Chattanooga Times Free Press - Parade - - PERSONALITY -

The Su­per­man Re­turns and The Art of More ac­tress, 34, stars Nov. 7 in the Na­tional Ge­o­graphic Chan­nel’s se­ries The Long Road Home. It’s based on a real-life am­bush of U.S. forces oc­cu­py­ing Iraq, an event that came to be called “Black Sun­day.” Bosworth plays Gina Denomy, one of the Army wives wait­ing for news back home in Texas.

Tell us about your char­ac­ter, Gina. She had just given birth to her son a day or two be­fore her hus­band [Cap­tain Denomy, played by Ja­son Rit­ter] de­ployed. She’s try­ing to keep it all to­gether un­der extraordinary cir­cum­stances. My char­ac­ter is part of a group that if there was a fallen sol­dier, she would go to the home to sup­port and care for the widow.

You’ve got a grown step­daugh­ter, Jasper, with your writer/di­rec­tor hus­band, Michael Pol­ish, and you’ve said you’d love to have chil­dren of your own “soon­ish.” Love, fam­ily and home are ev­ery­thing to me. I’m lucky in that it all con­nects, that I have a part­ner that can to­tally sup­port me as an artist, as do I with him. Fam­ily, for me, is num­ber one.

What does liv­ing in Mon­tana give you that you don’t get in L.A.? I grew up rid­ing horses and I loved big sky, wide-open fields and rid­ing through them. It re­ally is very med­i­ta­tive to me, and it’s very cre­atively in­spir­ing. Hav­ing space is very im­por­tant as an artist.

Which of her films do moth­ers say is still an in­spi­ra­tion to their daugh­ters? Go to Pa­rade.com/bosworth to find out.
