“Oh no, Blue Steel is so not in my wheelhouse,” Taylor, 44, says in the March issue of Good Housekeeping, on stands Feb. 16. “I’ve watched my husband do it and I don’t even know … mine is so bad.”
Adding, “Ben does a whole thing where he turns and looks. I just purse my lips and try to look very serious. He does it great, like he gets a furrowed brow and he holds it and I would say that’s one of the most fun things about being married to him because people will just yell at him on the street, ‘Blue Steel,’ and he does it in a heartbeat, which I love. He’s such a good sport about it.”

Though Taylor admits her Blue Steel needs some work, her son, on the other hand, “has gotten really good.”

Taylor also talked about the differences between marrying into a showbiz family (Stiller’s parents are Jerry Stiller and the late Anne Meara).
“Jerry Stiller likes for us to all go around the table, and every year says, ‘Let’s all go around the table and talk about why we love being in show business,’ and there’s probably like three of us at the table that are in show business,” Taylor says. “My dad certainly isn’t, and so we do a lot of laughing and there’s going to be great stories for the kids to tell about their grandparents and parents someday.”
With a hectic schedule, Taylor never ceases to forget her favorite role: being a mom.

“I feel like being a mom, for me, has hands-down been the priority … I feel like I struggles more when I started to go back to work because I would feel so guilty, and my daughter really made it hard when she was younger,” the actress says. “It was before she could text or any of those things. It was, ‘Why are you going? Why do you have to leave me? Why?’ Really dramatic! Now, she gets it.”
Adding, “Last night when I landed here I had a happy family, they were existing without me for one night. It’s been easy for me to sort of juggle both because my priorities are always there with them, but it’s great to be able to do a little work every now and then … When my husband’s working or he’s on a film, I tend to not work that time and vice versa, so we make it work, it’s good.”
