WEEDS star Mary-Louise Parker has heaped praise on her onscreen offspring Hunter Parrish - confessing she hopes her real-life son grows up like him.
Parker has a four-year-old son, William, with former partner Billy Crudup, and adopted her daughter Ash last year (Sep07).
And the actress is hoping her children inherit the attributes of her onscreen son.
She tells USA Today newspaper, "Hunter is friendly and positive, Hunter wants harmony. I want my son to be like Hunter. He's just good, and it's not fake or artificial."
Parker has also welcomed Parrish into her off-screen family, inviting him to spend annual holidays at her home.
She adds, "He's a part of my life. We text each other. He spent Thanksgiving at my house, he comes every year. My daughter goes to the set, and the first thing she says on set is 'Hunter'. She's looking for Hunter."
