Barkin Has The Last Laugh On Her Kids

Hollywood actress ELLEN BARKIN's son was mortified when he found he had to watch one of his mother's movies for a school project - as he refuses to watch his parents on the big screen.

The 51-year-old star admits her children hate the thought of seeing her work, and was amused when her child had no choice as the book THIS BOY'S LIFE was on his syllabus at school.

She says of her kids, "They're horrified. If they see my films on television, they immediately click off.

"My son came from school last year and said, 'This is the worst thing in the world. Guess what book we have to read?'

"I said, 'I don't know.' He said, 'This Boy's Life. And guess what movie we have to see?'

"I said, 'Aw, you know, its a wonderful book and a very good movie."
