The star of the upcoming I Don't Know How She Does It makes us beg the obvious question: How does she do it?

The mother of three young kids — two-year-old twins Marion and Tabitha stopped by our photo shoot and loved Mom's frilly Christian Siriano skirt (see her in it below!) — manages to balance, well, a lot.

"I love, love, love being an actor," she says. "It's still the hardest and scariest thing I do, outside of parenting. But I've always been someone who likes a busy day. I love the opportunities, and if I can manage my time and the children are okay and we're okay, it's hard to say no…"

Britney Spears Just Wrote the Sweetest Mother's Day Letter to Her Sons
Modern Family star Winter emancipated herself from her emotionally abusive "stage mother," Chrisoula Workman, in 2015, and was placed in the custody of her older sister, Shanelle Gray, in the meantime. "This is what she wanted me to do, and she pushed very hard for that and kind of put that in the forefront of her mind instead of what I wanted and what I needed," she told People about her mother. "And that was definitely hard, but I don't think that was the only issue." She also addressed the difficulty of growing up under the paparazzi's gaze: "It's really hard to have that kind of drama in your life and to be going through that tough situation and have an open court case and have everyone look at it, because it's already hard enough for abuse victims, but it's harder in the public eye when everybody has an opinion," she explained.
