When the General Hospital actress sat down with friend and podcast host Maurice Bernard she spoke about her mental health. She opened up about the downsides of being a public figure and the negativity, revealing she was no longer affected by those kind of comments.

Just like any mother, Kirsten clarified that not reacting to criticism doesn’t mean she won’t rise up for her loved ones.

She joked (but with a menacing tone): ”I don’t wanna obsess over the bad thing someone said. The exception for this is if someone talks about my daughter or my parenting. Then, I will respond… lethally.”

Even though the actress was being serious, she and Maurice laughed as he added: “Or about me.”

Close relationship with her daughter

Although Kirsten and Brandon have separated, their good relationship as friends has enabled them to co-parent and raise their daughter.

Kirsten and daughter Harper have a very close bond and the actress has uploaded pictures of her to Instagram.

In a post celebrating Harper’s eighth birthday, Kirsten wrote: “There is so much more to her than all of this and I love that, as the years go by, I get to watch her personality grow – even though I can feel it going by too fast. I love her more than life.”
