When it comes to following in her footsteps, Angie Harmon jokes that she hopes her three daughters with former NFL star husband Jason Sehorn -- Finley, 6, Avery, 5 and Emery, 1 -- are "not at all like me," the actress tells iVillage in an exclusive interview. "All three of them have really great senses of humor. I'll claim that! I have a really sick and fantastic sense of humor."
The 37-year-old star of the new TNT show Rizzoli & Isles (which premieres July 12) credits two people with her ability to balance acting and motherhood: her "fantastic husband" of nine years and fellow TNT star Kyra Sedgwick of The Closer. "She said, 'Let go of the guilt and keep your heart where your feet are,'" Harmon explains. "So if your feet are at work, that's where your heart is. If your feet are at home, that's where your heart is."
And when the former Law & Order actress's feet and heart are at work, she's in her element, especially playing Boston homocide detective Jane Rizzoli in her new show. "I'm kind of a high-energy adrenaline junkie, so I have now found what I'd do if I wasn't an actor -- I'd go be a homicide detective," says Harmon. "It was fantastic."
Watch our exclusive interview above with Harmon to find out how she feels about running in heels and why she doesn't make acting sound exciting to her daughters.
