Cree Summer is learning so much about life through her daughters. The celebrity mom tells Fusion that Hero and Brave’s free spirits are inspiring.
“They are so blazingly individual and they teach me so much everyday,” the celebrity mom says. “My job now is to maintain their fearlessness,” Cree adds. “I don’t want them to get to that point where they are embarrassed or scared of everything. That’s the danger of growing up, you just get so f****** afraid of everything. And what you’re usually most afraid of is the judgment of a bunch of people you wouldn’t even hang out with on purpose. Who gives a s***?”
Summer is a strong advocate for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. “Shirley Chisholm was the first, and wouldn’t that have been nice? But it was impossible in that racist, sexist time,” she explains. “Make no mistake, this is a miracle, because this planet is very racist and very misogynistic still. There is so much that hasn’t changed. We just want basic human rights for women, so the fact that we have a woman running for president, I jump for joy.”
Cree Summer and husband Angelo Pullen have two kids together. See video footage of Hero and Brave at home below!
