    During an appearance on the Betches Moms podcast, Rachel revealed what the 6-year-old thinks of her parents' acting careers.

    "I think she knows that her mom — and her dad's an actor too — so she kind of knows that we are in that world. But she's not aware of that level. She definitely doesn't know how famous her dad is or the character he played was," Rachel explained.

    She added that she thinks the little girl knows Hayden was in Star Wars but "has no idea what that even means, because she hasn't seen anything."

    "I'd like to keep it that way. Thank god, because he kills children [in the movies], so let’s keep that from her until she’s like 80," Rachel joked.

    As for Briar watching Rachel's own show, The O.C., she's already decided that won't happen "until she's 35!"

    Rachel also elaborated on Briar's future career plans, explaining that she's already expressed an interest in acting.

    So while Briar won't be watching Star Wars or The O.C. anytime soon, it sounds as if things are going well for the little girl in the meantime while she quarantines between her parents' homes!
