work on the film, in which she plays a mom-of-three.

“[It] helped me understand about being a mother onscreen,” Moynahan adds. “Just the patience level you need to have, and multitasking. That’s a huge thing being a mom. Obviously it’s different when you have three.”
