Helen Hunt

Helen Hunt says she won't let her daughter get in front of the movie camera because a film set is "a very adult place to be."

Hunt, 47, raises her daughter Makena Lei Gordon Carnahan, 6, with husband Matthew Carnahan, a producer and director.

The actress herself appeared in TV series as a child, during the 70s. She had roles on programs like, "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "The Bionic Woman," and "The Swiss Family Robinson."

However, she reportedly says she was "never a child star," adding:

“I was in school every year and had normal friends and I loved it and here I am, so I can’t say that I wish I hadn’t done it.

“I used to say, ‘No, I didn’t miss any of my childhood,’ but it is a very adult place to be, a movie set.

"Like, it’s a little weird. I think if my daughter was interested in acting, I would find ways for her to act in theater that has to do with her school or a kids’ improvisational thing.

“There are ways to do it where you’re not on a movie set with 60 adults, which I loved at the time, but as a parent, I don’t know that I’d be dying to put her in that spot.”
