The actress sat down for a one-on-one interview with Michael Strahan on the morning show to talk about her new film. “The smurfs are this odd little colony of creatures of who have stood the test of time,” Roberts noted. “They were around when I was young, my kids played with them, the movies are always so sweet and fun. So, I thought, yeah, I want to be a smurf.”

Roberts went on to discuss how much she loves being a parent, and how her children inspire her. “I love it all. I love it when it’s easy and I love it when it’s challenging,” the actress gushed. “I love being able to go to bed at 8:30 p.m. I love it all. You’re allowed to not only appreciate the weekends in a new way again, the Christmas holidays again, summer vacation is a whole new joy. It’s such a great learning experience. They’re great teachers, young people. Their point of view is so unique.”

The actress also spoke about her views on gender equality. “It really is the biggest chasm of humanity, that we can’t embrace the things that make us different and appreciate each other regardless of those things. Everybody is so frustrated with how challenging it all is. The sooner everyone can take a big breath, and just embrace, the sooner we will get to a more joyful place in the world.” Watch the full “GMA” interview below!
