Just like regular folks
Thursday, February 16,1989

Bette Midler says her 2-year-old daughter, Sophie, won’t grow up feeling like a movie star‘s daughter “because I’m not treated like a star in my own family.”

“We lead a pretty circumspect life. We stick pretty much close to home,” Midler, 43, said in March’s Redbook magazine.

“I’m not going to make her go to the movie theater and watch my pictures,” she said. “I don’t want her to lionize me. I don’t want her to hear people applauding me and wondering why they’re not applauding her.”

Sophie, whose father is commodities broker Martin von Haselberg, doesn’t even watch television, “except something like the Olympics,” her mother said.

“People ask me, ‘Why don’t you let her watch “Sesame Street?”‘ I’m happy to teach her numbers and letters myself, thank you very much.”
