Bette Midler spoke highly of her daughter Sophie von Haselberg’s new film, Give Me Pity!.
As reported by PEOPLE, Bette Midler recently promoted her daughter Sophie von Haselberg’s new film, Give Me Pity!. While chatting with PEOPLE during Monday’s CDGA Awards in Los Angeles, the Hocus Pocus star spoke about her daughter’s career and revealed if she’d given von Haselberg advice about being an actor.
On the red carpet, Midler told the outlet, “No, I didn’t give her any advice, but I have to say she was in this movie. It just opened, called Give Me Pity!, and she plays a ’70s performer who’s doing a special — you remember the specials?”
Midler went on to note that her daughter is “fantastic” in her latest project, which sees von Haselberg’s Sissy St. Claire appear in her small-screen debut for her first television special. Unfortunately for Sissy, the live event quickly turns into a nightmare.
The Beaches star added, “And she’s wearing clothes that I would’ve worn. I just said, ‘Sophie, can I have that wardrobe?’ It was great.”
Bette Midler Said “Life Is Challenging for Everybody”
When asked if she found it hard to watch her daughter have a career in the entertainment business, Midler stated, “It is and it isn’t. I think that life is challenging for everybody. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the business or if you’re in a different arena. It’s so hard. It’s very different. The last five years have been very challenging for everybody.”
The star added that she’s “tried to feel empathetic, try to allow the empathy in and try to say, ‘Well, we’re all in the same boat,’ it’s different.” Midler then said, “People are rising, people are sinking. And I’ll tell you something: Every doggie has its day. That’s life.”
In addition to reflecting on her daughter, Midler also revealed that she’s gotten attached to the many costumes she’s worn over the years and noted that she couldn’t pick simply one favorite.
She said, “Oh my gosh, no, they’re all my babies. I am partial to the mermaids because they had an evolution and they started as rudimentary mermaids and they evolved into the most ridiculous — it was so creative. Oh, and so beautiful.”
Midler added that she feels the most beautiful “mostly in my own shows” and finished by saying, “The shows I put together for myself, because those are really the silliest and the most ridiculous and the most fun,” she explained. “Red carpet is pretty standard, but your own show is, you know, you speak from the heart.”
