John Corbett and Bridget Moynahan Reveal Their Childhood Secrets!

The Ramona and Beezus costars fess up about getting into trouble as kids -- and Corbett shares his hopes for adopting

 

Most celebrities with skeletons in their closet are determined to keep them there. But not John Corbett. The star of the family film Ramona and Beezus (based on the classic Beverly Cleary children's books and out in theaters July 23) happily admits that he has a secret past -- as a peeping Tom!

"We were 10 and 11. We weren't necessarily looking for kicks in the dirty department," the 49-year-old actor tells iVillage in an exclusive interview. "We were just observing people who didn't know they were being observerd -- kinda like detectives!"

In comparison, Corbett's costar Bridget Moynahan was well-behaved as a kid. But she does admit to cutting up her friend's mother's flowers to make perfume. "We tried to sell it around the neighborhood," she says. "And it wasn't for any great idea -- like saving the house like Ramona (in Ramona and Beezus). I think we just wanted to go shopping."

The two play frazzled parents in their new movie, a role that's familiar for single mom Moynahan, 39, who has a son with ex Tom Brady. And even though Corbett -- who's in a long-term relationship with actress Bo Derek -- isn't a dad yet, he reveals to iVillage that he hopes to adopt in the future. "One day I would consider adopting a kid when I'm in hotels less than I am now," he says.

Watch our exclusive video interview to find out what's surprised Moynahan most about becoming a mom and what jobs they'd want if they didn't make it as actors.
