Toni Collette Takes Her Family On The Road

When work takes her out of town, Aussie actress Toni Collette travels with her family in tow.

Explaining that she, her husband Dave Galafassi and daughter Sage Florence, 2, "travel as a unit," the 37-year-old actress tells the USA Today that she's grateful that she doesn't have to choose between work and family.

"The fact that I can bring my child, my family to work saves me. If I couldn't, I don't think I'd be working, sadly, which would probably make me implode."

Toni also credits her hubby, who is a very hands-on dad: "It allows me to fly my kite," she says.

Toni can currently be seen in the Showtime hit, United States of Tara.

 

Toni Collette’s Sydney Sweetheart

Actress Toni Collette and husband Dave Galafassi were spotted out together in Sydney, Australia on Tuesday (February 23) with their adorable 2-year-old daughter, Sage Florence.

Little Sage was sweet as ever in a bright yellow t-shirt, striped pants and pink flip flops as her mother carried her while the trio ran some errands.

The 37-year-old Little Miss Sunshine actress and her husband celebrated their seven year wedding anniversary just last month.

 

Toni Collette & Her Sydney Sweetie

The Sixth Sense actress, Toni Collette, was spotted with her adorable 2-year-old daughter Sage on Wednesday (January 27) in Sydney, Australia.

We just spotted Toni at the SAG Awards in Los Angeles last weekend.

The 37-year-old Muriel's Wedding star is also a rockstar! Toni and her hubby, David Galafassi, have a band called Toni Collette & the Finish. Their debut album, titled Beautiful Awkward Pictures was released in 2006. The family lives in Sydney and owns a second home in Ireland.

 

Moms Hit The SAGs Red Carpet

Mom-to-be Paula Patton was aglow on the red carpet at last night's Screen Actor's Guild awards in Los Angeles, California. The Precious star, who is expecting her first child with hubby Robin Thicke, dressed up her bump in a white strapless tulle gown.

White was a hot color among the A-list moms at the star-studded event: Kate Hudson turned heads in a backless white Pucci gown and mom-of-two Kyra Sedgewick was gorgeous in Vera Wang. Up in the Air star Vera Farmiga opted for an off-white J. Mendel and Toni Collette shone in an empire-waist gown with gold details.

The always beautiful Mariska Hargitay injected some color into the evening with her magenta Vera Wang gown as did funny mom Tina Fey in a purple satin knee-length dress and Juliana Margulies in a blue velvet Narciso Rodriguez gown.

Which mom had the best red carpet look at last night's SAGs?
