London, Oct 16 Actress Melissa George is thankful her mother was always relaxed and open with her about sex and alcohol when she was growing up.
The “Hunted” actress is thankful her parents had a relaxed attitude to often taboo subjects like sex and alcohol, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
She said: “My mum Pamela made sure I knew the facts of life about sex from an early age, to protect me. She’d say, ‘Do you want to drink and smoke? Do it here.’ Or, ‘Do you want a boyfriend? Bring him home.’
“She was an amazing mum, who asked if I wanted the consequences of unsafe sex and made sure I read the right books on sex at 13. It was a fantastic way to be brought up. It has also meant I have been at ease with men all my life,” she added.
