There’s one thing you might not know about actress Christina Applegate: she really loves to dance. Unfortunately, due to injuries, the 42-year-old hasn’t been able to dance for a while, but that doesn’t mean her 3-and-half-year-old daughter, Sadie Grace, can’t! In fact, Christina lives vicariously through her...maybe a little bit too much...

Sometimes I’ll find myself watching her in class, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, you’re so being a dance mom,’’ Christina admits to People. “I’m sitting [there] in my head going, ‘Why isn’t she pointing her foot that way?! Someone needs to go in there and fix her foot!’”

Is it just us, or are you sensing a possible Dance Moms cameo in the future for Christina? Just saying! But for now, the Anchorman star will continue with her occasional guest judge appearances on So You Think You Can Dance and, of course, live the dance life through Sadie.

“I now have to live vicariously through my daughter,” Christina says. “I watch her and help her speak through her body — channel her emotions and her joy through her body. [I help her] get grounded, get all that stuff out.”

And sometimes Christina notices that the “help” starts to cross the line to Dance Moms territory. 


“I was stretching her point today,” Christina reveals. “I was like, ‘Let me stretch your point a little bit, Sades. Not for any particular reason — just giving you a little massage.’ I tricked her!”

Oh Christina, aren’t you just the sweetest thing?
