The day after Halloween, Fast & Furious star Jordana Brewster partnered up with POND’S to dish on her favorite go-to products that are “perfect for moms on the-go.” At the event, the Lethal Weapon star, 37, sat down for an exclusive interview with Celebrity Baby Scoop and opened up about her upcoming holiday plans, her close relationship with sister Bella Brewster, family life with Andrew Form and their sons Julian, 4, and Rowan, 16 months, and the possibility of adding a baby girl to their family.
CBS: Tell us about partnering with POND’S and some of your favorite products.
JB: “My favorite products from POND’S are the Towelettes because they’re perfect for moms that are on the-go. I have them in my gym bag so I can use them right after my daily sweat session, if I don’t have time to wash my face in the morning I can use them in the car on my way to drop off Julian at school. They’re just really great because they’re versatile. And because they have POND’S Cold Cream technology, they’re also really hydrating, which is awesome."
CBS: Do you have any upcoming holiday plans for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve? What are some of your favorite family traditions?
JB: “I’m hosting Thanksgiving which I’m super excited about! I’m not cooking, but I am hosting. (Which everyone’s happy that I’m not cooking although I’m learning).
We’re also going to Park City for Christmas which will be really fun. We’re going skiing with my parents.
I’m also hosting Christmas Eve because Brazilians celebrate Christmas Eve rather than Christmas Day, so that’s our tradition.
I’m not sure what I’m doing for New Year’s, but hopefully something fun."
CBS: What are your boys into these days?
JB: “My boys are very into dressing up. Halloween was just yesterday, so I recently found out that Rowan really likes candy. He really likes chocolate.
Julian loves playing pretend. If someone comes over, he’ll have five different costumes all ready – he just really loves role play, which is a lot of fun.
He’s also obsessed with Greek Myths. He’s really afraid of Medusa, but he wants to talk about her every single day. He’s also obsessed with his Christmas list. Every commercial that comes on he’s like, ‘Mom, pay attention,’ and he runs and adds the item to his Christmas list. So we’re editing that now."
CBS: We love seeing photos of your boys on your Instagram page. How do you feel about sharing shots of your family? How do you feel about paparazzi pics?
“Julian used to love the red carpet but recently he’s become more shy with paparazzi, and I think it’s about respecting that. It’s about not forcing your kid to partake in something that you’ve chosen. I think it’s okay as long as they’re having fun with it.
Rowan, on the other hand, grabs the mic — he’s all about it."
CBS: We love how close you are with your sister Bella. Do your boys bond with their cousins Kingsman and Luke quite a bit? Do you all live close to one another?
“Yeah, we’re really fortunate in that we only live a couple miles apart, and the boys are really more like brothers than cousins because of it."
CBS: Tell us about your upcoming projects. Tell us about the upcoming Fast films. What is it like being on set with such longtime costars? What can we expect from your characters?
JB: “I love playing Cahill on Lethal Weapon. She’s such a strong, independent woman and I’m really looking forward to bringing that sense of independence to Mia in the upcoming Fast 9. Mia’s no longer a little girl, she’s a woman now.
It’s so great being reunited with the Fast cast on set – we’re all so close knit. We always see each other outside of work at each other’s kids’ birthday parties and things, but it’s really special to be back together on set again."
CBS: What’s up next for you? Maybe a girl to add to the brood?
JB: “Oh gosh, trick-or-treating the other day, I noticed how many of the little girls were like, ‘Happy Halloween – thank you!’ They were just so sweet. Girls are just another ball game. I would love to have a little girl, but I don’t know that that’s in the cards for us."

“I spent the day at the #PONDSBeautyBar getting glam for the holidays! My tried & true @PONDSTowelettes are my favorite party accessory – I can always count on them to leave me with makeup-free, soft & hydrated skin after every event. #PONDSPartner,” wrote the mom-of-two.
